I presume the article in the Independent 21st August entitled ‘I’d heard all the horror stories about solicitors’ was the one to which Jose M. S. Alfonso was referring. If you read the article nobody was accusing UK solicitors of acting negligently, dishonestly or fraudulently just of ‘delays in the legal process’. If solicitors in the UK acted as do many Spanish lawyers they would soon find them selves in trouble with the law society.
Whilst we are quoting UK newspapers an interesting comment from this week’s Mail on Sunday property section‘99% of Spanish lawyers give the rest a bad name’ There is no smoke without fire. (I am sure Jose M. S. Alfonso falls into the smaller category.)
