Default Toronto Area Lawyer who Accepts Legal Aid

Hi, Anyone have any GOOD referals for an aggressive family lawyer in the Toronto area (preferably Brampton) who takes legal aid. I'm discouraged by the number of lawyers who will not take legal aid certificates. I want them to handle my financial matters and I will handle the custody access issues on my own. I'm on lawyer #4. I know its going to look bad but this last change was out of my control (the firm bailed on me and breached our payment agreement and requested payment for past work $5000 and retainers for further work...they claim that because the matramonial home is not in my name, that I do not have anything that proves I can pay them once the equilization and settlement has been completed.) I'm making a complaint at the law society and will ask the court to assess the bill.
Anyhow, now I need a good lawyer. Mine's high conflict and I need an agressive one to stand up against my ex's who is very agressive and has plowed right through my last lawyer.
You're help is appreciated. I don't want to chance the yellow pages again.

Unfortunately you will have trouble finding a good one who takes legal aid and who isn't swamped already. I think legal aid only pays $97/hour. The top lawyers in the Toronto area are charging upwards of $400/hour.
