  • Did someone pay £200 for every solicitor listed to cover Kordowski's "administrative costs"?

    I predict there will be about 100 posts below this one. I also predict someone will use the line "99% of solicitors give the rest a bad name".

  • There's no longer any need for such a website now that the SRA have included same such practice in THEIR remit.

    Only this time its doubtful a maligned solicitor will be able to sue

  • I'm really glad to see this site has been taken offline. I have a friend (lawyer) who got put on that website. He is one of the nicest and most gentle people I have ever met, and yet someone wrote a review claiming he was abusive. That just goes to show how the site cannot be trusted and how some people just have an axe to grind.

  • What a pity I only found out about this site last night. I could not fully access it but could see that some lawyers who are trying to get charge of the conveyancing of my expensive house are mentioned on a couple of occasions. It might be crap of course, but I have some reason to doubt it. I have asked this be posted anonymously as I would not wish to be on the end of a lawsuit! 50% of solicitors give the rest a bad name, the 50% being based on a sample of 4.

  • 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?

  • As a litigation lawyer I can see why people are often aggrieved after going to law. I think the mistake many complainants make is that they think the law must be able to address their problem precisely in the way they think is right - without realising their opponent has exactly the same thought process. Ultimately, there will be a solicitor caught in the middle.

  • The point about this particular site is that it lacked credibility. You could not see who made the complaint and there was nowhere to be able to at least attempt to address/resolve it. You only had one side of the story. And then he charged £200 for the complaint to be removed, oh come on! Im sure even lawyers would welcome a higher quality site where people could share experiences, which might in turn help to drive up standards of client service across the profession.
