A notice of license revocation from the web page of the Law Society of Ontario
The Law Society alleged that Matys Rapoport, 1984, of Brooklin, engaged in professional misconduct.
The panel determined that the following allegations were established:
- The respondent charged excessive and unreasonable fees to clients that were not disclosed in a timely fashion, contrary to then Rule 2.08(1) of the Rules of Professional Conduct.
- The respondent failed to serve clients, contrary to then Rule 2.02(2) of the Rules of Professional Conduct.
- The respondent breached then Rule 2.03(1) of the Rules of Professional Conduct in that he, while vacationing in the Dominican Republic, worked on a client’s physical file in a hotel lobby, and showed photographs from the file to strangers.
- The respondent communicated in a manner that was abusive, offensive or otherwise inconsistent with the proper tone of professional communication from a lawyer, contrary to then Rule 6.03(1) of the Rules of Professional Conduct
It looks like the web page has a user-friendly updated look. (Mike Frisch)
