Another one bites the dust

Posted in The Job - General by 200

It’s a great week for scummy solicitors; what with scheming money-grabber Jim Beresford being barred from practising recently, another dubious operator has been suspended. Shahrokh Mireskandari also had his offices raided by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

I reported on him back in September, you may recall he is a friend of suspended Met Commander Ali Dizaei & represented Tarique Ghaffur in his recent dealings against the Met.

Mireskandari was convicted in America over a telemarketing scam for which he received 3 years’ probation. His legal qualifications have been in question since it was revealed he obtained a degree from a non existent university in Hawaii. He is currently under investigation over alleged dishonesty, accounting malpractice and other serious misconduct.

So another good day for watchers of pond-life everywhere.

    So I’m guessing that his problems are stemming from the bit in “other serious misconduct”
    The other two are run-of-the-mill solicitor stuff….

    It does make you wonder. Will he be representing himself?

    If his legal qualifications have been in question since it was revealed he obtained a degree from a non existent university in Hawaii. How can he Have any real legal qualifications? Anyone can, and apparently do, purchase ‘diplomas’, courtesy various vendors (well, my spam box is full of such crap everyday) but calling them anything but complete tripe would be being generous…I wonder where our ‘leaders’ got their qualifications from..
