It is common knowledge that accusations and out and out lies are expected in Family Law. That has to stop! Lawyers need to be more responsible and advise clients of consequenses...maybe loosing custody. Otherwise the court system is nothing but a sham...best liar wins?

Yes - tell a lawyer you will report them to the law society - the lawyer probably has a difficult time holding back laughter. I believe the harsh penalty which is handed out is "remedial reading."

(I do believe the one thing that lawyers dislike is having their bills assessed but that is another mini-legal process unto itself).

Of all the A list professions lawyers have zero accountability. I mean they could swing a rabid cat by the tail and toss it at the judge and what do you think would happen? Probably nothing ....

The Gov. should step in and set boundaries for their fees. Serious sanctions should be handed out for proven incompetence (same as doctor's malpractice suits). Review boards that would include non-lawyer participants. And for those who ruin lives -disbarred, go work at Tim Horton's and see if you like it!
