TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2021 /CNW/ - The legal services business of revoked paralegal Benito Zappia is subject to trusteeship orders of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. The Law Society was appointed as trustee of all of Mr. Zappia's legal services businesses under these orders and is in the process of taking custody of client files and materials relating to his practice, including the following businesses:
We Win or It's Free
We Win or It's Free Marketing
We Win or It's Free Consulting
We Win or It's Free Traffic Tickets
We Win Traffic Tickets
While this practice is being recovered, clients of these businesses may be unaware that their traffic ticket matters are not being spoken to before the Courts.
All clients or former clients of Mr. Zappia or any of the 'We Win' businesses may contact the Law Society's Trustee Services department at WeWinZappiaTrusteeship@lso.ca or 416-947-3366 or 1-800-668-7380.
These businesses continued to operate despite the suspension and subsequent revocation of Mr. Zappia's licence to provide legal services, requiring the Law Society to engage the trusteeship provisions of the Law Society Act in order to protect the public.
