Solicitors from Hell website forced offline
This is frankly a disgrace. This is the same Law Society that took complaints from people with legitimate grievances about the way they had been treated by solicitors and then did nothing? The same Law Society that now proclaims at the top of its homepage 'Supporting Solicitors'?
So now those with a legitimate grievance only have the Legal Ombudsman (Law Society renamed) or the SRA to complain to. It wouldn't be so bad, if the SRA didn't rub peoples faces in it by keeping some of the worst solicitors out there on their panels.
Tugendhat cares not one jot about real justice. He knows that several of the cases before him regarding Solicitors from Hell were associated with people with genuine complaints, but decided that it was far more important to protect the profession which has paid him so handsomely over the years.
This judgement will no doubt bring relief to the many crooked, dishonest solicitors out there and be a disappointment to those that actually follow the SRA's rules. How many solicitors can say that they follow what used to be the SRA's Rule 1 - you shall act with integrity at all times?
