CanLaw Lawyer Referral Service

Canada Trusts CanLaw -- Online Since 1996

WARNING: Avoid Law Society Referral Services.

THE LAW SOCIETY of ONTARIO REFERRAL SERVICES USUALLY GIVE YOU THE NEXT LAWYER ON THE LIST REGARDLESS OF SUITABILITY.  THAT IS NOT WHAT A REFERRAL SERVICE SHOULD DO. BE WARNED.

 

CANLAW GIVES YOU THE CHOICE OF SEVERAL LAWYERS WHO ARE QUALIFIED FOR YOUR CASE

Law societies do not protect cionsumers from lawyers, they protect lawyers from consumersThe Law Society of Ontario is one of the worst bullies attacking us because we cost them a huge amount of fees charged to people seeking referrals. We have never charged for referrals and never will. Beware of the LSO (LSUC).  CanLaw filed a defamation suit against the LSO (LSUC). It was a waste of time. Might Not Right, Prevailed.

Generally when you call a law society referral service, you get the next lawyer on the list based on where you live. Take it or Leave it. They will only give you one name and that even could be a disbarred lawyer who has been reinstated or a lawyer who has stolen vast sums of money or worse. Yes, law societies even reinstate disbarred lawyers.

 

The Law Society of BC says that law society referrals are a conflict of interest and so did not offer one until recently  Strangely they started offering referrals recently despite their belief that it is a conflict of interest.

 

Other law societies, especially the LAW SOCIETY OF ONTARIO , are not so open.

LET MIGHT PREVAIL

IS THE

LAW SOCIETY OF ONTARIO

 STEALING YOUR MONEY?

When you give money to a lawyer to hold for you or use in a transaction,. possibly even the retainer you provide,, the lawyer deposits it in a trust account which should earn interest. That interest belongs to you, no one else, since it was earned on your money.

The Law Society of Ontario (LSO (LSUC)) forces their lawyers to send them the interest earned on client funds held in the lawyers' trust accounts.

That interest money belongs to you, the client, not to the lawyer or the Law Society.

According to the LSO (LSUC)'s own accounting, this theft of nickels and dimes from clients like you, amounts to an average total of some $3 million dollars ($3,000,000.00) a year.

Demand that your lawyer pay your earned interest money to you!

SO STOP AND THINK.

The LSO (LSUC) will not protect or help you if you have a problem with a lawyer. They protect the lawyer, not you.

 

Lawyer Regulation

 

The Law Society of Ontario governs in its own interest by maintaining and strengthening an independent legal profession. It protects lawyers from the public

 

All Law Societies are basically very powerful unions for lawyers and treat the public with disdain and contempt.

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.
