Don’t get ripped off!

I recently came across an interesting web site that I want to share with you. It’s called Ripoff Report .com.

A client called me the other day and wanted me to help her find a new (a good) lawyer.  I was impressed by all the research she had done, including a report she found about her lawyer on the Ripoff Report. Unfortunately for her, the information in the report confirmed her suspicion that she had the wrong lawyer. She wished she had done her research before she hired the lawyer.

I looked at the Ripoff Report web site and found the information in it to be very helpful, although at times it was a little bit cumbersome to navigate. If you find a report on what or who you are looking for, the information could be a life saver.

The Ripoff Report calls itself a worldwide consumer reporting web site which is written by consumers, for consumers, to document complaints about companies and individuals.  If you want to use it specifically to find information about a lawyer,  go to the “Advanced Search” (right below the search box) and limit your search to Los Angeles, or whatever city your lawyer is located in. Hopefully you won’t find the name of your lawyer in the Ripoff Report!

I thought I would bring this web site to your attention because it is a great resource to have to help you avoid the many scams that are out there (not to mention the creepy lawyers!) I bookmarked it. If you have your own personal injury lawyer “nightmare story”, please share it with me so I can help warn everyone else!
