Re: Survey say's.......
Please do me a favor and report those attorneys to the local bar association. We spend a huge amount of time, effort, and money here enforcing ethics rules on our attorneys, and I hate hearing stories like this. A few complaints like this and I can promise you they won't be attorneys for long.
At least here in Louisiana this is ground for suspension if not disbarment.
In all fairness, the last time I checked, a lawyer is allowed to take someone to court.
Complaining to "The old boys club", aka; The Canadian Bar Association will get you nowhere. They take care of their own.
If there ever is an issue with a lawyer in Canada it would be the Crown Prosecutor's responsibility to bring it to the attention of the Courts, the Judge in the matter would deal with it accordingly.
Canadian law is based on the old British Common Law system. It's processes go way back.
We have three rules;
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
