Notice of Confidentiality WITHOUT PREJUDICE, EXTREME OR OTHER WISE
your not even a Jew Justin Griffin
Disbarred lawyer Justin Griffin says he’ll fight to get back his law license. Griffin, 57, had his licence revoked in May after being found guilty of professional misconduct by the Law Society of Upper Canada. The society, which regulates the legal profession, said the
longtime Brantford lawyer acted as a solicitor when his license was suspended in 2006 and failed to co-operate with a subsequent investigation. Griffin is challenging the ruling.
"My position is they didn’t have the right to take it in the first place," he said. A lawyer for 13 years, Griffin’s troubles started in June 2006, when his license was suspended over nonpayment of fees. Although the suspension was lifted once he paid the money owed, the law society later charged Griffin with breaching the original order by representing clients on at least three occasions — from June to August 2006 — while his privileges were suspended. It also said that Griffin failed to produce information that was requested in numerous letters sent between September 2006 and December 2007. Griffin, whose mother was native, ( your half breed like Kenneth Copeland ) said he was appointed as a legal counsel by the Sovereign Anishinabe Nation in February 2006 and was acting in that capacity on the three dates in question. When the Society asked for access to files that contained confidential client information, Griffin refused. "I told the law society I didn’t come under their jurisdiction," said Griffin, who also uses the name ah’seh hodeeheehonto (Three Hawks).
