The Lawyer Directory is a search tool that lets you find a lawyer based on certain criteria. People can match their legal needs by searching for a lawyer by name, firm, location, area(s) of practice, language(s) spoken, gender, and whether a lawyer offers limited scope retainers.
A lawyer’s profile will display any discipline history dating back to January 1, 2015. To find discipline history before this date, use this website’s search tool or click Lawyer Report Request on the left side of this page.
The Law Society’s Lawyer Referral service helps you connect with a lawyer. After you provide information on your legal issue, a member of the Law Society’s Customer Service team will provide contact information for up to three lawyers that may help meet your needs. You can speak to one, two or all three of the lawyers.
The first half-hour of conversation with the lawyer is unbilled and should be used to discuss your legal issues, explore your options, evaluate potential costs and help determine if the lawyer is a good fit for your legal issue. Please mention you got their contact information from Lawyer Referral to ensure that your first half-hour is free.
Please remember that lawyers will not provide free legal advice, and the Lawyer Referral service will only connect you with a lawyer, not provide advice.
Please Note: Lawyer Referral Service has received a number of inquiries from members of the public seeking legal advice or clarification about the current public health measures in effect due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including mandatory vaccination policies and the Restrictions Exemption Program. Law Society and Lawyer Referral Service does not provide legal advice and cannot provide an assessment of your particular issue. Lawyer Referral Service is experiencing a high volume of phone calls and emails at this time and it may take some time to respond to your inquiry.
Lawyer Referral is intended to connect Albertans with lawyers who voluntarily registered with the service. The Law Society does not endorse these lawyers.
NOTE: Lawyer Referral is a popular service and it may take some time to get through to the operator. There are other legal information resources that may be able to assist you. To view these options, visit Legal Information Resources. You can also view a listing of Approved Legal Services Providers, approved providers that deliver pro bono legal services to the public, under our Public Resources page.
If you are a lawyer looking to be listed in the lawyer referral program, please fill out the Application to be Enrolled on Lawyer Referral (Form 8-2) and return it to Customer Service.
