The lawyers trying to give deaf people a hearing

I thought you might like to have a read of this article, to which I provide some comments.

The lawyers trying to give deaf people a hearing | Law | guardian.co.uk.

I think it’s been very well written and does explain the situation Deaf people face when trying to access legal advice services.

    rwilks A shame, as deaf/disabled severely under-represented in legal profession, IMO.

    Like, how much time do YOU spend in Wales representing deaf here ? I thought you worked in England !

    Actually, FYI, I’m based in Cardiff full time with regular trips to London. I have and do advise Deaf people who live in Wales.

    Read Byddar Cymmru and see what is really happening here ! Deaf haven’t got off their arse in 5 years here. You should be suing the ass off the Senedd for rights violations….

    MM, I can’t sue the Senedd off my own bat. I need clients with real cases to be able to do so.
