If you want to talk to a lawyer but don’t know any, ask your friends, neighbours, a community leader, or anyone else you trust to suggest a lawyer. Ask friends who have had a similar type of legal problem. It is important to choose the right lawyer for your legal problem. The best references generally are other people who have used that lawyer. You can also look in the Yellow Pages of the telephone directory, under “Lawyers”. Lawyers and law firms in your community are listed in alphabetical order.
The Law Society website offers a list of lawyers licensed to practice in New Brunswick. Look under “Lawyer Search” on the navigation bar. You can check a lawyer’s status or search for a lawyer by city.
You do not need to commit to a lawyer after meeting with them. You can see as many lawyers as you like before you hire one. You can ask your lawyer for a consultation before committing to them. During this consultation you will provide the lawyer with details of your situation, and they will inform you what your options are.
