Legal Information
 

The U.S. Embassy cannot provide legal assistance to American citizens in Haiti.  For assistance with any legal issues in Haiti, you are strongly encouraged to hire a Haitian lawyer.

This List of Attorneys (PDF 107 kb) is provided to aid U.S. citizens in need of legal advice or services within Haiti.  Although the Consular Section of the Embassy makes every effort to ensure that only reputable firms and individuals are included on this list and that the information provided is correct, the Embassy assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or firms on this list, or the accuracy of the information provided.  Additionally, fees are set solely between attorney and client, and the Embassy has no involvement or responsibility in this matter.  It is recommended, however, that the client insist upon a written contract stating exactly what the attorney is expected to do and for what fees. 

When legal services are required in a city other than Port-au-Prince, it is helpful to engage an attorney in Port-au-Prince who will in turn communicate with one of his or her correspondents in the smaller cities.

Should you have difficulty with an attorney, please provide the Consular Section with your complaint in writing.  This will aid us in ensuring that only reputable lawyers remain on this list. If you have corrections or additions to this list, they should also be submitted in writing.

The U.S. mailing address of the Consular section is:
