Sad day for Summerland
Like most people who have interests in Summerland, it was with great sadness to learn that the reputation of one of our very few barristers and solicitors, Tom Johnston, has taken a slap on the fingers by the disciplinary panel of the law society.
The $6,448 costs of the law society amounts to a little over 32 hours of billing time, and the 30-day suspension, well, there are options. The worst part of the episodes are the former clients who like so many people put their faith and trust in their solicitor only to be potentially harmed. All anyone can diplomatically say is “what goes around, eventually will come around.”
