About The Book
Civil Litigation is a lottery It’s expensive risky stressful and time consuming - and there’s no guarantee of success at the end of it all
Litigation is bad enough in itself but equally uncertain is whether you will get good advice from a Solicitor Will they tell you the true costs? Will they tell you the true risks? Will the action really benefit you or the Solicitor? Will they tell you all you need to know before committing you to a course of action that you may later regret? How do you really know what you are letting yourself in for?
