- Ask friends and family for names of lawyers they have dealt with; or
- Check the Yellow Pages under "Lawyers"; or
- Phone the Law Society of Alberta Referral Service at 1-800-661-1095 (in Alberta only) or 403-228-1722 in Calgary. For general inquiries call Dial-A-Law at 1-800-332-1091 (in Alberta only).
While representing yourself is also a possibility, it is almost never a good idea. Before you decide to handle your own case you should at least have an initial interview with a lawyer.
