The Lawyer Referral Service is available to individuals who require assistance in obtaining a lawyer. Lawyers who wish to be enrolled in our database register annually and state the areas of law in which they prefer to practice.
The people who contact our service are offered the name of one lawyer who practices in a particular area of law. The individuals can then contact the lawyer to arrange a consultation for up to 30 minutes at a nominal charge. PLIAN maintains a regular evaluation process by requesting both the client and the lawyer to complete an evaluation form.

The office hours for the LRS and LIL are 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday through Friday.

However, before sending an e-mail to PLIAN, users should understand that, due to their nature, electronic communications can be intentionally or unintentionally viewed by others or forwarded to others, and are therefore inherently not private. In addition, addressing errors, system malfunctions, and system management may result in communications being viewed and/or read by other individuals and/or system administrators. PLIAN is not responsible if the user still seeks to use e-mail to contact us despite the fact that e-mail is inherently not private.
Also please be advised that PLIAN has a legal duty to report to authorities if a person discloses any information which indicates that a child is or may be in need of protection. There is also a duty to report for us to report to authorities if a person discloses any information which indicates that an adult is a “neglected adult” under provincial legislation.
