Notice of Disbarment - Edward Boomer
On February 21, 2012, a Resignation Committee of the Benchers of the Law Society of Alberta granted the application of Edward Boomer to resign, pursuant to section 61 of the Legal Profession Act, R.S.A. 2000, c. L-8, and Rule 92 of the Rules of the Law Society of Alberta, effective immediately. Mr. Boomer is therefore disbarred. Mr. Boomer was a suspended member of the Law Society. He resides in Edmonton, Alberta, and practised in Edmonton from July 20, 1987 until March 31, 2009, when his membership was suspended for non-payment of fees.
Mr. Boomer failed to obtain instructions from his clients, failed to serve his clients in a conscientious manner, deceived his clients by intentionally concealing important facts and occurrences from them, failed to tell his clients of material errors in his representation of them, and engaged in conduct lacking in integrity.
Mr. Boomer admitted facts to support these allegations in the attached signed Statement of Facts dated February 21, 2012.
The Resignation Committee directed that Mr. Boomer pay the actual costs of the discipline proceedings and the resignation application, estimated at $13,385.30, prior to any application for re-admission.
