How to Complain
They will seldom do anything to help consumers with legitimate grievances, so beware.
There is a 90% probability that your complaint will be dismissed by the law society.
They exist not for the protection of consumers from lawyers, but for the protection of lawyers from consumers. They represent lawyers, not you.
They will act only in the most extreme cases against incompetent, or dishonest lawyers.
Even then, many disbarred lawyers are quietly reinstated after the dust settles.
Most complaints are frivolous, groundless and do not have any real merit. These are quickly dismissed by any law society.
However your complaint should be filed on the slight chance that they will have an impact.
HOW TO DEAL WITH YOUR LAW SOCIETY
Contacts, Tips, Effective Complaining, Web and E-mail links to Law Societies
You generally can only get one lawyer's name from a law society referral and you are stuck with that lawyer.
Lawyers subscribing to law society referrals pay a fee to the law society and when it is their turn they get the next referral. There is no checking of skills, experience or suitability for your case.

THE ALLEGATIONS IN THIS BIZARRE 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.
