Whether you're dealing with a family situation, a latent defect, a dismissal, a rental problem or a lawsuit, a lawyer, a mediator or a arbitrator can help you. Consult the referral services to find the lawyer you need, near your work or home, for the area of law you are dealing with.

How to find a lawyer?

It is important to meet with the right lawyer for your situation. He will be able to guide you through each step of the process. Here is how to find him.


The referrals below are not recommendations from the Barreau du Québec.

  1. Analyze your situation and clarify your needs

    First, ask yourself some questions about your situation:
    Is it urgent? What area of law does your situation involve? What is your purpose in consulting a lawyer? Could your situation be settled through mediation?

  2. Find a lawyer or lawyer-mediator in your region

    Referral services 

    Referral services by area of law are offered to help you find a lawyer who will provide you with information, advice or legal opinion.

    Find a lawyer-mediator

    To settle a conflict between two individuals or two companies, whether in family, civil or commercial law, it is not always necessary to resort to the courts. A lawyer-mediator can help you!

    Find a lawyer-arbitrator

    Arbitration is a private dispute resolution process that excludes the courts of law. It generally proceeds more quickly than a trial and is economical and confidential. One of his main advantages is the possibility of choosing the arbitrator or arbitrators who will render a decision for all kinds of situations in most fields of law, excluding family law.

    Find a lawyer who handles workplace psychological harassment investigations

    A lawyer who handles investigations of psychological harassment in the workplace will determine the admissibility of your complaint, handle the investigation and prepare an investigation report providing guidance for the implementation of the recommended measures.

    Find a lawyer certified for the purpose of recognizing an assistant to a person of full age

    A certified lawyer can file applications for the recognition of an assistant to a person of full age with the Public Curator who will make a final decision whether or not to recognize an assistant.

    Urgence avocat

    Every person is entitled to make a phone call to a lawyer. If the person does not know any lawyers, the police officer must direct the person to the right resource. This free legal consultation service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Those who qualify for legal aid are accepted.

  3. Verify the status of the lawyer selected

    You have chosen a particular lawyer, but before dealing with him, check whether he is a member in good standing of the Barreau du Québec and whether he has previously had disciplinary complaints filed against him.
