Len Fishman, The Shyster (Divorce) Lawyer Of Winnipeg

Len Fishman, The Shyster (Divorce) Lawyer Of Winnipeg

THE DIRTY ARMY: When going through my recent divorce from my cheating wife, I contacted a good friend of mine for his advise. The friend has recommended a family law lawyer, LEN FISHMAN, who is a member of our Winnipeg Jewish community. Fishman has a downtown office (on Broadway Avenue), of where he works with his long-time partner, Terry Beley, and his young son, Noah Fishman. My friend only knew that Len Fishman acts as retainer for the Winnipeg Jewish Child and Family Service, and based on this alone thought that this lawyer might be a good choice for me. I hired Len Fishman and paid him dozens of thousands of dollars, and always in advance. From the get-go Len Fishman was rude, impatient, greedy and with no clear game plan as to my case. He was regularly not returning my calls, confusing facts of my case with other cases on his unorganized desk, dragging my matters forever, and finding any excuse he could to heavily overbill me. Eventually I realized that he also forget telling me that he missed a long waited court appearance as to my case, that he is in friendship with my ex-wife’s lawyer, and that the lawyer truly working on my case is not him but rather his son, a junior (and anyhow average-and-below) lawyer. I then went back to the friend who recommended Len Fishman, and after he inquired a bit more we have both learned that Len Fishman has actually only been awarded and kept his juicy contract with the Winnipeg Jewish Child and Family Service, to preform simple legal work for over 400 dollars per hour, as his wife is a member of the same book club with a member of the board of this well-funded agency… The friend apologized to me and suggested I fire Len Fishman, but as I paid so much already and as at that point of time Len Fishman warned me that his partner, Terry Beley, has strong ties to the Law Society (and so I stand no chance complaining to them), I felt compelled to keep him as my lawyer. I will always regret doing so, as when my case ended the wife kept the house in Tuxedo, in addition to half our cabin in Winnipeg Beach and the new BMW that I bought her out of my inheritance money (from my Baba) not long before our divorce. What a shyster, greedy and unethical, lawyer! Len Fishman has done nothing to help my situation, and I now know I am not his only disappointed client!! In fact, he only hurt and prolonged my case, and all along kept on wasting both my money and time!!! An ‘officer-of-the-court’ my asst…

    i also had a really bad experience with this lawyer. may I ask for the name of your ex-partner’s lawyer? I suspect it is the same person (if you can call her that) that my ex retained. They work out deals with each other to drag out files…one time she wins the next time he wins…you get my drift.

    This scum bag is such a piece of trash
    So dumb with offering deals and you agree to it. Secondly he proceeds to say it will be months befor it can be done.
    Absolutely an autistic lawyer if you ask mysel or anyone else.

    Sad but true… This is a constant thing on how Winnipeg & M.B courts work in family court, Child protection & Criminal procedings… most to all lawyers are tight/besties outside the office! Longer they drag it out the more they get paid… and they charge for every little thing right down to how many staples they use… Sad really…

    I found Len Fishman fantastic when I used him as my lawyer about a dozen years ago . He was intelligent, informed and timely in our dealings. didn’t overcharge me or anything. Sorry to hear about this experience

      He is now old and worn out. This much I do know. Perhaps it is time for him to consider retirement. And it was certainly a mistake by him to bring his son into his law firm. Not a lawyer I would ever rehire.
      I too suffered under his hand not that long ago.

        One of the better family lawyers in Winnipeg.

      People change. Even if it’s true…

    When I got divorced, it was my young stepdaughter -and not the lawyers- who helped me cope with the situation and eventually move on.

    Very true.
    I went through a somewhat same bad experience with this lawyer.
    I eventually replaced Fishman with a different firm, and then things got better for me.
    Famous guy in picture is much younger and better looking than the real thing…lol

      One day the police might raid my law firm too…

        Go Tapper Go…

      • Sam KatzApril 17, 2018 at 1:00 AM

        Tapper has done for me, in terms of cover up, more than all that Trump’s lawyer, Cohen, has done for him so far.
        If you are guilty, call him.

    Fishman does, though, have a hot (Russian) legal sexcretary…
    She should not let his fat son bother her no more. Instead, she should resign and come do some ‘work’ for me…lol

    When nature takes its course, I will probably get to see this sleazy lawyer and others of his kind at the place of where I’m now at (of where it is too hot to even just watch HBO or Netflix).

      My his husband actually loved lawyers and used them all the time.
