Protecting Your Legal Rights Within Regulatory Proceedings
Within our heavily regulated society, many professional services vocations are highly regulated, including professions involving realty agents, real estate brokers, mortgage brokers, insurance brokers, among many others. Accordingly, issues ranging from licencing disputes to disciplinary proceedings, among other things, are common and, where government, or quasi-government, regulators are involved, can seem daunting and overbearing. In particular, allegations against professionals that may be reviewed within the context of disciplinary proceedings can have serious implications on career and income earning abilities. These matters may include behavioural concerns, accusations of breaching rules of conduct, failing to comply with prescribed practice regulations, among other things.
Reznik Legal Services preserves and protects the rights of accused professionals in matters involving:
- The Real Estate Council of Ontario;
- The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario;
- The Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council;

- The many more regulatory bodies within Ontario.
Protecting Your Rights
When allegations are first raised, avoid delay by promptly seeking legal assistance. Early investigations, including advocacy during the investigative process may help to ensure against overstep and abuse of power by governing authorities who may use improper tactics and pressure in an attempt to reach beyond what is necessary and appropriate. Furthermore, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms affords all persons the right to legal representation when allegations are raised. Additionally, with the risk of severe sanctions from a body that governs your vocation, and thereby places your capacity to earn a living at risk, your emotions and fears may get in the way of serving your best interests. Reznik Legal Services is ready and able to objectively remain calm and strong on your behalf.
