Key Summary Points:

As per some court rulings and critics, these law firms have been accused of engaging in unethical practices by filing what are commonly referred to as copy and paste cases, where they simply duplicate similar complaints and file them on behalf of their clients without conducting proper due diligence.

This practice has been criticized as a way to generate easy profits for these law firms, rather than serving the interests of the class of people they purport to represent, their clients or promoting genuine accessibility.
