Meet With a Lawyer Certificate Program
This is a service operated by the Law Society of Yukon for members of the public. It is to help you determine if you have a legal problem for which you need the services of a lawyer by providing you with some basic legal information.
A Meet with a Lawyer Certificate does not entitle you to:
- have legal work completed;
- get a second opinion on advice you may have already received;
- have documents reviewed, explained and/or notarized; or
- obtain precedents from the lawyer.
The lawyer is not responsible under the Meet with a Lawyer Certificate for doing any legal work or taking any further action on your behalf beyond the one half-hour initial consultation.
If you would like that lawyer to represent you after the initial consultation and the lawyer agrees to represent you, the fee and retainer arrangements and instructions will be a private matter between you and the lawyer.
You are responsible for contacting the lawyer of your choice from a list and making the appointment to see that lawyer.
When you make the appointment be sure that the lawyer is aware that you are on a certificate from the Law Society and when you attend at the lawyer’s office, take the certificate with you and present it to the lawyer at the beginning of the consultation.
You may obtain the list of participating lawyers and the certificate from the Law Society of Yukon office at:
#304 – 104 Elliott Street
Or by calling: (867) 668-4231
The cost for this consultation is $30.00 (including GST) and is payable to the lawyer at the consultation. If you are calling from outside of Whitehorse, you can call collect.
