On September 16, 2016, Madam Justice Brown granted an injunction prohibiting Nguyen Phuong Nguyen, a.k.a. Win Wen Nguyen and Nguyen Phoung Nguyen, d.b.a. Utopia Enterprises International Law Group, Utopia Enterprises, LLC, Mystific Global Incorporate and ‘www.utopia-enterprise.com’, of Burnaby, BC and Seattle, Washington, from engaging in the practice of law, from commencing, prosecuting or defending proceedings on behalf of others and from representing himself as a lawyer, attorney or in any other manner that connotes that he is capable or entitled to practise law. Claiming to be a lawyer, Nguyen purported to defend one “client” in a criminal matter and offered to provide immigration advice and services to other clients for fees. In the end, Nguyen’s legal services appear to have been illusory. The court ordered Nguyen to pay restitution to his victims in the amount of $8,135 and to pay costs to the Law Society in the amount of $3,922.70.
