legal advice

Lewis and I are desperately looking for legal advice as his dla claim has been through 1 tribunal where a domiciliary was granted and then 2 tribunals at home (1 decision was overturned). We appealed the decision and have been granted the right to take it to the upper tribunal which looks at points of law.  
This is where we're stuck. We have tried the law society, phoned over 35 solicitors from their site who all say they no longer do welfare benefits work.we have tried the  CAB who say they can't help . We have tried the disability law service who say they're snowed under and can't help. We may have found a barrister who would take the case but he can't take it directly from us but can take a referral from the bar pro bono unit. We can't refer ourselves to the bar pro bno unit.....and so we go to around. The barrister suggest s the royal courts of justice CAB but they don't answer the phone.  Lewis has spent over 4 hours listening to it ringing.  He also suggested our mp can refer it but guess what.  No answer.  Lewis is currently emailing him.
We even tried Leigh Day as they understand latex allergy but they couldn't help either.  
We have 3 weeks left time wise and are so frustrated that we can't get the legal advice we need.  We thought everyone had the right to legal advice but it seems that is not the case.  
 
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, we would appreciate it.  
 
Thanks

Forgot to add we have also tried community law Centres . They won't help.  
We are not entitled to legal aid because I work but even when paying,  can't find anyone who will help.

I am wondering if you have a chat with the court clerk where the upper tribunal is being held as they may know someone in your area who has the necessary expertise.  It might also be worth asking the clerk if you are struggling to get representation what the procedure would be if you need to get a time extension.
