Scots Lawyer

Good people
I need a Scots lawyer fast. I have been let down by 3 already, 2 have agreed to act on my behalf but are too "busy". I need a "lay executor" examined. Please help, I live in Cornwall , I am prepared to send all documentation, my preferred area was Dumfires but this has only produced negative results. I have an understanding of the law, I just need someone to act on my behalf. Please help.
 
I've used Low, Beaton & Richmond of Glasgow for wills and executry in the past and they've been very good.

Bang on, I was not exspecting the obstruction before.

Solicitors in Scotland and our law is not like theirs (yours)
Are we talking about child custody here?
If that's the case
You can expect all favorable décisions for the mother
Quite right too and what ever the flaws
Thanks . Just need a scots lawyer to act on my behalf and not dump out in 3 weeks.

Not so relevant. Just need a Law firm to take some action on my behalf.
 
Scots law?

Isn't that all trial by combat and throwing chicken guts at the wall?

Do you mean someone who happens to have been nominated as an executor with no background or experience, or do you mean someone who is not a lawyer but is acting in a professional capacity? Either way, they will be already acting with the oversight of a law firm, probably one of those in the link I gave. With lawyers being as thick as thieves, you might want to use a firm from outside the immediate area to avoid any risk of a conflict of interests.

Done, application in with a Plymouth Office regulated by Scots law tomorrow. Just wish those vimbergs who said they would act on my behalf had been a bit more honest with their intentions earlier. I will publicise their details later.

No, that's English law. Up here we demand corroboration of evidence, had a Procurator Fiscal long before PACE and the CPS, juries are fifteen not twelve, and we've got the "Not Proven" verdict for cases where the jury decides "we know they're guilty, but the prosecution couldn't prove it".

Oh, and we don't do gazumping, so house purchasing isn't quite such a nightmare.

Tytus, same here! I've been let down by two already! Like, for real now, what the heck is going on? I feel like this country is running out of attorneys who know how to conduct themselves and understand what professional behavior means.
My solicitor friends would occasionally tell us of the potential clients who would arrive in their offices appearing sane and reasonable, but then try to engage them in an attempt to sue Her Majesty, because they believed they were owed the Trident submarine fleet (or similar).

I also know of someone who was given the minimum from his parents' wills (because he was such an arse towards them) but has thrown his teddy out of the pram as a result, and spent months telling everyone that his sister is a witch, he's been robbed, it's all a con, his solicitor was incompetent / was in on the scam, etc, etc.

Yes, there are a few shysters and incompetents. And there are also small firms where the partners are trying to cover everything from family cases to tax to house sales - and doing OK at each, but not an expert in yours. If you can, try a larger firm with someone who specialises in your area of interest.

If you still have problems, ask yourself whether you actually listen to what the solicitors say - because they're the lawyers, not you. If they say "no chance", they probably mean it, and a week on google doesn't mean you know best.

Unfortunately, the same people who are convinced that they're experts on immunology and vaccination (after listening to some crap on Facebook) are also likely to believe they're legal experts, and then complain about "unprofessional behaviour". Which are you?
