The Pittadjis Law Firm have continually failed to return my money.
Pambos Pittas (External Associate) gave us an illegal post-dated cheque for the full amount owing in the beginning of October 2016. It was stopped on the 2 November. He then paid less than half of what was owing (cash) into our account on the 6th February, and on the 6th March there was a bank transfer made by Fotos Pittadjis which was a third of the remaining amount owing.
I have had many emails from Fotos promising to pay the remaining amount, but none of them have materialised. The emails he sent were on the lines of "you will be paid next month", "next week" "soon", "very soon" the latter was sent on the 4th May. since then - nothing. Pambos has now appeared to have blocked my emails as has Mr. George in the same company.
Questions -
1. Is there such a thing as a Governing Body for solicitors similar in nature to the General Medical Council we have in the UK?
2. Would the police really be interested in taking on the case for an English person?
3. Can anyone suggest a positive step forward, bearing in mind that we are not returning to Cyprus until October?
Thanks,
Alan

A check to see if any of them are British trained and members of any of the UK legal societies such as The Law Society. If they are it might assist your case to take it up with the UK authorities.

1) The Cyprus Bar Association - though how effective and how long it takes
is often an issue:

2) The Police will investigate a case if a crime has been committed - it
may well be a civil matter I am not sure.

3) If they won't return the money then probably the only other option is
to take legal action against them. I am not sure what amount we are
talking about but there is a possibility that The European Small Claims
procedure might be an option - though that covers claims up to 2000.

HTH

Cheers
