Dear General Council of the Bar,
Please let me have some information under the
F.O.I.

If barristers have been instructed, through solicitors , to give counsel opinion on merits of taking a personal injury case to court, without relevant documents and information relating to the case ......then isn't this against the rules of the barristers code of conduct ?
Please let me have the information.

Two Barristers were asked to provide counsel opinion, ON THE MERITS OF TAKING A PERSONAL INJURY CASE TO COURT by A paralegal, by the name OF DEAN VINCENT TALBOT AT ROSS ALDRIDGE PERSONAL INJURY SOLICITORS. Dean Vincent Talbot did not give the 2 barristers RELEVANT DOCUMENTS/INFORMATION. INSTEAD Dean Vincent Talbot gave the 2 BARRISTERS IRRELEVANT and innacurate witness statements from the defendants. The witness statements had not been shown to the claimant. Isn't it against the rules of the code of conduct for barristers NOT TO HAVE full knowledge of the facts of the personal injury case before giving counsel opinion

Dear General Council of the Bar,

I would like to know under the f.o.i.

What are the rules of conduct regarding barristers refusing to acknowledge and deal with my complaints ?
Why Duncan Mcnair refuses to deal with my complaint ?

His clerk is trying to brush me opff telling me that I should contact the solicitors Ross Aldridge

Yet it wasnt Ross Aldridge solicitors that wrote that
"IT is a non negligent way to build a door" ! It was Duncan Mcnair !

Duncan Mcnair gave written legal advice on the trip hazard that had caused my injury he said

"It is a non negkligent way tioi build a door" !

Jame s Thornton clerk to DUNCAN MCNAIR is telling me that he won't deal with my complaint !
What about the rules of conduct for barristers ?
What about the BAR STANDARDS BOARD ?
Please regard the faxct that The legal ombudsman have told me that they would deal with my complaint agains Duncan Mcnair

They asked me to write to the barrister and send a copy of his reply but DUNCAN MCNAIR REFUSES TO DEAL WITH MY COMPLAINT !
Thankyou
Yours faithfully,
Maxine McGill

Duncan Mcnair is refusing to deal with my complaint...he wrote, seemingly, in defence of the defendants who manufactured and installed the trip hazard.......
that the trip hazard

"IT is a non negligent way to build a door"
I have wrote to the barristers chambers (3pb) and the clerk is refusing to deal with my complaint!
That is against the rules of conduct for barristers ?

Dear General Council of the Bar,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of General Council of the Bar's handling of my FOI request 'Phillip Hodder and Duncan McNair barristers gave counsel opinions on without the relevant facts being given to them'.

I have contacted DUNCAN MCNAIRS chambers and he refuses to deal with my complaint !

Even though Duncan Mcnair wasn't given relevant information by paralegal Dean Vincent Talbot, on the facts of the personal injury case ........
Duncan Mcnair wrote, seemingly in defence of the defendants , who manufactured and installled the doors and in the process created a trip hazard which had caused me an injury; that this trip hazard
that Duncan Mcnair referred to as a
"NON -NEGLIGENT WAY TO BUILD A DOOR"

Barristers Philip Hodder and Duncan McNair, were asked by Ross Alldridge personal injury solicitors to give Counsel Opinion on the merits of taking a personal injury case to court with insufficient knowledge of the subject on the personal injury case

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of General Council of the Bar's handling of my FOI request 'Phillip Hodder and Duncan McNair barristers gave counsel opinions on without the relevant facts being given to them'.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ]
According to the SOLICITORS REGULATION AUTHORITY, codes of conduct rules solicitors must be familiar with the subject matter of the case before them
Neither Duncan Hector McNair nor Phillip Hodder were familiar with the case .ie they knew nothing about PART M OF THE BUILDING REGULATION ACT WHICH STATES THAT ALL IMPROVEMENT WORK SHOULD BE INSPECTED AND CERTIFIED AND A COPY OF THE CERTIFICATE LEFT WITH THE LOCAL COUNCIL'S BUILDING CONTROL DEPT.

Dear Poli Avramidis,
My request for information has been refused but I dont understand why the Bar council has rules and regulations for barristers when
DUNCAN WENDELL HECTOR MCNAIR AND PHILLIP HODDER both gave counsel opinion on a personal injury case .
They knew nothing about the facts of the case, yet the rules of conduct for barristers state that barristers must be familiar with the facts regarding the case .

When I read the counsel opinion from both barristers it was
EVIDENT THAT NEITHER KNEW THE FACTS OF THE CASE

It is evident that both barristers did not know about statutory obligations of the defendants .....regarding the carrying out of "IMPROVEMENT WORKS"
Yours sincerely,

maxine mcgill
