Find a lawyer
The Association des avocats et avocates de province and the regional Barreau sections in Montreal, Québec City and Longueuil offer referral services by area of law to help you find a lawyer.
Note These referrals do not constitute a recommendation from the Barreau du Québec.
Although the Barreau has some 26,000 members, not all of them are registered for these services, only those who wish to participate and who register voluntarily (approximately 2,000 lawyers). They offer the first 30 minutes of the initial consultation at a reduced rate and, in certain cases, at no cost. Here is the contact information to find a lawyer near your home or workplace.

If you live in or around Longueuil

If you live in the area of Québec City, the Beauce or Montmagny

Make sure you and your lawyer clearly understand the mandate you wish to give him and the cost of his services. In many cases, the initial consultation can last more than 30 minutes. It is important to have an agreement with the lawyer regarding the price of any extra time spent with him during this consultation.
