Unauthorized Practitioner

Parent-Quinn, Chase

Other names: Parent, Charles David; Parent-Quinn, Charles

On November 17, 2016, Madam Justice Russell granted an injunction prohibiting Charles David Parent also known as Charles Parent-Quinn and Chase Parent-Quinn, of Surrey, from engaging in the practice of law, from representing himself as a lawyer and from commencing, prosecuting and defending proceedings in any court. In 2001, Parent had falsely represented himself as a lawyer and had performed various legal services with respect to a family law matter for a fee. After the Law Society’s involvement, Parent signed an undertaking whereby he agreed to abide by the provisions of the Legal Profession Act. In 2016, he breached his undertaking when he offered to appear as an advocate and to draft and file documents for a party before the Residential Tenancy Branch for a fee. In addition to the injunction, the court awarded the Law Society $3,500 in costs.
