Other resources to assist lawyers

Lawyers are encouraged to seek the advice of counsel at the earliest stages of an investigation, in particular when the allegations are serious in nature. The Society has compiled a list of practitioners who have volunteered to represent lawyers in the professional responsibility process on a pro bono or reduced fee basis.

In the event of a suspension, please see the Guidelines respecting Lawyers’ Voluntary or Involuntary Cessation of Practice.   

For a summary of the Society’s complaint statistics and the nature of complaints received each year and how they are resolved, see the Professional Responsibility section of the NSBS Annual Report
