Barbadians Cry Out as Barbados Bar Association Continues to Protect Crooked Lawyers and Dysfunctional System

Liesel Weekes

On many occasions in which clients have brought disciplinary proceedings against their attorneys for misappropriating or unduly withholding their funds, once the funds have been repaid the client is no longer interested in pursuing the matter at the disciplinary committee – .Liesel Weekes, President of the BAR

The President of the Barbados Bar Association (BBA) Liesel Weekes delivered from legalese text last week an insensitive rebuttal to the public. It is no secret lawyers have withheld client funds, misappropriated client funds, ‘misplaced’ important documents, been unresponsive and unprofessional. Weekes found the time to steadfastly defend her Association as any lawyer is trained to do.

She stated that unless members of the public presented evidence the ‘talk’ about lawyers being crooked is not sufficient to discipline the lawyer being accused. What Weekes and her predecessors have failed to do is update the public on the following just to name a few items:

  • The date complaint was received and responded to by the Barbados Bar Association/Disciplinary Committee
  • The number of complaints received and the number actioned by the BBA/Disciplinary Association
  • Give a listing of the nature of the charges contained in the complaints received by the BBA/Disciplinary Committee
  • How many complaints were not followed by the BBA/Disciplinary Committee because accused lawyers frustrated the process
  • Provide an Ageing Report’ of complaints outstanding with the BBA/Disciplinary Committee

No we do not accept that as President of the BBA Ms. Weekes has no idea the status of complaints lodged with the Disciplinary Committee. A commonsense approach would have been to have the Chairperson of the Disciplinary Committee append to the statement issued by Weekes.

Barbados Underground over the years has posted many blogs to highlight a dysfunctional court system including the ancillary services. The blogmaster is aware the BBA and Disciplinary Committee have not been given the resources to provide a quality service to the public. In fact one would deem it a nobrainer given the volume of complaints about the legal system from the public at home and abroad that successive governments would have addressed the matter. One is therefore left to assume tthe obvious.

At the town hall meetings in Canada recently Prime Minister Mia Mottley – a lawyer- admitted that the justice system is failing those who are forced to seek justice. A Barbadian in the diaspora also shared an experience with David Ellis last week where he travelled from overseas to attend a hearing in Barbados and he was not notified that the lawyer defending the matter would have been unavailable.

Over the years the blogmaster has observed some of our ‘best’ lawyers elected to the role of President of the BBA or appointed  to Chair the Disciplinary Committee. However,  service to the general public has not improved. Despite many of our ‘best’ lawyers having been elevated to become members of parliament and ministers of government where they have the opportunity to influence policymaking.

In the same way the BBA is always quick to comment on legislation harmful to the power brokers, why not recommend a change to the law that would permit the Crown to prosecute lawyers accused of stealing clients funds when there is evidence monies were repaid? The practice of lawyers repaying monies to clients on condition they do not prosecute is immoral and continues to compromise the justice system. Michael Carrington the former Speaker of the House is a good example.

To the lawyers that are members of the government- enough is enough!

  • What I have seen here is that some lawyers will inflate their fees 10X if they have something to gain from the matter.

    They will even seek to recover fees which are unrecoverable and tie up court time.

    Put differently, some lawyers here do not behave as lawyers and will use a willing court as a means to an end.

    Completely unscrupulous!!

    Some judges are in my view definitely on the take!!

    I believe the gentleman with the Charity 100 percent.

    Barbados Lawyers are devoid of intelligence and copy everyone abroad especially the UK Documentation why fleecing locals who don’t know better.

    I did a Business incorporation in the UK via Company House for around 55 pounds under BD$200 with the aid of an UK Accountant.

    Would have cost me around 20 pounds or less than BD$100 if I had done myself as I learned later as there was no need for Accountant or Lawyer to form a Limited Liability Company Ltd.

    I came to Barbados shortly after and opened exact same type of company an Ltd.

    What amazed me it was compulsory to use a LOCAL lawyer and the Paperwork used for the Incorporation was an exact copy replica of the forms in the UK.

