Look whos Spending Mike Gavin's Grants

1. Allowed confusion to arise in relation to the exact disbursement of funds held by him;
2. Grossly delayed, without reasonable explanation, the administration of the estate, the deceased person having died in 2005 some ten years ago;
3. Showed a complete disregard for the interests of the beneficiaries, whom Mr. Marren, Solicitor, knew to be elderly, and by his conduct is depriving two of the beneficiaries, of the enjoyment of their share in the estate;
4. Provided an inadequate professional service and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor. There is no good reason why Mr Marren did not “bite the bullet” and pay over the full €82,500 when he received the funds way back on 27th of May 2013.
5. Being reluctant to resolve the issue in isolation to the rest of the Estate;
6. Not provided the detailed bill of costs to include a detailed breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at. The legal and auctioneering fees are excessive, and Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney should not be charged for same as the beneficiaries on the other side agreed to waive them. 05/07/13 Marren to Gavin and Linney enclosing copy letter dated 3rd of July, 2013 from T & N McLynn;
7. Breached the following regulation of the solicitors’ account regulations, 2001: • Regulation 4(2): by failing without delay to pay monies held or controlled by them in respect of outlays not yet disbursed into client account and failing to treat such monies in all respects as client money;
8. Breached the following regulation of the solicitors’ account regulations, 2001: Regulation 5: by holding monies to which they were beneficially entitled in a client account for longer than three months in respect of outlays already disbursed, or which should have been the subject matter of a bill of costs furnished to the client concerned;
9. Brought the solicitors profession into disrepute;
10. Denied Michael Gavin a share in the farming profits, to the extent that Michael Gavin was working for nothing over the 9 years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013;
11. Provided an inadequate professional service and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor with regards to the explanation he provides to explain how he arrived at his decision to award the moneys received from the sale of Pat Gavin’s livestock together with the Gross payments received from the Department of Agriculture without deducting any expense for the minding, looking after, feeding and caring for the animals for the nine years from 2005 to 2014;
12. Delayed making the decision regarding Michael Gavin’s share in the farming profits and rightful share of the grant monies received from the Department of Agriculture until the very end with the draft distribution account that contained countless errors on 18th September, 2014. Michael Gavin was lied to and led to believe that he would be refunded at closing by some of the beneficiaries. Why did Mr. Marren make a decision around March 2013 to accept Michael Gavin’s claim to owning half the livestock and all the sheep? But yet for no logical reason refuses to award him the net amount €116,789.11 due to him out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing his ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, which was also sent to Mr. Marren, Solicitor, on the 5th of December, 2015 for his consideration. There is no good reason why he took advantage of Michael Gavin’s good nature and delayed his decision in this matter until the end;
13. Squandered the Estate assets by hiring an additional accountant against his wishes at a cost of €8,751.45;
14. Accounting mistakes and lack of clarity;
15. Forced elderly Michael Gavin and widowed sister Eileen Linney to incur additional unnecessary expenses in drafting documents and letters time and time again to prove their claim;
16. Not furnished a detailed statement of all the legal costs to his client. Under Sectio
