Default Why/is this Ontario lawyer still practising?

I'm at a loss as to which category to post this.

Here is a case of a lawyer (Oakville, Ontario) and his wife who borrowed money from a client... yes you read this correctly.... lawyer didn't keep track of bills with client but says they had an "arrangement" that legal work he did for her (real estate agent) would simply be deducted off of the amount he borrowed from her... no need to send her statements.

You know as well as I do that the Law Society of Upper Canada protects lawyers - it never disciplines them.
