    Default Legal letter recieved

    img077.jpg
    As per the forum rules, I am publishing this letter that was received earlier. Please note that we have acted upon the request. However, for anyone else considering this route for dealing with an issue, I would like you to note the following:

    • Sending a letter is the absolute slowest way to get a problem dealt with; use the built-in complaints system. If I had been on holiday, this letter could have been sat by my letterbox for two weeks.
    • When making a complaint, include a link to the specific posting. In this case, he attached a barely readable printout. I then had to guess which of the postings in the thread was the subject of the complaint.
    • Include details about why you are complaining. Just saying that something is 'libel' doesn't mean that we necessarily agree or know why it might not be true.
    • Don't expect us to reveal personal details about forum users. If you want us to breach the data protection act, get a court order.
    • Don't claim that I have 'permitted the publication of a libel'. That's utter nonsense if you haven't already informed us of it.
    • Don't tell us how to deal with infringements of the rules. The moderators are perfectly capable of judging the appropriate action to take.

    Well, that explains something.

    Well said Mr. Butcher .. I think the credibility of such a "legal" letter was exposed once before for what it is.

    Mr Butcher repped.

    I wonder what Tilbrook's of Ongar charged for sending this letter?

    As my quick google search shows Tilbrook's of Ongar is formally used as an address for The English Democrats http://www.electoralcommission.org.u...-UKPGE2010.pdf I suspect something close to nothing.

    That probably won't concern the partners too much as The Law Society shows the following:

    http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/choosin...4&searchType=L

    Number of offices: 1
    Number of regulated principals in this organisation: 1
    Number of regulated principals at this office: 1
    Number of solicitors and lawyers at this office: 1
    The 1 being Mr Robin Tilbrook, leader of The English Democrats.

    Why is Tillbrook's apostrophised?

    I assume it's to indicate Tilbrook's practice.

    Tilbrook looks a bit strange - and Tilbrooks makes it sound as if there's more than one Tilbrook.

    Doesn't really need one though, does it?

    I can think of other things to call it, but I might get a letter then...

    I have looked at many other solicitors on line and can't one other that is apostrophised. All the others if they are not companies etc. would put it as,

    Tilbrook - Solictiors

    The former being the practice name and latter being a description of what they practice.

    Yes, Tilbrook - Solicitors looks OK now that you've written it.

    Perhaps the apostrophised version is meant to look cute and cuddly.

    Having dealt with a couple quite extensively over a short time - as executor of my father's will and selling our properties in the UK - solicitors need to do something about their image...
