I'm doing a project that involves checking out every lawyer in the city, mostly to determine what areas of law they practise in. This is made more difficult by the fact that a surprising number of lawyers around here don't have websites. Time to join the 21st century, guys. It's just a good thing that I live in a relatively small city.

When there's no website, I google the name to see what I can find online about them. So I search one particular guy. The first link goes to another kind of list of lawyers, with his picture. The third link leads to an article about a lawyer with this guy's name being the first lawyer from this city to be disbarred for sexual assault. He assaulted a client. And the picture for that article is the same picture that's on the other list.

Just to make sure, I confirmed that, yes, he's still practising. I went to the law society website. It states that his licence was revoked.

Holy cow.

I reported him, of course. It takes some serious brass to continue to work after being disbarred in such a way that it was reported in a regular newspaper, without even moving to another city. What's up with all of the other lawyers in this city? Did every single one fail to see the case about this guy?

So this is a lesson to google any professional before hiring them. You never know what might turn up.
