Attorney Donald Silversides British Columbia, CAN; one of the Good Guys


The Law Society of British Columbia presented Brian Kaminski with a law license in 1971 after he graduated from the University of British Columbia School of Law.


In one matter, Donald was a member of a Disciplinary Committee that investigated and then recommended punishment for the egregious misconduct of attorney Brian Kaminski who admitted to stealing over $33,000 for his former law firm. Additional facts regarding Kaminski can be found by visiting the URL listed at the end of this article.


After the majority of the Committee voted to punish Kaminski’s thefts, Donald put forth a stinging dissent. (Ian Mulgrew) In his dissent, Donald said in part:

  • “Knowingly taking monies from someone else without their permission is always wrong.”
  • “A lawyer who misappropriates funds betrays the fundamental precepts of trust and honesty underlying the legal profession, and such misconduct can never be tolerated or excused.”
  • “This was very serious misconduct, and there were very few mitigating factors, and those were minor in comparison to his wrongful acts.”
  • “Mr. Kaminski’s misconduct requires clear and unequivocal denunciation.”
  • “In my view, disciplinary action consisting of a three-month suspension of Mr. Kaminski is woefully inadequate in the circumstances of this matter and is neither appropriate nor acceptable.”

Donald went on to opine that Kaminski should have been disbarred.


Congrats to attorney Donald Silversides for displaying the courage and fortitude to tell the truth when it comes to attorney’s that find it acceptable to engage in grand larceny.


As we speak (ca. February 2019), Brian practices with Silversides, Merrick & McLeanat 217 3rd Avenue West in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.
