    In my experience, Law Associations may be too permissive with misbehaving lawyers in some cases. However, if a lawyer is withholding your file and refuses to give it to you, a complaint should always succeed, as there is little room left for interpretation.

    Good luck in obtaining the needed documentation.

    Regards

    In my opinion, I would hope Law Associations are not too permissive with misbehaving lawyers as such action can result in tarnishing the profession as a whole.

    Unfortunately, the lawyer in this scenario has Power of Attorney. In November last year a signed written instruction was forwarded by post in order to action a request to transfer funds from a Spanish bank account to a specified UK bank account.

    The funds did not arrive in the UK as had been requested in writing.

    A transfer advice notification, as later received in the post from the Spanish bank, confirmed the funds had been withdrawn from the Spanish bank account but they had been transfered into the company bank account of the lawyer.

    Still, the funds are yet to arrive in the UK bank account.

    However, a pdf copy of a hand written transfer request has been received via an email attachment earlier this week. The transfer request indicates a transfer of funds would be made to the UK bank acount.

    Hopefully the funds will arrive in the UK next week given the coming Easter holiday break.

    The saga continues............

    Earlier today, a visit was made to the premises of the Spanish lawyer.

    During that visit a request was made for an official complaint form - 'Hoja de reclamacion'. The lawyer concerned detailed the 'Hoja de reclamacion' only applies for shops and restaurants and thus refused to provide any type of form in which to write out a formal complaint.

    Question...........Are Spanish Lawyers required to keep official complaints forms on their premises by law?

    In anticipation of such a response an official complaint form / Hoja de reclamacion had already been completed in triplicate together with all necessary and supporting documents. A full copy of the 'Hoja de reclamacion' together with attachments was left on the premises of the Spanish Lawyer.

    The Spanish lawyer concerned was asked to reply, sign and stamp the copy of the 'Hoja de reclamacion' that was to be left on their business premises and refused.

    Another Question....... If by law Spanish lawyers are required to keep official complaint forms / 'Hoja de reclamacion' on their premises and a Spanish lawyer then refuses to respond / complete / accept / sign a completed 'Hoja de reclamacion' form does such an action also break the law?
