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.
