The announcement explains the importance of retaining independent legal counsel when facing professional misconduct charges. Particularly for young lawyers at the start of their careers, decisions made during their training can have a lasting impact on their future prospects. Mr. Jaksa brings an innate understanding of the pressures facing law students and the obligations of their supervisors in ensuring that professional standards are upheld.

According to the Law Society of Ontario’s website, By-Law 7.1 sets out the functions and tasks that a Canadian law student is permitted to perform and the level of supervision required for these. The regulations state that it is incumbent on the supervising lawyer to set the parameters under which the student practitioner can operate. Miscommunication and a lack of clarity on these issues can result in trainees breaching professional standards.

Mr. Jaksa and his team bring expertise in the definitions of professional misconduct and those actions which are said to bring discredit to the legal profession. With a detailed knowledge of the potential violations of the Law Society Act and the Paralegal Rules of Conduct, the firm ensures that any allegations are substantiated by the appropriate evidence.

The firm advocates for a swift response as soon as a student becomes aware of charges being laid against them, ensuring that sound legal advice and representation are at hand from the early stages of proceedings right through until a hearing. Mr. Jaksa holds the regulatory body to account for any breaches in procedures, delays in processes, or mishandling of evidence.
