Lawyer disbarred

 

IMG_8060

 

An attorney-at-law charged with stealing his client’s money has been disbarred.

This morning the Court of Appeal ruled that Therold Fields could no longer practice law in Barbados.

Back in 2008, Fields was charged with stealing three sums of money from Patricia Simpson of London, England over a two-year period.

The sums included BDS$5.000, 20,000 pounds sterling in one instance and in another 112,000 pounds sterling.

The court ordered Fields to repay $BDS 601,000 with eight per cent interest from October 2008 until the judgment is satisfied.

    “The court ordered Fields to repay $BDS 601,000 with eight per cent interest from October 2008 until the judgment is satisfied.” This is amazing when you really examine the time scale. He was charged in 2008. Is it that it took 7 years for a judgement or did he just not make amends even till now? If the client is still it compensated isn’t this desirous of another more serious charge. A tale of 2 Barbados once again

    A lot of them do it and want this doing to them in addition to some serious prison time.

    Many of the lawyers in Barbados do this or delay paying their clients money they’re rightfully entitled to for months and even years.

    There should be a minimum 5 year sentence at least for lawyers caught doing this. If they don’t pay up, 10 years.

    Again the facts here are not clear, and so one cannot really determine if he was fairly treated when compared to what was done in the Case of Mr.Speaker Carrington. the only date mentioned for this case was 2008 while Mr.Carrington Had His Client’s Money from about 2000. if you have a client’ Money for 14 years can that be Classified as Theft, when on the declaration of the Client they were trying to get the Money from you, but to no avail, so is Mr Carrington’s Case any different from Mr.Therold Fields’ case, or is that Mr.Carrington has Friends in Higher Places ??? You be the Judge.

    My cousin’s mom chose a particular attorney to sell her land three years ago, he took her money to do the transaction and she continued to pay him even though he did nothing. He told her the land would be sold for $375 Thou. Her son came in from the States and he got another Attorney a couple weeks ago. This Attorney pretended to be a buyer and called the office and asked the price of the land. She was told $675 Thou. She asked for an appointment to see the land and took my cousin’s son. She asked him if the amount cannot be reduced and he told her that the owner might give a reduction but he has to check with her. My cousin is old and I guess he was stalling so she could die and he could claim the land since the son had nothing pertaining to the land. He was so very upset when the other Attorney requested the contents of the file he had on the land.
