THERE ARE ONLY TWO REASONS TO DEAL WITH A LAW SOCIETY

You Need

 to Find

a

Lawyer

 

Do not trust any law society to help you or protect your rights. It will not happen.

You Have a Complaint Against a Lawyer

EITHER WAY, YOU WILL LOSE

Find a Lawyer?

Complaints?

Warning: Law Society Referrals Are Not What You Expect:

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.Do not gamble with a law society lawyer referral you will regret it.

Most lawyers are hard working, honest and reliable

Unfortunately, there are bad apples in the profession who make life difficult for clients and the other lawyers.

The Law Societies do not weed these bad apples out. They protect them from consumer complaints.

The complaint/discipline process is a sham, usually amounting to a slap on the wrist.

DID YOU KNOW?

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.

YOUR LAW SOCIETY WILL GIVE YOU EXCUSES, NOT RESULTS

Asking a law society for help is like asking a snake not to bite you

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.
