  • The Solicitor William Gilmour Case - A Question Of Ethics...

    In Canada, the Law Societies have a reputation for concealing the wrongdoings of lawyers on a systemic level. In one way I can understand if they do this once for some recent law grad who made a dumb mistake due to inexperience. But when they repeatedly cover up even egregious cases of ineffective assistance of counsel or criminal offenses like extortion and billing-fraud, I think such cover-ups, when discovered, taints the entire legal profession.

    I am doing a thesis on Legal Ethics of Refugee Extraditions and came across this "unusual" case of a Canadian lawyer named William Gilmour of Ontario, Canada who basically fabricated his legal credentials to a whistle blower client and former federal agent of the U.S. government who sought sanctuary in Canada with his Canadian wife and children. Upon arriving in Canada he filed a refugee claim.

    When reviewing the case files it is impossible to dismiss the many legal failures of Gilmour that are self-explanatory and IMO, so far beyond the code of ethics, that it is unbelievable there was no disbarrment. Read this and see if you agree... http://GilmourLawSocietyComplaint.wordpress.com.

    Now also consider that the lawyer in question was also terminated from his former law firm for "billing irregularities" and prior to becoming a lawyer was involved in a wrongful shooting incident as an RCMP officer and asked to resign. Then according to the archives at Tom Davis Courthouse in Brampton, Ontario, this same attorney was himself arrested for assaulting a minor.

    Shortly thereafter he began "misplacing" documentary evidence when the client suggested he would terminate his representation. Now that you know this background, can you fathom any reason why the Law Society would continue covering-up for this attorney?

    Solicitor William Gilmour is not your typical Canadian lawyer and I hope people reading this thread will not use him as a yardstick to measure the ethics and integrity of all Canadian lawyers. As you can see from this link he is not the only problem child of the Canadian legal community http://www.metronews.ca/news/canada/...o-to-jail.html.

    Having said this, I must say that as a bencher for more than 5 years, the real problem is a corrupt Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC). To be direct, they charge lawyers annual dues every year which really amounts to "protection money". In return for private pay-offs that can be as much as $500,000 (depending upon the severity of the accusation) the LSUC will keep victims from calling the police or news media with their innocuous agreements (aka disclosure agreements). I found these articles online, and I am very sad to say that they are true.

    Also, as you know, the LSUC would never disclose the arrest record of any lawyer that is a member of the Law Society including Gilmour's arrest on August 14th, 2001 for child abuse, even though it is a matter of public record at the Peel Regional Police Department in Mississauga. By comparison, the American Bar Association provides transparency of a lawyer's arrest records, but the LSUC is all about secrecy.

    What make matters even worse is that the LSUC cannot be sued for any of their wrong doings, even even if they obstruct justice. So yes, Gilmour may be a "bad apple" but the LSUC is the tree of corruption from which this apple fell.

      Yes, I agree... the Law Society of Canada is an "old boys" network that covertly shields crooked and criminal lawyers and Gilmour was just the **** that floated to the top of the swimming pool. Dozens of other cases remain submerged and out of public view. This Canadian lawyer has been convicted 18 times and is still practicing law. And just like Gilmour "Is a member in good standing with the Law Society" which is the reply you get when you contact the Law Society of Upper Canada about any of their members!

      My personal experience with them is too long to explain, but I was actually threatened when they learned I was going to turn over my case files to the Globe & Mail newspaper for investigation. The LSUC is a corrupt organization in dire need of reform and a complete flush.

            Its a miracle this man has not been disbarred. His payments to the Ontario Law Society must be HUGE! The part about the invisible private investigator smells like five day old fish in July!

              Solicitor William Gilmour was himself arrested for child abuse in Brampton Ontario but since the case file is sealed, I don't know if it is sexual abuse or just beating some kid. Despite this the Law Society of Ontario says he is in "good standing" and will not say how many complaints were filed against Solicitor William Gilmour. I think this article says it all http://lawsocietyofuppercanada.wordpress.com/

                Yeah, it would be interesting to see the court file. How did he manage to get the court file sealed?

                  According to the clerk of court at Tom Davis courthouse in Brampron, Ontario Gilmour was having an affair with one of the magistrates who pulled some strings for him. Natalie at the Crown Attorney's office said he did something similar with the Pole dancer girl case from House of Lancaster and all the women working at the courthouse now think he is scum.But his redeeming quality is that he has a lot of cop friends if need an alibi for something, one of his cop buddies will lie for you for $5000.

                    If this corrupt as*hole William Gilmour was practicing law here in America he would have been East River fish food long ago. just look at his history at https://reddit.com/r/crookedlawyers. He's also listed as a governmnet informant at https://whosarat.com.

                      Wow, what a surprise finding Atty. Bill Gilmour here at legaljunkies.com. Twenty years ago he tried to extort my niece in Toronto out of $250,000. I told her to press charges against the guy with the police, but she said he was the lawyer for the local cops and was afraid to make waves. Frankly I would be surprised isf this sleazeball is still alive. This lawyer survives by representing dirty and brutal cops from what I see online.

                        IMO is correct. Gilmour used to represent the Peel Regional Police department but was quietly let go after he was arrested by the very same Peel Regional Police on August 14th, 2001 in Brampton, Ontario for assaulting a 10 year-old minor. It is not clear if this was sexual assault or a beating. I did a search about Gilmour and just on this forum alone there are over 120 comments about this swell fellow; https://forum.legaljunkies.com/search?q=William+Gilmour&searchJSON=%7B%22keywords %22%3A%22William+Gilmour%22%7D

                          Well...I think lawyers who fleece 80 year-old widows and then fake their own death to avoid prosecution should be publicly executed on live television during the half-time show of the next Superbowl. https://forum.legaljunkies.com/forum...666#post651666

                            2022 UPDATE: Guys we have taken our eye of the ball. Lawyer William Gilmour's criminal activities have spread to New York and South Florida with some new scams we never knew he was doing like probate and estate fraud. Read the statements of 88 year-old Anna Schuster at scam. com, and that pole dancer chick was deported so she could not testify against Gilmour for the 2015 incident at House of Lancaster. Some of the other threads in the "Lawyers and Ethics" category https://forum.legaljunkies.com/forum/attorneys-courts-litigation/attorneys-and-legal-ethics/651530-is-atty-william-gilmour-toronto-s-worst-lawyer-or-do-you-know-someone-even-worse. But the most disturbing evidence that has surfaced relates to his August 14th, 2001 arrest for assaulting a 10 year-old boy in Brampton. Ontario. If you read his emails that were published by a hacker, there appears to be multiple assaults, even after the court-ordered rehab. Read the emails at https://reddit.com/r/criminallawyers and be your own judge.

                            The reason we didn't know about this shi* is because all along he has hired a hacker to delete and corrupt over a dozen warning links from the victims in Florida, New York, and Toronto. So really, we still don't know what we don't know based on this summary of a guy who went on a 20 year crime spree hiding behind his law degree and Toronto connections. https://www.docdroid.net/dTJw6Bc/lawyer-william-gilmour-pdf I hope they catch him in the act South of the border where he has no connections. Down here he uses the alias of William Gilmore and even wears a phony mustache and glasses. I'm going to print out all these posts about Gilmour aka Gilmore and send them to the FDLE in Florida and the Buffalo Police Department. It's obvious that he is untouchable in Canada.

                              Hey bud, someone already redirected one of your links so this one seems to work, https://reddit.com/r/criminallawyers and if someone hacks that one too, you can still read Gilmour's bombshell emails at https://pedophilelawyers.wordpress.com . They don't need much to the imagination imo.
