DISCIPLINE COMMITTEE APPEALS LAWYERS
Discipline Committee Appeals Lawyers Based in Toronto, Servicing Clients Across Ontario.
If you have been found guilty of professional misconduct by the Discipline Committee of your College, you have the right to appeal that decision.
You may appeal the Discipline Committee’s decision if you are found guilty of professional misconduct. You may also appeal the Discipline Committee’s decision on the order or penalty. Finally, you may appeal both at the same time.
If you are considering appealing a Discipline Committee decision, you should contact a lawyer immediately. In most cases, you only have thirty days from the date of the Discipline Committee’s decision to notify the College that you intend to appeal the decision.
In most cases, when you appeal a Discipline Committee decision, the penalty which was ordered against you will be put on hold. In practice, this means that you can go back to your career while your appeal is being prepared, heard and decided.
An appeal of a Discipline Committee’s decision is heard by judges of the Divisional Court. The Divisional Court will decide whether the decision of the Discipline Committee was reasonable and has the power to overturn the decision.
Damien Frost & Associates LLP represents professionals who are appealing Discipline Committee decisions on both findings of professional misconduct, as well as penalties imposed. Contact Damien Frost & Associates LLP immediately if you are considering appealing a Discipline Committee decision in order to ensure that your right to do so is preserved.
I was accused by my former employer of interfering and damaging their computer systems. I was charged under the Criminal Code for mischief, unauthorized access and destruction of data, which was a very scary, stressful, and upsetting experience. I thought that my world was over and all the hard work I had done in my life was coming to an end. Mr. Frost's initial consultation (which was no obligation and free of charge) helped a lot to calm my nerves and comfort me and my family in trying times. His team was very understanding, sympathetic, concerned and supporting, she always took my frantic phone calls with calmness and assurance and helped me understand the progress of my case clearly. At every step, I received sound professional advice. At the end of the case, the charges were dropped. As a result, I do not have a criminal record, my reputation is intact, and my current job is still secure. Words cannot truly express my gratitude for having such amazing lawyers. From explaining the terminology used in court, to sitting with me outside the court room when I couldn't hold back my tears, they stood by my side. Thank you for exceeding my expectations, and then some.J.S.
