Quebec City Attorneys
A list of Québec Consulate District-area attorneys is available from the Quebec Consular section (38KB PDF).
The Quebec City Consular District consists of the counties of Abitibi-West, Abitibi-East, St. Maurice, Trois-Rivieres, Nicolet, Wolfe, Frontenac, and all other counties to the north or east within the province. Other counties in the southwestern sector, although in the province, are part of the Consular districts of the U.S. Consulate General in Montréal or the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa. The Québec Consular district also includes all of the territory of Nunavut
The names on this list are arranged alphabetically by judicial districts. The order in which they appear has no other significance. While the names are selected with care, the Consulate General assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the following persons or firms. Despite Québec's language laws, almost all judges in Québec courts are bilingual. Parties to an action and witnesses in legal proceedings are allowed to use the language of their choice; either French or English. Most attorneys have a working knowledge of English. All firms listed in the attachments claim at least a working knowledge of English.
As part of its French heritage, the Province of Québec has notaries (notaires in French) who are distinct from lawyers and cannot appear in court, but can handle certain legal matters such as deeds of sale, wills, mortgages, non-contentious estates, etc. A listing of notaries is included after the list of lawyers.
