    Dear Mr. Exall,

    Thank you very much for all that is contained within this blog. It is an invaluable resource for a young solicitor such as myself.

    As a claimant litigant in person faced with two dishonest company directors who will clearly stop at nothing to run their non defence I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the information contained on this blog in readily understandable language. It has helped me to keep my case on track regardless of what is put in my way.

    Gordon, I don’t seem to have received any more blogs since February 21. I still seem to be subscribed. Any thoughts?

    Re : Loss of Earnings and the Self-Employed -some key issues.

    A most interesting area to re visit, particularly in relation to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the Self Employed Income Support scheme grant and its conditions for the business to be adversely affected. Could this be a potential source for dispute in the future.

    Dear Mr Exall, as a Defendant litigant in person faced with an allegedly dishonest solicitor (who the Legal Ombudsman and the SRA have failed to hold to account after many complaints and investigations spanning years), I wanted to say a mighty thank you for every scrap of insight you have provided. I feel the competent authorities have spectacularly let us down. Being a litigant in person is an anxious and distressing activity. I have been living on my nerves and consumed by self-doubt. Your blog has given me renewed confidence and allowed me to find information so much more quickly than using a keyword search in Bailli Law. .I can’t thank you enough. This is pro bono legal advice of the finest order for those who cannot afford to fund legal representation. Unlike the solicitor who is pursuing us, you are a credit to your profession and I take my hat off to you. You are doing a marvellous job and I salute you. Thank you for giving me hope and the confidence to stay the course.

    Many years ago Gordon was a law lecturer at Manchester Poly as it was then known. On the first day of the 1st year there was a room of nervous students and to break the ice Gordon went around the class asking the question ”why are you doing law” The answers were the usual, make lots of dosh, help people etc until the last two students; one from Malaysia, the other bloke was local. ”Sir I do law because my country suffers badly from corruption and by being a lawyer I can go back and clean up my country” replied the tearful Malaysian.
    ”And what about you” asked Gordon.
    ”To go back and clean up corruption in Wigan”
    I last saw Gordon at Bradford County Court many years ago and write to thank him not only for being a star and excellent lecturer but for this excellent blog which has saved me many times at Court. Thank you.. Jaz
