Isn't the issue here that ridiculous hourly rates are being put into CFAs that no lay person will ever read to retrospectively justify taking 25% of the clients damages as a standard on every single case?

On the of-fchance the client questions it (as they clearly have done here) the solicitor says 'sorry mate, you signed up to £250 an hour - you pretty much signed the cash over.'

No client is going to agree to £250 an hour to run a whiplash case for them if they know the going rate for that type of work is a maximum of £111.

Do you think JC&A or indeed any firm doing this type of work have ever sat down with a client and obtained their informed consent to that?
