You wrote:Expert: Daniel Freudman replied 3 years ago. A lawyer can be sued in pretty much the same grounds that any other professional can be sued- negligence, fraud, misrepresentations, defamation, etc. In your case, all of the grounds I just listed seem like they may be appropriate.You would sue this lawyer by filing a Statement of Claim against him, claiming 'damages' (monetary compensation) to compensate you for the suffering you endured as a result of this lawyer's improprieties. If his acts are unduly egregious, then you could also try to claim punitive damages, which represents money awarded to you to punish the lawyer for his misdeeds, rather than awarded to compensate you for your losses.
