Forum Support Dave Hounddriver Posted February 21, 2012 Forum Support Posted February 21, 2012 If you have used a lawyer in the Philippines I would be curious to know what you thought of the result. My own experience, and that of people I know personally is that the lawyers are not much help here and the advice they give sounds good, but the instant you get into trouble following that advice, they just change the advice.This topic was prompted by this post: As for "your only legal remedy", if I am in a situation that requires legal advice I'll spring for a lawyer. Not trying to be smart but do you have any personal knowledge or experience of foreigners in the Philippines getting satisfaction or 'legal remedy' through use of a lawyer?I personally know many who have used lawyers. Many who have got advice from lawyers. Many who have had judgments in their favor. But I do not, personally, know one person who has actually won a case *and* got more financial compensation as a result of using a lawyer in the Philippines than he would have without the lawyers 'help'. My experience is that the law here is just so much lip service. But this is a new topic so I am going to move my post. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