    BARBADOS Mandatory Cost Breakdown
    Lawyer Fee BD$1500
    Government Incorporation Fee BD$750
    Name Search BD$100
    Total Cost $2350

    Compared in the UK less than $200, Barbados being more than 10 times difference of over $2100.

    Yes David the aim is always to use our blogging experience for positive gain… I wholeheartedly agree.

    Thus the arguments are truly NOT about the character Trump but about what you euphemistically call “provocation” (fabrication and lies).

    Just as I don’t begrudge Mariposa/AC or Enuff their unwavering political fandom I also don’t care who likes Trump…it’s the provocative and blatant lies that bring the bike into the throat.

    I agree with the sentiment of what can Dean Jeff do re the query: “David….please get Jeff to address this issue of Lawyers in Barbados and why it takes lawyers to be involved in most transactions. I know it may take him MANY articles but we need to get these parasites off our backs.”

    It’s already established that much lawyer involvement is based of legislative stipulations (enacted and reinforced by said legal fraternity of elected brethern).

    As I try to keep things SIMPLE so that everyone can understand.

    The company I had incorporated in the UK as an example was ABC Ltd.

    I incorporated the same company in ,ABC Bdos Ltd signing exact same WORDED paperwork I had used in UK to sign but provided through a local Bajan Attorney.

    The cost difference to do so was over 10 times or over $2100 and was MANDATORY TO USE A BAJAN LAWYER.

    Here is a ruse that is seen on the Barbados Bar Association web site

    By the way, every single clause on this page is numbered #1 (I believe that the Nameless Ones #1 did the site)

    I mean, you means dat in all of Barbados dere is not a feller who can format your website?

    I do a screen shot for wunna to see um later. When dem run and fix um today.

    The item begins

    “… A client or any person wanting to complain against an attorney-at-law for professional misconduct MUST visit the Secretary of the Disciplinary Committee, located on the premises of the Barbados Bar Association at ‘Leeton” Perry Gap, Roebuck Street, St. Michael…”

    So a person in England, like the Stewart, have to leave the UK and go to Leeton where

    “..The client must collect 2 forms:

    (a) “A FORM OF APPLICATION AGAINST AN ATTORNEY-AT-LAW” and;

    (b) “A FORM OF AFFIDAVIT BY APPLICANT”.

    The first form must be filled out and signed by the APPLICANT and the second form must be signed by a JUSTICE OF THE PEACE.

    Now mind you, de ole man can download the corresponding form from any non banana Republic Jurisdiction but in Bulbados you got to go and see de Secretary who does grill you.

    And if you ask for a record of your being there, NONE IS GIVEN!!!

    “…The complaint will then be reviewed by the Committee in a formal hearing to determine if a case of professonal misconduct is made out against the attorney-at-law…”

    Now tell de ole man if I miss something in this procedure

    How de ass dem getting de completed form?

    Dat part completely missing…anyways

    “…Where a case of professional misconduct have (? have been, and dese is lawyers???) been determined, the Committee must within 21 days forward to the Chief Justice a report of its findings and any recommendation for appropriate sanctions to be instituted agianst (agianst? Or is this angst? dat dem is using?) the attorney-at-law.

    The matter is then heard before the Court of Appeal and the court shall either endorse the recommendation of the Committee or institute its own sanctions against the attorney-at-law…”

    Wunna understanding what is being discussed here?

    By the way, who does one go to initially, the BBA or the Disciplinary Committee?

    Do wunna know which one is which?

    Wunna see any information about how you are able to get a record of delivering your documents to that BBA set of illiterates?

    When they say formal does that mean you are involved in the process?

    How do you get go hear ghd outcome of this entity?

    By telepathy?

    And this is the Entity that Andrew Pilgrim chaired at some time?

    Who are the people who have seved as the executive of this board up to 2019?

