more bad news
The only solicitor in the whole of Leeds doing legal aid immigration work cannot take on my friend; I suppose this was inevitable, he is very busy and her case is complex. This means finding a solicitor outside Leeds; with the need for her, and possibly some one to support her, having to travel to see them. Her previous solicitor was in Sheffield, a large charitable firm which has recently collapsed, more work and less money, the circle cannot be squared. In medieval Venice all lawyers had to do a fixed amount of pro bono work, but that was the good old days.
