Following the increase in coverage to include solicitors, RateMyBarrister has now become LegalBods.com.
So now it is LegalBods that is revolutionizing the legal industry in England and Wales by allowing clients to provide ratings and reviews for individual lawyers and firms for the first time.
Traditional legal directories allow lawyers to carefully create, control and distort their reviews by only accepting references from nominated persons. How many lawyers have anything but 100% positive reviews? How many firms are able to exhibit endless awards?
In this sea of positive reviews prospective clients are unable to really gather which lawyers provide the best services for their clients. Not only does this lead to an unappealing decision making process which is distorted by an inherently biased review system, but it contributes to the negative perception of the legal industry as arcane, closed and arrogant.
Since being founded by barrister William Rees in January 2015, LegalBods have been receiving dozens of client reviews each day. These have ranged from the unequivocally positive, to the downright negative. In particular many clients have highlighted issues such as poor pricing, hidden expenses (for example CFA deductions and ATEs), and a lack of communication throughout. Key issues which require solutions.
Through LegalBods this real world feedback will be used by lawyers and regulators alike to improve the legal industry and by clients to improve how they find lawyers. For the first time clients can make their voice heard and change the legal profession for the better.
