A Hamilton lawyer is facing a disciplinary hearing at the Law Society of Upper Canada on Friday after an investigation into his professional conduct.

The society alleges Demetrius Kotsakis failed to cooperate with a spot audit of his practice.

A filing, submitted on Jan. 17, also claims that he neglected to respond to follow-up letters, e-mails and phone calls from the society about the audit, and that he failed to keep proper records of his law practice.

Law Society of Upper Canada spokesperson said she could not comment on the case directly. However, she said that a lawyer who is found to have violated the provincial Law Society Act or the body's own provisions could be served with "reprimands, suspensions, restrictions on practice, and fines."

"Disbarment is not possible" in Kotsakis's case, Hall noted.

CBC Hamilton made multiple calls to Kotsakis seeking comment. His voicemail was full, and he did not respond to text messages requesting an interview.
