What province are they in?
To file a complaint against the lawyer you would do so through the law society. They are the lawyers' governing body and deal with professional misconduct.
Here is a link to the information you will need:http://www.lawsociety.ab.ca/lawyer_regulation/complaints.aspx
If there was a settlement it may not be possible to see what was settled unless for some reason the settlement was filed with the courts. That could be the case if they filed what is called Minutes of Settlement.
If there is an order then it is a matter of public record and you can get a copy from the courthouse.
You can get a copy of any document in the court file so your next step would be to call the courthouse on Monday and ask for a copy of all that is in the court file. You will have to pay a photocopy fee.
Does that help as a starting point?
The law society of the province governs all lawyers in the province.
You will get all you need from the court file.
