Generally when you call a law society referral service, you get the next lawyer on the list based on where you live. Take it or Leave it. They will only give you one name and that even could be a disbarred lawyer who has been reinstated or a lawyer who has stolen vast sums of money or worse. Yes, law societies even reinstate disbarred lawyers.

 

The Law Society of BC says that law society referrals are a conflict of interest and so did not offer one until recently  Strangely they started offering referrals recently despite their belief that it is a conflict of interest.

 

Other law societies, especially the LAW SOCIETY OF ONTARIO , are not so open.

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?

 

You also need to know if there are any complaints against any paralegal or lawyer, any discipline history, or suspension or any bad reviews and if they are in good standing.

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.
