A NEW BRUNSWICK LAWYER LAW SOCIETY REFERRAL MAY NOT BE WHAT YOU EXPECT:
New Brunswick Law Society referrals are a gamble, based on a next olive out of the jar system A bored telephone clerk asking you where you want a lawyer. She then looks at her list and takes the name of the next lawyer whose turn has come up. You get one name when you should be talking to a few lawyers before you choose one.
There is no checking of skills, suitability or experience. Lawyers using law societies referrals pay a fee and when it is their turn they get the referral.
