If you think your lawyer is stealing from you, report him/her to the Disciplinary Committee of the Barbados Bar Association.

That’s the advice of Tariq Khan, president of the association, who said yesterday that legislation was already in place to deal with such situations.

Khan was responding to businessman Robert Pitcher who has called on Government to put laws in place to prevent lawyers from putting their clients’ money into their personal bank accounts and using it.

“The law does not cover the client,” Pitcher, director of Fun ‘N’ Sun Publishing charged.

He said lawyer were free put a client’s money in a “client account”, accumulate the interest and not give to the client. If at any time they need to use the client’s money, he added, they can do so and when the clients need their money, they cannot get it.
