“The profession of an attorney, as of any other officer of the court, is an honourable profession which demands complete honesty, reliability and integrity from its members; and it is the duty of the [Law] Society to ensure, as far as it is able, that its members measure up to the high standards demanded of them. A client who entrusts his affairs to an attorney must be able to rest assured that that attorney is an honourable man [or woman] who can be trusted to manage his affairs meticulously and honestly.” These were the words of the appeal court in 1998.
