Exclusive: Law firm salesman in outstanding expletive Facebook meltdown
25 August 2017
Thanks to the reader who alerted RollOnFriday to the existence of Alan Haywood.
Haywood's day job is running the improbably named www.trendykidzuk.co.uk, a website for children's clothes, toys and accessories. But he also tries to sell the services of Reece Law LLP, an enterprising group of paralegals providing inexpensive advice. Its webpage

RollOnFriday contacted the owner of Reece Law, who clearly felt it appropriate to distance himself from Haywood. In a statement Ryan Reece said that "Mr Haywood is a Lay Client of Reece Law LLP and is in no way a professional affiliate of the Practice. Reece Law LLP offer all clients the opportunity to earn a 10% rate of commission if they introduce a friend who then instructs us to act as their Litigation Friend. The comments made by Mr Haywood are in no way to be construed as views or opinions of the Practice as they go against our Moral and Ethical practices. We have spoken to Mr Haywood regarding his communication and have made it very clear that such language is not acceptable
