First Since 1996
THE LAW SOCIETY OF THE YUKON
You are just another "non-lawyer" and law societies looks down on non lawyers.
Do not forget this.
HOW TO DEAL WITH THE
LAW SOCIETY OF THE YUKON
RETAINING A LAWYER WARNING: YUKON LAW SOCIETY REFERRALS ARE NOT WHAT YOU EXPECT:
Yukon Law Society referrals are based on a bored 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.
DON'T GAMBLE WITH THE LAW SOCIETY
