RETAINING A LAWYER WARNING: LAW SOCIETY REFERRALS ARE NOT WHAT YOU EXPECT:
Law Society of the Northwest Territories referrals are based on a bored, underpaid, under trained telephone, clerk asking you where you want a lawyer. She then looks at her list and takes the name of the next lawyer whose turn has come up.
There is no checking of skills, suitability or experience. Lawyers using law societies referrals pay a fee and when it is their turn they get the referral. The system stinks.

DID YOU KNOW?
Most disbarred lawyers are readmitted to practice law after the dust settles.
Most "sentences" imposed on a lawyer are nothing more than a modest fine with years to pay.
The Law Society of the Northwest Territories under authority of the Legal Profession Act, investigates all formal complaints regarding the conduct of lawyers practising in the Territory.
If warranted, complaints may be heard by a committee of inquiry or sole inquirer, who then decides on the outcome of the complaint.
Matters proceeding to inquiry are unproven allegations, which have not yet been the subject of a hearing to determine validity.
Results of hearings and regulatory notices on the Law Society of the Northwest Territories website are displayed for a period of two years.

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.
