  • So...
    "The irrecoverable cost of such litigation is prohibitive for many firms and lawyers.”
    I have a listing on Rick's site about a firm who would be incapable of having it removed through litigation - NOT because the cost is "prohibitative" - but because what I say about them is TRUE and the firm KNOWS that I can prove every word.
    This firm on numerous occasions signed false declarations on bills which is tantamount to criminal fraud ... the SRA refuses to act even at the request of my MP - it seems the Law Society is intent on protecting these criminals further by preventing me from telling the TRUTH which is undeniably in the public interest.
    This action against Mr. Kordowski is surely the action of a group of absolute cowards.
    I wonder how long this (true) comment will be allowed to survive on this web site?

  • I read that the Legal Ombudsman, set up to consider complaints against solicitors, had operating costs of £8.3million in the first 6 months of its short existence and rejected 90% of complaints.
    Why not set aside, out of the grant to the Legal Ombudsman, a sum of say £1 million per annum to pay for the appointment of legal professionals to help administer Rick Kordowski's Solicitors from Hell website? A small staff will be of enormous benefit to this much needed independent service which will then be seen by the legal profession as a serious forum for complaints.
    The Law Society is, under the competiton laws, obliged to allow any number of solicitors to set up in practice. So it should not object to the formation of a competing complaints procedure which clearly has the support of the public. With a minimum amount of funding Solicitors from Hell can adapt and progress to the benefit of its users.

  • Rick Kordowski can only improve the legal system, the Law Society have failed.

  • Whilst I agree that there must be a more open and accountable way to 'complain' about sub-standard service, I take offence to the tone of the site. It seems to suggest that no lawyer is trustworthy.. This just feeds into the suspicion against the profession.
    Are we but better paid traffic wardens in the public's eyes? (I hasten to add that I have nothing against traffic wardens!)

  • I have seen articles published on this sight about nothing other than a solicitor being rude, seeing a solicitor in a club at 1am and even their dress sense! Please explain why these details are relevant to how a solicitor performs in practice? Furthermore, if the only objective of this website is to improve the quality within the legal profession, why does Mr K accept hundreds of pounds in return for removing posts about solicitors and firms?
    Yes, solicitors should be held accountable. but this site is not the correct forum for doing so. The law society needs to step up and provide a just platform for voices to be heard.

    "I take offence to the tone of the site. It seems to suggest that no lawyer is trustworthy.. This just feeds into the suspicion against the profession. "
    And the profession's representative body attemtping to shutter the site just makes the whole profession look open, accountable and willing to take criticism and challenges doesn't it?
    Maybe the Law Society will open an alternative site - "Solicitors From Heaven" - where the public can leave glowing testimonials...

  • I’ve had a look and there must be near on 1000 posts. I agree with Spenser Poultney. They cannot all be false.
    Feels like a typical corporate cover up to me!
