How should this website be viewed?

First lets us look at the most accurate discription by the Law Society's chief executive, Desmond Hudson, he has stated that "fair criticism" is "entirely valid" and that the need for clients to be able to give feedback is "extremely important".

Website that has become the scourge of all lawyers, good and bad

Rick Kordowski remains unapologetic over the website he set up after his experience with lawyers
“I’ve no particular problems with the legal industry as a whole. One of my best friends is a solicitor.” Such magnanimity might dangerously raise the blood pressure of lawyers when they realise the view expressed is from Rick Kordowski, owner of solicitorsfromhell.com, scourge of all dodgy lawyers and perfectly decent ones that have the misfortune of falling into his notoriously non-discriminating net.
Mr Justice Lloyd Jones last month lambasted the hugely controversial website – which seeks to name and shame “corrupt, negligent, dishonest, crooked, fraudulent lawyers” – for comments about a young solicitor that were, he said, “baseless, abusive, malicious and an unwarranted slur on the competency and probity of a young lawyer”. The lawyer in question was awarded £10,000 in damages. The judge was particularly vexed by the site’s £299 “administration charge” that lawyers have pay to get their names taken off the website.
It’s not hard to understand why Kordowski has become the law’s bête noire. The Law Society’s chief executive, Desmond Hudson, says that “fair criticism” is “entirely valid” and that the need for clients to be able to give feedback is “extremely important”.
“However from all we have seen, what this website is about is simply a blanket characterisation of all legal professionals as corrupt, and providing a vehicle for pursuing personal grudges and vendettas.”
