Exploitation by divorce solicitors sets trap for public Wednesday 10 October 2007 PDF Print Bournemouth woman takes action against divorce solicitors in an effort to put an end to the exploitation of thousands of people each year at the hands of firms of divorce solicitors, who charge what they like for services which do little more than prolong disputes and generate antagonism, resulting in mountains of unnecessary correspondence and time wasting. The structure of legal services is set to change. After a long period of review, a bill currently going through parliament will finally change the way legal firms operate. But will this be enough to prevent consumers from suffering at the hands of divorce solicitors at a time in their lives when they are most vulnerable? The Divorce Solicitor Trap thinks not. A new website is being launched which sounds alarm bells about the way divorce solicitors are still permitted to operate. An on-line petition asking the government to take stronger action is being reinforced on the streets, with hundreds signing up to prevent the fiasco of exploitation. Members of the public are being asked to enter their solicitor horror stories into the website's Name and Shame database, so that others can be warned, or to lend their support to the site by signing a petition on line. The site, http://www.divorce-solicitor-trap.co.uk goes live on October 8th and the website team will be at the West Quay shopping centre in Southampton on Thursday October 11th between 12 and 3pm, talking to people, distributing brochures and taking petitions. It's time to stop paying.
