Lawyer Lookup

Please note: As the regulators of lawyers, the Law Society must remain objective and therefore cannot provide referrals. If you are looking to find a lawyer for the purposes of obtaining legal advice, click here.

Welcome to Lawyer Lookup. This tool contains information about BC lawyers.

Use the search tool below to find a BC lawyer's contact information, date the lawyer began practising in BC (call date) and current practising status. If a lawyer has a discipline history*, restrictions on his or her practice, or if there are any current regulatory proceedings, information will be displayed in the search results.

To find out if a lawyer has been disciplined by the Law Society as a result of a citation, you can also search the Law Society's Hearing decisions and admissions database. To find out if a lawyer is currently under citation, you can also check current citations and hearings.

The Law Society provides a list of all unauthorized practitioners since September 2003, including related court documents. Search the database
