What province is this please?

Are you saying that lawyer has the documents?

I dont know where the documents would be . i am in Ontario
Expert:  Debra replied 2 years ago.

So you were right to contact the law society. It is actually the Law Society of Upper Canada. They will know where the lawyers's files are. They could be with another firm or the LSUC could have them in storage.

So call again if it is urgent and explain the matter is becoming urgent and you cannot wait.
