Help with using Find a Lawyer

This Find a Lawyer service is for people wanting to find a lawyer who can provide legal services for them or someone else.

You can use this service to find the contact details for a particular lawyer or organisation who provides legal services to the public, or to find all lawyers who practise in a particular geographical area and/or a particular area of law.

If a lawyer is listed as a "barrister" he or she will, in some cases, need to be instructed by a barrister and solicitor - if that is the case the barrister will tell you and may help you arrange that.

This service does not list lawyers who are not in private practice, such as in-house lawyers. If you have already chosen a lawyer, you can confirm that the person you plan to consult holds a current practising certificate by searching the Register of Lawyers.
