So it took us over a year to get the survey done and almost a year to find out that the lawyer that was supposed to represent us, won't. First the freakin' lawyer had to determine if there was possibly a conflict (small town); that took months. Then we finally met with him, gave him instruction and offered a retainer which he said wasn't necessary. Many weeks go by with nothing -- so I called. And called. And called. Phone calls were never returned. In the real estate slow season no less. Not impressed. Got our documents back and now have to find another lawyer.
We used another lawyer a while back to do a simple spousal transfer and he started to have us sign divorce papers!
So, ya, that lawyer's out.
I've got a list of about 1/2 dozen lawyers now to cold call. I don't have anyone to ask for references. The only people I know to ask would refer me to the dipstick that assumed MDH and I were getting divorced. I know about the Law Society of Upper Canada, but they'll just give one name out of a hat. I can do that myself. Any tips on how to find the lawyer best suited for us?
