Contact Andrew Beck. He can do it on legal aid as well. I will be asking ACC tomorrow for a please explain as it cost me $16,000 in legal aid to fight there reckless decisions. I can email Andrew in the morning for you & ask him if i can give you his contact details. I have them on me as well. Andrew will take it on win or lose no matter what the outcome is.

I have tried several well-recommended advocates to take my case, they all appear way too busy. I'm surprised they aren't motivated to look in depth further to people's cases before making a decision. I am doing mine on my own now as I cannot afford the legal costs since losing $20,000 on an advocate that has resigned due to illness. Feeling a little shafted but what do you do


$20,000 and they didn't complete the job?

Do you mind telling us who this advocate is?

Cheers

An alarming story - that some lousy advocate has charged you $20,000 without even completing the job, whatever their health. I worry for you that you felt obliged to pay so much money in advance although pleased for you that you have that sort of money handy.

For the rest of us can you advise who did charge that sort of money in adavnce so we can be wary (and even warn others) please?

Its not as uncommon as people might think. My very first client had been dropped by a law firm because she was struggling to pay for the two reviews she had in quick succession with a third in the wings.

The firm took the Review costs and then hit her with a bill for $10000. Then they simply abandoned her. I won the claim but if I hadn't she was looking at losing her house.

Good for you lupine. Once a house is lost it is hard to get one back again.

A little troubling though that Corrupt Motive has posted such an alarming story but has not given any useful details.

You don't suppose that this is, well, not quite true?

What possible reason could you have to think that claimant was charged tens of thousands of dollars for ACC related legal services and then the lawyer resigned through illness or any other reason? The situation is extraordinarily common.

For example
1. My lawyer tried to resign three times during a seven-week trial on the basis that he wanted more money despite the fact that he was not actually qualified to have taken the case in the first place. Nonetheless despite being not qualified and not having enough money to continue the judge directed him three times to continue. needless to say he was totally inadequate and ill-equipped to represent me. He did not even get the search warrant documents back to enable me to construct a defence, did not call any witnesses and when they showed up anyway and the judge directed him to bring the witnesses forward, he had never met them before and he did not know what to ask them.

2. With the civil appeal another lawyer who applied for legal aid found that legal aid would not pay which left me with no funding for a lawyer to go up against the ACC. He did not prepare anything so warrant prepared everything for him but when it was confirmed that he would not be paid he resigned. As a result I had to prepare my own case and make my own submissions but by the time the ACC had finished making their presentations Who found they needed three lawyers to go up against me, the judge decided he did not want to look at what I had prepared and decided to rule based on what the ACC had submitted without any regard to anything I had submitted.

Both of these cases involved more than $100,000 each. Another fellow I helped get out of prison had spent over $100,000 on his case and the lawyer lost despite the barrister being the most senior partner in a very large law firm. The length and the breadth of my knowledge was sufficient to bring a Queen's Counsel up to speed who presented my submissions on behalf of this fellow with the result that he was removed from prison as an innocent man which establishes that my knowledge exceeds that of a senior barrister of a large law firm Regarding this particular ACC matter.


Keen to help there are very very few legal representatives in New Zealand they have any idea what they are talking about concerning ACC matters. There would probably only be five or less in the whole country while the ACC has a whole legal department so it is no wonder that the ACC are able to manipulate the courts in New Zealand in their efforts to develop caselaw in their favour.

Again on what possible basis do you claim "Corrupt Motive" experiences are not true? It seems to me that you are trying to discredit the poor fellows name even though he faces a dire situation.

I guess we shall see once Corrupt Motive actually advises who did charge that sort of money in advance so we can be wary (and even warn others).

If not, well...

It is probably timely that we should have a heads up on who is in the ACC legal and representation business with the New Zealand.
Obviously there are people who come and go in the ACC advocacy industry while others continue to hone their expertise and would be worthy of some discussion.

Obviously it is not intended for this thread to be an open spot for any advertising but rather discussion in relation to each and every individual in this arena, good and bad, in order that we may survey who we have available to us to provide assistance.



JOHN MILLER LAW are the best, they are fantastic and know their stuff

Without doubt John Miller law is a good specialist law firm when dealing with ACC.

However you mention on another thread that you are having problems that seem to be relatively straightforward. Is there any reason why John Miller''s law firm is having difficulties in this matter?.
