Rate Your Solicitor No More

An Irish website RateYourSolicitor.com, which aims to let clients find and rate solicitors has received an Irish High Court injunction to remove defamatory material about one such rated solicitor. The site is hosted by a US provider, gmax.net, which has reportedly been served notice by lawyers acting for the defamed solicitor.

Has / had anyone actually seen or used this website before its closure? Turns out that GoDaddy, as the domain registrar were challenged from Ireland to get the domain locked for access. Interesting…

Google’s search listing…

RateYourSolicitor.com enables people in Ireland to find quality legal representation by showing the best and worst solicitors in each county.

With the site now removed (or at least you couldn’t access it this morning anyway), here’s a link to Google’s cache of RateYourSolicitor.com.

For anyone who is interested, the site is a sister site of ‘Victims Of The Legal Profession Society’… also known as CrookedLawyers.com.

    I think you’ll find that it did. Not long into its first iteration the site was plagued with bad remarks about teachers and school staff…. seriously bad stuff….. bit of a different story around that site now.
