Canadian Anti-Hate Network
The Law Society of Ontario has concluded its tribunal proceeding against Everett Ross Field, a licenced paralegal who ran a neo-Nazi social media account and appeared on racist podcasts bragging about using the law to intimidate others.
The LSO found Field failed to act with integrity during being investigated last year for his fascist history.
After the Canadian Anti-Hate Network identified Field as “Red Serge” in December 2020, the LSO launched an investigation into Field’s conduct, specifically for engaging in discriminatory/racist/misogynistic conduct, incivility, and engaging in conduct that was otherwise dishonourable.
However, ultimately the LSO went after Field for lying to them about his identity as Red Serge, rather than his behaviour.
“Between February and August 2021, the respondent misled the Law Society during its investigation into his identity as ‘Red Serge,’” the Law Society wrote in a release, “by falsely denying this identity and any awareness of the activities in which ‘Red Serge’ engaged, and thereby failed to act with integrity contrary to Rule 2.01 of the Paralegal Rules of Conduct.”
As a result of its findings, the panel is suspending Field’s licence to provide legal services by four months, “effective immediately.” He will also have to abide by a series of guidelines for paralegals who have been suspended.
After his suspension, he has been ordered to complete five hours of annual Law Society provided Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) training for the next three years.
“The respondent shall pay costs to the Law Society in the amount of $3,000 on or before November 1, 2024. Starting November 2, 2024, interest shall accrue on any unpaid costs at 4% per year,” the decision adds.
Attempts to reach Field for comment via a phone number listed for his business went without response.
As CAHN has previously reported, Field incorporated his legal education into his fascism. As a guest on the now-defunct neo-Nazi podcast, This Hour Has 88 Minutes, Field used his legal expertise to "red pill" the hosts on hate speech laws, and lay out the boundaries of "what you can and cannot say."
Later in the episode, Field boasted about using his knowledge of the law to his advantage when confronted about his use of hateful language.
“When you work in the legal field like I am, and you want to be as offensive as I am, you can very easily hold people over the fire. I've got a few guys I can basically blackmail with assault charges. Because I said the n-word at a bar and they decided to try and punch me... Well now I get to basically bend them over a barrel, fist them up the ass, legally speaking of course, and all of it translates to money,” he said on the show.
“It's hilarious that I'm doing the opposite of the Jew move. Normally it's like 'oh my god you said n-----,' but I get to say it and then bend them over because of it. Most of these guys have heeb [an insult against Jewish people] last names too. So it's just beautiful, the way I'm twisting the legal system. I anglo'd them … When you out-Jew a Jew.”
As a former president of both the Mohawk College Conservative Club and the McMaster Conservatives campus association, Field used his connections at both schools to help organize the Hamilton Conservative Christmas Formal in 2017, to which he repeatedly invited his friends in the fascist Canadian Super Players Discord server, provided they not behave in an “overtly fash” way.
As a student in both the “pre-law” program at McMaster University, and then in the paralegal program at Mohawk College, Field bragged in the CSP server about his on-campus “activism” and expressions of fascism.
On one occasion, he gleefully posted in the CSP chat about his professor while sitting in her class: “She's bitching about one of our postering campaigns. We did it, boys. I have to contain my glee. So hard not to have a shit-eating grin [right now]."
In November 2021, CAHN reported on the discourse of Canadian neo-Nazis during the deadly white supremacist “Unite The Right” attack in Charlottesville in 2018. For his part, Field told members of CSP who were attending that he hoped they “bashed some antifa skulls.”
Based on our investigations, human rights lawyer and CAHN board member Richard Warman submitted a formal complaint that Everett Field did not at the time of his licensing and does not now as a fully licensed paralegal, meet the “good character” requirement to remain licensed as a paralegal member of the Law Society of Ontario.
