Via Glenn Kauth at Legal Feeds: “Lawyers advised to avoid referral service“:

The Law Society of Upper Canada is warning its members about a lawyer referral service that has prompted several complaints from the profession and the public.

The LSUC is warning its members about this website canlaw.com.

The notice relates to a service called CanLaw or the Canadian Lawyer Index, both found online at canlaw.com. An LSUC notice “strongly recommends” against subscribing to the service.

According to the law society, CanLaw is a subsidiary of Kirwood Inc., while the Canadian Lawyer Index is a division of Kirwood Inc. The purported president of the Canadian Lawyer Index is J. Kirby Inwood. None of the three companies is associated with the law society, the notice states.

A link to LSUC Notice to the Profession is available here and is reproduced below (click twice to enlarge image):

Note that the LSUC Notice to the Profession states:

“And, J. Kirby Inwood is not a licensee of the Law Society.”
