High Profile Clients Using Online Services to Find Lawyers in Canada


More and more we are seeing high profile cases in Canada where clients are in need of legal counsel. And these individuals are not reaching for the Yellow Pages or listening to friends, family or colleagues, but they are going online to find experts and trusted lawyers in Canada.

Just this week, at LawyerLocate.ca Inc., we received a request for a Canadian lawyer from a person involved in this Manitoba judge controversy. This is, but one example of many high profile clients that have come to LawyerLocate.ca to seek quality legal counsel in Canada. In fact, a first-hand witness to the tragic Greyhound incident in Manitoba in 2008 also used our service to seek legal advice.

Certainly this demonstrates, in a very real way, that the internet has become a respected and trusted method to seek professional services by Canadians. And clearly, based on the number of referrals we have received in the past 10 years, there is an significant upward trend in the quantity and quality of the requests we are seeing. Having processed over 82,000 referrals to-date, we believe the change has come to Canada, and that the wave of online sourcing is here to stay.

Founder and President at LawyerLocate.ca Inc.
Natalie was spirited to start this company after a frustrating and poor personal experience when searching for a lawyer back in the late nineties. “I quickly realized that the tools available to assist someone in finding the right lawyer were grossly inadequate. Not only inadequate for the individual in need of a lawyer, but also inadequate for the lawyers in search of new clients. There had to be a better way to connect clients and lawyers in a more efficient manner – without wasting everybody’s time and effort”, explains Natalie.

Natalie brings a passion to the business that ensures the entire LawyerLocate.ca team strives to improve the service for both lawyers and the general public. To that end, she is committed to ongoing communication with our members and welcomes and relies on clients’ input to continually evolve the service to make it better for all.
