The cheques are in the post...

Solicitors all over the country have been burning the midnight oil and writing cheques to refund clients for overcharging according to today's Liveline. The Law Society has begun the enquiry and they are receiving phone calls. The Director General of the Law Society is turning up at openings of survivors groups and appearing all over the media.
Whether claimants who are refunded by their solicitors will continue to make complaints is unclear. However some of the solicitors involved are being embarrassed into refunding the overcharges - and also adding interest and payment for the distress they have caused.
Still the workings of the Residential Institutions Redress Board go unchallenged, their secrecy and the demands of confidentiality of the claimants continue. The stresses of those still to appear and who have appeared before the board will continue.
