I think maybe people have different experiences sometimes and I suppose a bad experience may make you very angry.
I had not realised this thread was so old though! Perhaps someone is angry and is searching for her name and posting on the threads? I don't know.
I am keeping an open mind as I can see how things can go wrong with representatives - legal or not. I have to say I've not been massively impressed by any lawyer/advocate I've had dealings with yet and I speak as a lawyer desperate to pay for someone to take the stress off my hands!
It's a namechanger with no previous history, but it's my guess that she lost her case and blames the lawyer. Any lawyer is only as good as the case he or she represents, it's not an exact science - so good lawyers can lose too.
It's not nastiness. If someone says I would not use recommend this person, then this is neither nastiness or slating a person it is simply saying I would not recommend. The reasons are not given, if they were then perhaps this would be nastiness.