    Given “legal” advice to a buddy of mine who was enduring “baby mamma drama” Unless the woman is completely psycho, all she really wants is proper support for the child. proper being half of what it costs to raise a human being to adulthood. More that half if she is “poor” and the child father is Mr. Deep Pockets. Anyway they had agreed on the amount, but the methodology was deeply flawed. That is from payday to receiving the money was taking way too long. That annoys child mothers.

    Solution: Told daddy to open a separate account. Ask employer to deposit the child money there. PIN the account, but daddy forgets the pin number, and does not keep the ATM card. Child mother is large and in charge of that account. Every payday like magic the money shows up on the dot. Since the employer and the child mother used the same bank, sometimes the child mother got her money before daddy, who used a different bank from his employer got his. He thought that this part was funny. Child mother happy. Child is well provided for. Parents no longer have to see each other’s faces, so parents are no longer squabbling. Everybody happy. Child is almost an adult. Everybody still happy. Because once the squabbling ceases life is sweet.

    Completely “illegal” but it has worked for well over a decade.

    Shedding Some Light,
    Interestingly enough, your spot-on assessment of Piece Uh De Cock has been derived primarily from his own “mouthings” here on BU.
    The blog master doesn’t have to ban anybody. The passage of time, their own words, and good old-fashioned Bajan perceptiveness will inevitably combine to destroy the credibility of the nasty-minded, the pretentious (personified spectacularly by Pachamamum), the deceitful, the fraudulent, and the hypocritical.
    That said, BU is a microcosm of the wider society so we must expect to see both good and bad traits of “Barbadiana” flourishing on this blog.
    Piece uh De Cock takes great pleasure in referring to BU writers and readers as “Bahcvnts”
    In commemoration of Good Friday, I had planned to figuratively nail him to the cross and provoke the biggest “Bahcvnt” on BU (a very simple task) into spewing and puking up some of the limitless vitriolic bile that resides deeply within him. IMF or no IMF, BERT or no BERT, Barbados cannot move forward unless some major form of psychological cleansing (better known as attitudinal change) is achieved in many of its inhabitants.

    You have now laid bare the tortured soul and psyche of Piece Uh De Cock for everyone on BU to see, so there is no longer any need for me to carry out my planned “experiment”.

    Black Royalty is re-emerging thanks to our Black Queens many of whom are awoke…

    “Black women and their lives have produced some of the most important things modern life and generations have grown to love – from music, aeronautic science, math, entrepreneurship, literature, statesmanship, philanthropy and a long list of other things.
    While black women need no reminder of their important contributions to the world, but one bank is trying to ensure that others also acknowledge and honor their force and influence.

    According to a Black Enterprise, OneUnited Bank, the largest Black-owned bank in the country, recently announced its latest campaign aimed at celebrating the accomplishments of fearless melanated leaders. In their March 20 release, the bank introduced the Queen Visa Debit Card, also detailing that its a part of its Royalty Campaign.

    “The Bank is celebrating a new generation of Queens in America who are claiming their thrones. From scientists to activists, from educators to entertainers, Black women are changing the world,” the statement read.

    The women who inspired the series range from historical figures to modern powerhouses, including activists Harriet Tubman and Angela Davis who join award-winning singers Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah and Beyoncé.

    OneUnited says that its new campaign aligns with its efforts to take the #BankBlack and #BuyBlack movements to the next level. As the leader in the Black banking industry, we take the challenge to strengthen the Black community’s financial future very seriously,” the bank said in a statement about its #BankBlack challenge. “

    The Online Ombudsman would feature your matter in 5 ways

    It would provide a case # and date for your matter.

    It would show your letter and date

    It would show their letter & date

    It would show our letter and date to the same entity (and your permission to write them)

    It would show the names of the lawyers involved EVERY SINGLE DAY FLASHING IN OUR EQUIVALENT OF AMERICA’S MOST WANTED

    It would feature your voice and it would feature the voice of the lawyers refusing your rights

    Then it would take that PERFIDIOUS letter and convert it to text and paste that into a Legal Biopic all over the Barbados Bar Association and the website of the offending lawyers

    By which time the Online Ombudsman would have all sorts of people checking our platform daily to see which lawyer is among BARBADOS’ MOST UNWANTED LAWYERS.

