Frequently asked questions
Do I need a lawyer in my city?
Maybe. Regulations for employment law and corporate law vary from province to province, so a local lawyer is recommended for questions relating to these areas. Other legal needs, including commercial dealings, immigration, and intellectual property are regulated federally and you can work with a lawyer from anywhere in Canada.
What do I do if I need a lawyer in my province or city?
If you need a lawyer in your province or city we will match you according to your needs.
Will I be paired with an out-of-province lawyer for my legal needs with Goodlawyer?
It depends. If your legal issue has to do with protecting your intellectual property, then you might be paired up with a lawyer in Toronto. Most of Canada’s intellectual property lawyers are based in Toronto and you will need to be aware of the time zone difference.
Is a lawyer necessary for everything I do legally for my business?
What if 15 minutes of advice is not enough time?
If it looks like your call is going to take more than 15 minutes, your lawyer will let you know so that you can either extend the call or wrap the conversation up. If you’re having a productive discussion and decide to continue, it’s a flat rate of $39 per additional 15 minutes.
