Hi,


I wondered if anybody might be able to recommend somewhere I could go for free legal advice. I have tried my CAB and I'm waiting for them to return my phone call, but is there anywhere else?

After Student Finance have messed me around again, potentially jeopardising my part time application, I would like some advice about whether I have a case to take them to court. I don't really want to go down the no win no fee route because I want advice about the case, rather than having to proceed.

Thanks, but as I said in my post I don't want to go to them for advice. As I understand it they charge for advice, but if you go to court with them and win they pay the money back.:rolleyes:

Are you sure they can't tempt you?

Have you spoken your Students Union? They usually have a financial advisor. They could probably also point you in the direction of local lawyers who deal with these issues.

Thanks, sadly I don't have one. Technically I'm in between universities with a few years gap.

Ah, ok, well Citizen's Advice are probably the best people then. Do they do a local drop in which would save you waiting for them to get back to them?
Also, have you tried Resolver? It's a new, free online complaints service: http://www.resolver.co.uk/companies/...any-complaints
I don't know anyone who has used it yet but their web site looks quite good.

Thanks, I'll have a look. Sadly they only seem to do it by appointment. There's no massive rush, but after they messed up again today I thought it might not be a bad idea to get some advice.
