Lawyer Who Practiced in Fort Faces Law Society Citations
Mark Henry DeMong, a lawyer who formerly operated a practice in Fort Saskatchewan, faces a Law Society of Alberta hearing on seven citations brought against him.
A public hearing regarding those citations is scheduled for November 5th and 6th at the Law Society of Alberta’s offices in Edmonton.
According to the Society’s website, it is alleged that DeMong knowingly practiced law in Alberta while not authorized to do so; misrepresented his professional status to other persons; misled others as to his entitlement to practice law in Alberta; and failed to respond to the Law Society in a timely manner.
It is also alleged that DeMong breached the accounting rules of the Law Society of Alberta by failing to make necessary filings and failed to serve a number of clients in a conscientious, diligent and efficient manner.
DeMong formerly operated a law practice in Lloydminster.
Apparently, this is not the first time DeMong has faced disciplinary action as a lawyer.
According to the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix, in April of 2008, DeMong was suspended by the Law Society of Saskatchewan, for allegedly failing to file reports.
