In June this year I asked "why does Solicitors from Hell" exist? That post received a comment today from pirate which said, "And back again solicitorsfromhell.net".
I thought this would happen and that the Law Society's victory in the courts would be pyrrhic. There was a twitter exchange that suggested the legal profession shouldn't be executing Kordowski but dealing with the complaints. We also said the website will come in some form, maybe offshore. Well here it is and this is what it says:
SolicitorsFromHell.net is the successor in title to Rick Kordowski’s SolicitorsFromHell.co.ukI think we're in for an interesting ride on this. I shall be very curious to see how the Law Society reacts. I have a feeling that Solicitors from Hell has mutated into the hydra and no matter how many sites the Law Society tries to close it will keep returning to haunt them.
Normal service has resumed under new owners. We believe that Kordowski’s legacy must be preserved and continued in this new format. By way of paying tribute to Kordowski we are reproducing the best segments from SolicitorsFromHell.co.uk, particularly past editorials.
To those of you who want to use the official channels of complaint dealing with solicitors’ conduct being the Legal Ombudsman or the Solicitors Regulation Authority then as a first port of call we advise you to do so. This site caters for the disenfranchised legal consumer; in other words, those members of the public who are convinced the official route has not or will not serve their needs or the justice of their grievance.
