An Annual Report of the BC Law Society stated:
HISTORY OF COMPLAINTS AGAINST BC LAWYERS
There are about 8330 practicing lawyer/members of the British Columbia Law Society
Complaints against BC lawyers run about 1500 a year.
This is indicative of a general dissatisfaction with the service being provided. In private industry, complaint levels this high would cause heads to roll.
However, of all the complaints received only about ten percent will ever get as far as a discipline hearing in British Columbia.
The rest will be dismissed or closed at the preliminary stages

Law Society Cautions Against Use of Canadian Lawyers Index
THE ALLEGATIONS IN THIS BIZARRE DEFAMATORY JUNE 2004 ATTACK ARE NOT TRUE.
CanLaw is proudly independent and NOT AFFILIATED IN ANY WAY WITH ANY LAW SOCIETY ANYWHERE.
Asking a law society to help is like asking a snake not to bite you.
We are NOT lawyers. We caution all consumers to be very careful in dealing with any Law Society since they represent lawyers only. They do not represent you the client. CanLaw provides legal information and resources. CanLaw never provides legal advice.
