Thanks for your reply.
I cannot see that you had a particularly strong Article 8 argument in order for you to make an application before the 14 years residence requirement - these arguments are usually based upon you having either a wife or partner or children who either have ILR, UK citizenship or EEA member state cititzenship
IN any event your previous application will not prejudice your new application based upon 14 year residence unless your previous application contained anything which the UKBA viewed as potentially deceptive. You must make sure that your new application does not contain any thing which contradicts or conflicts with your previous application. If it doesn't and you are able to prove the length of your stay here without leave to remain then you will be granted ILR.
I would suggest that you ask for your file from your solicitors and take this to a new firm you instruct after having met the new solicitor and felt comfortable with them. You can find solicitors via:-
