Help from Lawyers and Paralegals

Don Valley Community Legal Services offers a private lawyer and paralegal referral service.

If our office is unable to provide the appropriate legal information, we may give you the names of three lawyers or paralegals who may be able to help you.

Our office is not responsible for the quality of the services you get from these lawyers or paralegals, or the fees that they charge. This service is offered as a convenience only, and in no way implies that we endorse or recommend their services.

You are under no obligation to contact the lawyers or paralegals we tell you about. You can contact any other private lawyer or paralegal or contact the Law Society of Ontario Referral Service.

If you are a licensed lawyer or paralegal with the Law Society of Ontario and wish to be on our Referral Service list, please contact our office at 416-441-1764, ext. 22 or email

The Steps to Justice website has information about getting help from lawyers, paralegals and other common legal problems.