    Upload your letter to Google Docs and send a link here.

    Leh me show you what the possibilities are for a 5 year matter.

    It would however feature the offending lawyers in an extremely interesting way that will get them noticed!

    But for a few seconds you were excited weren’t you?

    Well right now, that veiled promise as to what the site can do to highlight their inequities has them “excited” too

    David, do you actually see the level of ignorance and imbecility one has to tolerate to entertain the likes of someone whom has characterized himself as a Barbados scholar?

    If GP was a Barbados Scholar then Gearbox had to be one as well … the man has little or no command over his emotions … GP, the essence of an educated man is his ability to remain stoic in the face of personal attack… and you my friend is in want of such quality…

    ..are you missing the bushman? looks like you are a genuine sergeant …and a loyal NCO….

    However..
    There is a time for everything under the sun…
    a time to laugh …and a time to cry
    A time to live …and a time to die
    A time to whack …and a time to keep your donkey quiet…
    besides…
    There is not much point in whacking plimplers and grass… to what end…?
    It is THAT simple…

    @ All
    Bushie is fine…. (understatement of the decade..)
    Having the best time of his life ….BY FAR – as we speak..

    Sorry to break that ‘news’ to those who were wishing the bushman dead… (he that diggeth a well….)
    but even when THAT happens, …it will turn out to be the best thing EVER ….for an adopted son…..

    @ David

    Could someone just point me to this Triune Discourse that caused this?

    Dont worry dont worry, some things just are, I guess.

    As Mugabe says ” Say the Curse” sorry de computer acting up “Stay the Course”

    She must only be a 5 term government so there is much to be done!

    Remember that “Pressure Bursts Pipes”

    Let me encourage you GENTLEMEN here about this race.

    Look at Barbados Underground

    Observe how it has changed from all the bravado and 30 to 0 to quiet.

    The radical change to Mugabe was necessary AND SO WERE THE TEN YEARS UNDER FUMBLES!!!

    WE, THE FEW, NOTWITHSTANDING OUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, WITH OUR EYES FOCUSED ON OUR GOD AND OUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH HIM, STILL LIVE IN THIS TEMPORAL WORLD

    THOSE OF YOU WHO SUSPECT WHO MY ALTER EGO IS, CAUSE NONE OF YOU KNOW DEFINITIVELY need to ask yourselves this question

    He could have sold out after May 24th and beg like a dog, like David Come Sing a Song and still get a lil piece sorry pick.

    So why not?

    He certainly is not foolish, nor is he Caligula in Syphilitic throes, so why is he doing this?

    What does the ole man gain?

    Each day my list of fans, euphemism for enemies increases. Right now there are 15 active people who cuss me daily.

    And any time any one of you just support one thing I say, wunna gets assaulted.

    Why dat?

    Examine that for a moment, what is it that is being said that is soooooo vexing to the Mugabe-ites?

    Is it that we call her PrimeWicker?

    Not really, she did not create herself, but if she mutilated a other person, then I got a problem with it.

    What frightens me is the pattern. Notwithstanding my personal stuff it is the Forgiveness of taxes, knighting my daddy, changing the constitution, forcing MyMoney scam on the nation, hiring 30 ministers, firing 5,000 bajans, tekking $115 million for your friends and giving people $15 million

    Leh me BREK dat down

    15,000,000 ÷ 280,000 = $53.57 cents for five years which when divided by 365 days and again by 5 CANNOT PAY FOR YOUR DAILY $3.50 BUSFARES.

    Are you understanding where I am coming from yet.

    This Crime Minister is living jn luxury while all of the people who elected here are being asked to

    SAY THE CURSE SORRY “STAY THE COURSE” (my computer does act up bad).

    Our task is simple.

