Ron Perrick Wants To Take Your Money And Sue You
Ron Perrick is an ambitious man. Not only is he a registered agent in Canada, but he also is a practicing attorney. He is experienced in the court and has represented CFL and NHL players since 1970. He also seems to be determined to piss his clients off.
Perrick decided to take $926,916 in fees from a client without giving that client any prior notice [Judge overrules lawyer’s $926,916 fee]. Such action constitutes a breach of trust, and Perrick will not say what he has done with the money. He has finally given the total amount back to a court and decided to counter-sue his client and his/her lawyer (the identity of the client is not revealed). He was going to act as his own attorney.
Perrick displayed stupid judgment in taking money out of a trust fund without notifying the client that was affected, and then withholding information when requested. And I leave you with my favorite quote from the article:
There is an old saying: A lawyer who acts for himself has a fool for a client. Judging by the tarpit that Perrick has gotten himself into, this is a case in point.
