The Law Society of Saskatchewan does not provide legal advice to members of the public or client referral services to specific lawyers by location or specialty. If you need to speak with a lawyer, please consult your phone book or use the “Finding Legal Assistance” feature of this website.
The Finding Legal Assistance feature allows lawyers to be searched by firm/organization, city or first or last name. A lawyer’s contact information is available via this service which allows you to contact lawyers directly. The Finding Legal Assistance directory includes the ability to search for a lawyer by practice area. This does not represent an endorsement by the Law Society of Saskatchewan that a particular lawyer will be an expert in any area of law listed or a guarantee that the lawyer will accept a particular client file in a listed area of law. Areas of law are self-declared by lawyers to make it easier for clients to locate lawyers offering services in specific areas. The Law Society of Saskatchewan does not audit the areas of law selected by lawyers to ensure competence or expertise in the listed areas. Consumers of legal services should take their own steps to confirm a lawyer’s level of experience in their specific area of need.
This directory searches lawyers who are members of the Law Society of Saskatchewan who are currently entitled to practice law. The directory does not include inactive, former, suspended, disqualified, disbarred members, or students-at-law. Users should be aware that membership data can change quickly. While the Law Society of Saskatchewan endeavours to keep the database current, it does not guarantee complete accuracy. If you have searched for a specific lawyer and they do not appear, please call 306-569-8242 to check that lawyer’s status.
If you cannot afford a lawyer, you may be able to find one who is paid through Legal Aid Saskatchewan or through a pro bono assistance program. “Pro bono” means professional work undertaken voluntarily and without payment. If you qualify, Legal Aid Saskatchewan may provide a staff lawyer or pay a private lawyer to help you. Even if you do not qualify for legal aid, Legal Aid Saskatchewan may be able to give you advice or information about where to get help. Most legal aid offices have brochures describing their services in more detail.
Legal Aid Saskatchewan provides legal services in the areas of family and criminal law to low-income individuals. With offices in the Battlefords, Estevan, La Ronge, Meadow Lake, Melfort, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Current and Yorkton, eligible clients can find an office wherever they live in Saskatchewan.