    Every single day we need to get people to rethink the way they elect people AND DEMAND DELIVERABLES so that no one can ever come again to the HoA and say STAY DE RH COURSE while giving herself, and 30 other moFos, a RH increase

    We have one enemy and it wears the face of Mugabe!!

    When the youths read the negatives and disrespectful comments, what are they to think or how later behave? Comeon people if you are adult act it. NOW.

    On Lawyers
    They are like most people except more priviledged. They will try anything. They know they are untouchable in Barbados.

    Some years ago a visitor I had met on the job was hurrying out of the Hotel with a Newspaper wrapped package under his arm and an angry look on his face. I stopped him and asked what was going on. (On his previous visits here I had never seen him upset). He gave me a long story, the gist being that he notifies his Attorney each time they are coming to Barbados, gets an appointment, but when they get to the office the Secretary tell him that the Attorney is in Court or out of the island, that it had been going on for some years and he was going to stop it.

    He said, they had spent loads of money on travel and accommodation and wasted time they could have spent relaxing, it was a land matter and he was going to the city to dismember the Attorney. (He patted the wrapped item).I asked for his wife and he said she was packing as they were leaving shortly.

    Fortunately, after an exhausting while, I persuaded him that this was not the way, he needed to think of his wife and two children. I further suggested that he walk into the Attorney’s office withour prior notice and take a seat -the Attorney had to surface sometime!

    After much venting, he calmed down and agreed, but said he would do so next tip because he was not 100% sure that he could control himself then. I applauded this decision and persuaded him to leave the wrapped item with me. He did. That afternoon, before they left the island he came back and thanked me.

  • Let me finsh off that poem? Mrs Greene.

    Some 14 years ago a woman who shall rename nameless became embroiled in a matter where she was in a business financed by a bank, fully collateralized but the Bank messed up with the collateral much like it did with the McCintoshes and thousands others here.

    The bank chose one of its friendly lawyers who arranged with another teifing judge and by pure teifery the woman found herself without her properties, WHICH WERE NOT PART OF THE COLLATERAL!

    Incredible but true.

    THe woman then proceeded, over the course of 3 years, to engage the services of 3 different lawyers paying them no less than $3,000 between them, for them to have the matters heard and the judgement set aside

    None of the lawyers AFTER TAKING HER MONEY, did what they were paid to do

    The woman, 9 years ago went to the BBA and started the matter with that instutition and nothing happened at the BBA.

    The bank, by the way, falsified several documents when they went before that paid judge and said judge, proceeded to tek way everything from dat woman.

    Now I would ask the question Mrs Greene, in those circumstances, where that lawbiding woman, has been unfaired by the bank, the lawyers, the courts and judges, the BBA, and everyone including the dog,

    I want you to honestly tell me if that woman would not be better served with renting one of those Uzis that are on the GUN FOR HIRE schemes that the young “entrepreneurs” have in Bim today, and go to all three offices where the respective culprits work and mowing down all of them?

    Would she be right?

    About your story, I saw a Bank Manager do that the same thing to a client of hers one evening when a specific MP was at Parliament a Tuesday evening years ago and a man, who had been bilked by that politician, was going to kill her.

    The Bank Manager, who ironically was foreclosing on him, for the same bad deal, told him to put his gun away and go home to his children, which he did.

    but I humbly put it to you that sometimes “there is a time to sow and a time to reap…”

    One incident like that against these theiving lawyers, with a collins or a gun, is not so bad in the grand scheme of things you know…because then they will learn real quick, that they too can bleed and feel pain like us lesser humans

    One Incident and then fear sets in and they treat people like humans BUT UNTIL THEN WE THE PEOPLE ARE TREATED LIKE DOGS.

    May I again point out I have NEVER insulted GP’s mother. I was brought up better than that. I rarely used foul language and certainly do not insult people’s families.
    I can repeat what I have said, not a single word was, or was intended as, an insult. GP first made this assertion, but he has never said what was the insult. Others picked up on it. But thanks for your observation.
    BTW, he does not ‘insult’ me, if that is the intention he fails. I pity his bitterness and anger.
