Solicitor overcharged client

An immigration solicitor told a client an advocate’s fee was five times higher than it really was and pocketed the difference in an “appalling case” highlighted by a member of human rights organisation Justice’s working party on immigration and appeals.

The report states that the working party member’s experience is “an extreme but far from isolated example”.
