Lawyer and Paralegal Directory

Welcome to the Law Society Lawyer and Paralegal Directory. This directory lists lawyers and paralegals licensed by the Law Society. The Law Society regulates Ontario lawyers and paralegal licensees in the public interest and does not provide legal advice to members of the public. If you are looking for a lawyer referral service or a paralegal referral service, the Law Society Referral Service can help.

The directory displays the business contact information for most licensees. The business contact information contained in the directory has been provided to the Law Society by the lawyer or paralegal pursuant to their obligation under By-Law 8 to notify the Law Society after any change in contact information. If you are a lawyer or a paralegal and would like to modify your contact information, please use the Law Society Portal. Each listing includes the practising status of the lawyer or paralegal. If a lawyer or paralegal has a regulatory history, restrictions on their practice, or if there is a trusteeship, there will be information on this in the directory listing. Email addresses are displayed on the Lawyer and Paralegal Directory unless the lawyer or paralegal has chosen not to display their business email address.

You can choose to search the complete list of names in the directory or only the lawyer listings or paralegal listings. You can also narrow your results by performing an Advanced Search where you can search by name (first or last), Law Society Number, postal code, city or any combination of these. You can also search for lawyers and paralegals who offer legal services in French, who can communicate in languages other than English or French, or based on the area(s) of law/legal services they provide.

If you choose to find lawyers and/or paralegals based on location, you can do a proximity search by address and the results will include the nearest licensees to the location you entered, within a 10km radius. The results of a proximity search by address can further be filtered by distance up to a maximum distance of 25km.

If you receive too many results, or if no results are found, you may need to revise your search criteria. Consider completing fewer fields or checking your spelling/punctuation.

Results for area(s) of law/legal services and unbundling are only displayed for licensees in private practice who have chosen to display this information.

This directory includes the names of some former licensees of the Law Society. These include lawyers and paralegals who have surrendered their licence at their own request, as well as those whose licences have been revoked or surrendered for regulatory reasons. Information about former lawyers and paralegals is included in the directory for three years.

NOTE: If you are looking for information or documents from the files of a lawyer or paralegal who has retired, abandoned their practice, been suspended, had their licence revoked or otherwise stopped providing legal services, Trustee Services may be able to help you. Visit for information on how and where to search for legal documents in Ontario and access to the Law Society’s online inquiry form.
