I am absolutely desperate for a deaf-friendly solicitor. I really need someone who is deaf-aware and completely professional. I need the solicitor to be comfortable with emails and Skype. Am happy to work through an interpreter or phone captioning too but I really need someone soon. The last two solicitors have given me so much stress. Please help.
Yours is the second request this week for a deaf-aware solicitor. (As we go to press, I have just had a third – so maybe there is a market out there for a deaf specialist solicitors firm).
I don’t have anyone in mind – the one person I did know no longer works in the field. However, recently I was referred to Joseph Frasier Solicitors – although they are worth a look, I note they are neither employment law specialists, nor do they specialise in constructive dismissal and discrimination, which appears to be what most deaf people are looking for. Common requests for solicitors I also get are those experienced in domestic issues (of all kinds). I sincerely hope readers will come back with suggestions of their own – goodness knows we need a much better service!
