My friend, who is originally from Mindanao, had to come here to Manila to find a way to have her father re-instated to police service and/or to allow him to receive compensation in some form (like for retirement, but not really because he was terminated).
The lawyer who failed them (after having enriched himself with hundreds of thousands of pesos) found out about the family's effort and has suddenly re-appeared to offer his so-called legal expertise. To date, he has been asking for P 5,000(!) for "filing fees". He isn't even based in Metro Manila, he's also from Mindanao.
Can anyone suggest where they can go for help?
What is the proper way of doing this and who can they reach out to?
Thanks in advance!
