JudicalCheck.com Causes Controversy in Legal Community

Share Article

JudicialCheck an online website for the legal community is being threatened with shutdown by attorneys who are afraid their discipline records and incompetence will be exposed. JudicialCheck.com is a powerful online tool exclusively for the legal profession where members can post honest reviews of attorneys and judges and access the latest information available about State Bar disciplinary actions.

Recently, JudicalCheck.com has been threatened with lawsuits by attorneys who have been reviewed by their peers. The complaining attorneys are apparently reading for the first time the “truth” about how their colleagues perceive them. One lawyer in San Mateo, California, after reading a negative review about himself decided that rather than trying to address the factual problems that were the root of his negative rating, it would be easier to threaten to sue and shut down JudicialCheck.com. This is not the first time that JudicialCheck.com has been threatened by lawyers unhappy with having such information readily available.

“Although we have been threatened many times, JudicialCheck.com will continue to operate,” commented Richard Oberreiter, a JudicialCheck co-founder, “the information found on JudicialCheck.com is a valuable tool for law professionals as they can research themselves and others and find out what people really think of them. We will not shut it down because some attorneys don’t like negative feedback.”

Before JudicialCheck.com the only way to find out about another attorney or judge was through ineffective word-of-mouth, outdated print publications and fluff pieces in local legal newspapers. With JudicialCheck.com any licensed legal professional can find out about their adversaries and be prepared in advance.
