- Identity fraud X 3

MATSON HAS ADMITTED SOME OF HIS WRONGDOINGS TO THE ONTARIO LAW SOCIETY TRIBUNAL. (See attached Law Tribunal documents).
Thunder Bay lawyer Daniel Matson had his licence suspended as part of an interlocutory suspension on June 30, 2017. The law society said there are, “reasonable grounds for believing there is a significant risk of harm to members of the public, or the public interest in the administration of justice.”
The Law Society noted it received a judicial complaint on June 2, 2017 from the Superior Court of Justice, involving two separate client files. The complainant alleged Matson created two Superior Court Orders, as well as creating numerous false documents between February 1 and May 29.
In the evidence presented by the Law Society, another local lawyer became suspicious of the authenticity of a number of court documents, after being given them by a client. That lawyer then informed the Regional Senior Justice of the discovery.
That client became suspicious of documents he was given by Matson, after bringing a form to a local bank, and was told it was not genuine.
Daniel Matson was a partner at the Johansen Law Firm.
He is no longer working there.
His wife Gillian is a lawyer at the Carrel and Partners Law Firm. She remains in good standing with the Ontario Law Society. THERE ARE NO ALLEGATIONS AGAINST GILLIAN MATSON WITH THE ONTARIO LAW SOCIETY.
GILLIAN MATSON’S FATHER IS RETIRED JUSTICE PETER T. BISHOP OF DRYDEN.
JUSTICE BISHOP RETIRED 20 DAYS BEFORE THE SUSPENSION OF HIS SON IN LAW DANIEL MATSON.
Thunder Bay Courthouse – Inside Edition has been in contact with several alleged victims of Daniel Matson and has heard allegations of hundreds of thousands of dollars being defrauded from clients.
MATSON REMAINS FREE AND HAS A COURT DATE OF MARCH 29,2019 in Courtroom 105 at 1:30pm. It will be a remand to a later date. MATSON is unlikely to appear in court on that date and will most likely send a lawyer to represent him.
THUNDER BAY POLICE OFFICERS WORKING HARD AND STILL DOING FURTHER INVESTIGATION ON MATSON.
