Have you won at the nz law society or legal complaints review officers (services)

Rate this Entry
Does anyone know of someone who has won against a lawyer, barrister or the like at the New Zealand Law Society or the Legal Complaints Review Office (services).

I have two decisions of my own when I won against a Papakura Barrister named Warren Simpson BUT IF YOU THINK HIS NAME WAS PUBLISHED VIA THE DECISIONS SO THE GENERAL PUBLIC COULD KNOW WHO HE WAS, THINK AGAIN.

The Law Society keeps secret the names of those lawyers found against.

The Law Society, acting as if they are so good to the NZ Public do publish their decisions online however there is a twist, the NZLS do not disclose the name of the lawyer found against by doing the following which protects the lawyer being made known to the public.

DECISION

A lawyer, C, has been censured and fined $4,000 by a lawyers standards committee for contravening the Trust Account Regulations and failing to honour an undertaking to the NZLS.
___________________________
ANOTHER DECISION:
A lawyer, D, has been censured and fined $15,000 by a lawyers standards committee for his conduct around taking a retraction statement from a complainant. This is the maximum fine a standards committee can make.
____________________________
ANOTHER DECISION
A lawyer, B, has been fined $750 by a lawyers standards committee following five findings of unsatisfactory conduct relating to a residential property transaction.
____________________________

So much for the NZLS allowing us to have the opportunity to make an informed decision when hiring (instructing) a lawyer.

THE REAL NAMES of negligent legal practitioners are being compiled so a list can be nationally published online to allow you to search if your lawyer, or a lawyer you are looking at hiring (instructing) has their name on the list.

Spread the word.

Anyone having a decision against a lawyer can contact me on 0274-876894

    You say "The Law Society keeps secret the names of those lawyers found against."

    The Act allows them to keep names secret. S. 131(f) states the Law Society "may publish" names in accordance with the Rules. It is a discretion they have under the law.

    Oh yes: lawyers drafted the Act and made the Rules! So from the Law Society to all NZ'ers - bad luck.

    Sorry I had no success (so no names) because the misconduct was so serious it would have been published under the Rules when the lawyers were found guilty. But that publication would have brought the Law Society and its Members into disrepute, so the Law Society and LCRO found no misconduct.

    I've never had a complaint upheld by the NZLS *( Lawyers protection association) , the closest I got resulted in getting them to do something they were required to do by statute...refer a complaint about a trust fund to their "Joint Audit Board". Of course the fact that they'd breached a statute is not a problem when the head of the comitte being complained about is Hamish Woods, head of Police Legal Services.

    Thank you so much John and Beachedas for commenting on this issue re the Law Society and the LCRO. So many stories that I have heard about losing at the NZLS and the LCRO, and may I say it is not your fault.

    I won at the LCRO twice. The NZLS hates me but I don't give a &((%^()).

    Do you know why so many members of the public have their complaints dismiss by the NZ Law Society and then dismissed again at the Legal Complaints Review Office??? It is because the NZ Law Society are the Legal Complaints Review Office, that is the absolute truth.

    The Legal Complaints Review Office ("LCRO") is an internal process run by the NZ Law Society and paid by the NZ Law Society. The LCRO has nothing to do with the Ministry of Justice.

    If you don't believe me, that is entirely up to you, but you need to ask yourself one simplistic question, why I have been successful at the LCRO to overturn two NZ Law Society decisions!!!

    I love law (justice for all) and thus I am passionate about it. I can not stand for injustice.

    I have seen life savings from hard working people taken from their pocket and put into the pockets of cunning and deceitful individuals who claim to uphold the law.

    I am going to end this post by saying thanking so much to John and Beachedas for taking an interest of what I prior posted.

    Thanks. I agree with your above comment. I add that your allegation is proven by the Law Society's (and all lawyers) acceptance of the wording of the LCRO Act.

    If you review the Act it stated the LCRO'er cannot be lawyer [fantastic]. However, about 200 sections earlier the Act defines a "Lawyer" as someone who has a Practice Certificate.

    All LCRO'ers to date handed back their Practice Certificate virtually the day before they were appointed; so they fitted the criteria under the Act as a non-lawyer.

    The Law Society and all lawyers know this.

    It just shows how utterly stupid our MP's are.

    I totally agree with you. MP's are oblivious to the power members of the judiciary hold.
