Reference Checks

 

Ask CanLaw for a Reference Check Before You Hire or Retain a Lawyer in Canada. You need to check the reputation of the law office and lawyers before you provide a retainer to hire any lawyer or paralegal.

 

There is not much point in asking us after you have hired some lawyer, is there?

CanLaw is proudly independent and NOT AFFILIATED IN ANY WAY WITH ANY LAW SOCIETY ANYWHERE.

Asking a law society to help is like asking a snake not to bite you.

We are NOT lawyers. We caution all consumers to be very careful in dealing with any Law Society since they represent lawyers only. They do not represent you the client.  CanLaw provides legal information and resources. CanLaw never provides legal advice.
