Being represented by a qualified lawyer is no guarantee that advice wil not be faulty and it is often far from adequate that there is a system of 'redress'.

McKenzie friends do a great job in assisting people though difficult litigation, not only providing advice but proper support and they should be applauded for it.

Of course there are problems, especially with them being unfamiliar with procedure. I have seen a good number of people with a very good grasp of the law stumble over the voluminous rules of The White Book.

However the largest number of violations of the overriding objective in my experience are not committed by McKenzie friends but by those who certainly should know better.
