You Have a Complaint Against a Lawyer
EITHER WAY, YOU WILL LOSE
Find a Lawyer?
You generally can only get one lawyer's name from a law society referral and you are stuck with that lawyer. Take it or leave it.
Lawyers subscribing to law society referrals pay a fee to the law society and when it is their turn they get the next referral. There is no checking of skills, experience or suitability for your case.. . . more >>>

Most disbarred lawyers are readmitted to practice law
Most "sentences" imposed on a lawyer are nothing more than a modest fine with years to pay.
Law Societies generally dismiss most of the complaints they get against lawyers.
Your local Law Society will seldom do anything to help consumers with legitimate grievances.
There is a 90% probability that your complaint will be dismissed by the Law Society.
A Law Society exists, not for the protection of consumers from lawyers, but for the protection of lawyers from consumers. They represent lawyers, not you.
They will act only in the most extreme cases against incompetent, or dishonest lawyers. Even then, many disbarred lawyers are quietly reinstated after the dust settles. .. . . more >>>

THE ALLEGATIONS IN THIS BIZARRE 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.
