The internet is both a wonder and a nuisance. Over the past few months, a flurry of New Hampshire attorneys and law firms have been “one-star” reviews on Google regarding the quality of their service. Some of the reviews are blank like ours, but often the reviews are filled with diatribes calling the firm “backward”, “hillbillies”, or just plain “stupid”.

It is our belief that these reviews are possibly being left by a disgruntled client of a New Hampshire law firm at some point in time, or worse yet, a competing law firm in New Hampshire. This person is creating several “burner” accounts that fit a similar profile described above that either adopt nonsensical names or take the names of other New Hampshire attorneys.

The following profiles are just one of numerous, similar profiles:,-155.0579163,3z?hl=en-US,-71.4291695,10z?hl=en-US,-70.8268523,9z?hl=en-US,-71.2315895,15z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m3!8m2!3m1!1e1?hl=en-US,-71.3747556,9z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m3!8m2!3m1!1e1?hl=en-US,-71.3659376,10z?hl=en-US,-71.2994511,10z?hl=en-US

We could continue listing the countless burner accounts, but we believe you readers will get the point. We are more than willing to accept and address any true and honest criticism; however, we feel compelled to answer false criticism. We hope this serves as a cautionary tale of doing your research on the internet.

If you face false criticism, you can seek an injunction and order to have the reviews taken down if they are defamatory in nature.
