Dear Mr Wotton
Concerning a complaint I have made against Mr Desmond Hudson
In the first instance I sent my complaint to Adam Sampson, Legal Ombudsman, and his office rang me stating my complaint should be sent to Chancery Lane, I duly filled in the enquiry form on the LS website and receive a reply from Rebecca West, Head of Private Office, stating "Please may I request further details of the nature of your complaint. I would be grateful if you could send this to me as soon as possible." I sent my complaint and all associated documents on 17 January.
Ms West responded on the 1 February (enclosed) and I am amazed just how my complaint has been handled. I have enclosed my reply to Ms West and hopefully you will reply and explain how Chancery Lane 'complaint handling' is or should be carried out.
In the past the LS complaint handling has been 'woeful' and my own experience since 1999 bears this out. At the bottom of the last page of my complaint I sent to Chancery Lane, which I have enclosed, I comment: -
It will be interesting to see what road the LS takes against its own member who has, through careless actions, accused an innocent party of the crimes of some other person which ended with derogatory comments about me being plastered all over the Internet."
this fiasco of how my complaint concerning Desmond Hudson has been handled
by Ms West it shows the LS's 'Protection Racket' is alive and well.
Adam Sampson states he is independent and doesn't take sides but still
with the same old 'Paymasters' the Law Society of course. A few years
down the road the wheels will fall off his wagon and we will hear it
all again as we have in the past. Read 'Rocky the Rottweiler'
has been renamed 'Fido': - http://www.solicitorsfromhell.com/zm3.htm#fido
does the Law Society have on their hands now?? Clearly Desmond Hudson
has created a 'Run-away-Train' with himself and the LS on board that
is out of control with 'Protest' websites springing-up like Mushrooms.
What road will you take, protect yourself, protect the LS, defend Desmond
Hudson or drop the Portcullis, shore-up Chancery Lane Fortress walls
or have a laugh and joke at the next 'Lodge' meeting! On the other hand
will you send in the Rottweiler, 'Mad Dog Des' to savage me as you had
him do to Rick Kordowski? Richard Hegarty who at the time was Chair
of the Compliance Board made an evening threatening 'phone call to me,
which didn't work, then instructed Willoughby & Partners to take
action against me and the best they could do was to threaten my Hosting
may not like my website or its, possibly in your opinion, derogatory
name "solicitorsfromhell.com" which was the first protest
website on the Internet in 2002 brought about by the inadequacies of
a law firm and the determination of a complaints procedure determined
to protect their members. After the law firm, Thomas Boyd Whyte, got
so confused by what was published on the www caused by Desmond Hudson's
'lack of care' they sent me threatening letters and on the 14 December
2011 I gave TBW the option of writing
a review of my website which I would publish on my web pages I also
gave Desmond Hudson the option of giving his views but both turned me
down. See: -
I don't apologise for any of my comments as Desmond Hudson and now the LS thinks it is acceptable for derogatory comments against an innocent person to be plastered all over the www caused by Desmond Hudson's 'carelessness', why should I be concerned with my own comments that I will be publishing on the www.
This letter is published at: - www.legal-complaints.com/john-wotton-ls-president.htm with all links live for ease of use, will you read it, I doubt it which would just show the egotism of the Law Society members.
cannot close this letter without commenting on the LS's rules for in-house
law firms: -
Complaints handling IB(1.22)
'having a written complaints procedure which... How the hell can you preach to law firms when at Chancery Lane the heart of the LS you haven't got a clue on 'Complaints handling'.
