(Legal Info Nova Scotia's Lawyer Referral Service)
The Lawyer Referral Service is just one way to get started with finding a lawyer. Here are some other ways to find a lawyer in Nova Scotia.
Do you need to hire a lawyer in private practice? Don't know which lawyer to choose?
We may be able to help. Contact the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia for legal information, and to see if we may be able to refer you to a lawyer in private practice who is a member of the Legal Information Society's Lawyer Referral Service.
Lawyers who are part of the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia's Lawyer Referral Service are not free (pro bono) lawyers. Lawyer Referral Service members offer an initial consultation of up to 30 minutes for a fee of no more than $20 plus tax. Regular fees, or fees worked out directly with the lawyer, will be charged after the initial consultation.
Please note that the lawyer is not expected to do legal work for you during the initial 30 minute consultation, just review your legal problem and talk about options you may have to solve your legal problem, and how much it may cost to have the legal work done.
