Former Surrey lawyer Sanda Ling King has admitted to professional misconduct in the face of discipline proceedings. King is a former member and has undertaken not to apply for reinstatement to the Law Society prior to April 23, 2030.

King misappropriated a total of $63,829.52 on 415 occasions by reversing stale-dated cheques and paying the reversed amounts into her firm’s general account and paying unresolved balances held in trust to the firm’s general account. Prior to a compliance audit by the Law Society, she participated in creating 197 false statements of account to justify the misappropriations. In two trust reports to the Law Society, she incorrectly answered a question that asked if her practice had outstanding stale-dated cheques when she knew or ought to have known the answer was not true.

Should King wish to apply for reinstatement to the Law Society when her undertaking expires in 2030, she will have to satisfy the Law Society’s Credentials Committee that she is of sufficiently good character and repute to practise law in BC.

A summary of the facts, and the terms of her undertaking not to practise law in BC or apply for reinstatement to the Law Society for 10 years, will be made available shortly.
