  • Good solicitors are doing really well from the rating site http://www.solicitor.info - its an interesting take on the genre

  • The most amazing thing in this case, is the Law Society are clearly trying to stifle free speech and hide solicitors wrong doings and incompetance, and yet they are not in the slightest embarrassed or ashamed about looking dodgy themselves.
    To any fair, right minded, intelligent person their action is purely to protect bad solicitors, and serves no other purpose whatsoever.

  • For Joshua Freedman information the SfH.com site was registered in Oct 2002 and it hit the web prior to March 2003. It’s on the ‘.../preface.htm’ page and near the bottom it states “I do not expect to achieve the notoriety of Wat Tyler but I believe ‘collectively’ through...” maybe these ‘Protest’ sites might end up sitting around the same table (Knights of the Roundtable???).

    Is Des Hudson, LS Chief Exec, guilty the same ‘crime’, if that’s what they are, as Rick Kordowski.
    See a letter written to him on the 9th December 2011

    “but force people to use their real names and explicitly waive their right to confidentiality, publish complaints only with documentary proof the person was actually a client, and give the firm being complained about a full right of public reply”

    Hobson check-out http://www.solicitorsfromhell.me.uk/tos.html last paragraph, all what you ask for but a law firm that refused the offer. The PS mentions Desmond Hudson comments of "fair criticism".

  • I am glad to know now that someone has taken up the struggle against these solicitors. I did make a posting on the Kordowski site and ended up being threatened by my solicitor with High Court action. Much as I would have loved to see my case go the HC, I simply couldn't afford to take the risk. I ended up having to the firm over £1500 to drop the case. Talk about once-bitten! My full support goes to anyone taking this lot on!

  • The closure of the website in Ireland: Rate Your Solicitor.com, was accomplished by twisting and debasing a substantial amount of due process. If the Plaintiff would consent, perhaps an independent assessment of this claim could be conducted.

    My observations of the litigation before Justice Peart would indicate that the court ably demonstrated why the website was necessary.

  • In this time of reviews for everything on the planet, why are we not allowed to review legal professionals? If one has a poor holiday, the hotel is slated all over the net and that is okay, yet legal issues, which can affect a great deal more than a couple of weeks enjoyment, cannot be?
    This is hardly fair, if there is nothing to hide, don't hide it!

    I believe we should all have access to information on how solicitors perform; and there should be better policing of those firms using illegal or underhand tactics to win their cases in Court! Those firms who operate correctly will stand to the end, those that do not would be dealt with appropriately, this should be the case already, why isn't it?

  • Solicitors seem to charge exorbitant fees - why are they so greedy?

    Beware of them losing your case and charging their fees immorally against
    your property -

  • I know of a firm in Bromley which is starting cases against vulnerable defendants, running up bills of costs, and then cheating the victim out of thousands of pounds. There are many good solicitors, and a few very bad firms. It is necessary to have such a website, because the SRA is not an effective regulator.
