Not Yet Posted September 16, 2015 Report Share Posted September 16, 2015 (edited) I am not drunk. The Law Society of Upper Canada is NOT a government entity. They are a private corporation. For years they have hidden the criminal acts of their members who pay hefty annual fees (money) for membership. Some call this "protection money". If you file a complaint against a lawyer with the Law Society you are warned not to discuss the complaint with any third party "including the police". Well, if your lawyer committed an assault, rape, extortion, grand theft, or some other crime, why shouldn't you notify the police? According to the police, you will forfeit your rights to mediation if you call in the cops! I call BULLSHIT on the LSUC. If you get ripped off or cheated by a Canadian lawyer, do not waste your time with the Law Society in Canada - file a police report. As you will see in the below links, the Law Society protects its members from public exposure and media scrutiny (because members pay annual dues to the Law Society that total in the millions). The Law Societies in Canada admitted publicly that less than 20% of the complaints they receive are even investigated, and less than 2% of the lawyers are punished in any way. In truth they are not protecting the public from bad lawyers, they are protecting the lawyers from the public. I did not make up these stories here that are shocking... http://projects.thestar.com/broken-trust/ http://www.canlaw.com/law-society/problem.html#.Vfe0U8uwrIU http://www.lawtimesnews.com/200511281146/headline-news/complainants-encouraged-to-contact-police http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...lleged-lawyer-misconduct-kept-quiet-1.2764948 https://lawsocietyofcanada.wordpress.com/tag/complaints/ http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/201...urs_questions_about_law_society_policies.html http://ethicsincanada.com/2015/06/1...-what-we-dont-know-and-why-this-is-a-problem/ http://www.realscam.com/f16/scam-al...our-complaint-against-dishonest-lawyers-4261/ http://lawsocietyofuppercanada.worpress.com http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...lleged-lawyer-misconduct-kept-quiet-1.2764948 http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?...onceals-Crimes-And-Complaints-Against-Lawyers Where there is this much smoke there is surely fire my friends. In this actual complaint filed with the law society, take note that the victim gave overwhelming evidence including a witness list of 19 people, yet the unnamed Law Society investigator did not bother to contact even one of the witnesses nor even the victim, and arbitrarily dismissed the complaint without any explanation, report, nor reasons. http://gilmourlawsocietycomplaint.wordpress.com Many people including myself, wonder if there really was any "investigator" to begin with?!? The lawyer in this particular case was listed as a "member in good standing" even though he was just arrested for child abuse on August 14th, 2001! So if and when you get screwed by a lawyer in Canada file a police report and let the prosecutor and the courts bring the truth out into a public courtroom rather than in some back room of the Law Society.
