Re: [Excessive/unfair] lawyer [fees].........unreal.

I think that an ethical lawyer would have periodically discussed with the client how the costs were going, and whether or not proceeding with the case was still worth it.

Ross Celino (sing it with me guys, Celino and Barnes, injury attorneys, call 888-8-8-88!) over in Buffalo was suspended for six months a few years back for similar stuff. Steve Barnes was also involved. He wasn't suspended, but was censured. I'm surprised the Law Society of British Columbia sees something like this as being on the up-and-up, especially since the court ordered her ex-CLS to pay all legal fees.
