CCH Verified Lawyers
About the Lawyers in Our Directory
CCH Verified Lawyers
The CCH Verified designation on Criminal Code Help is our way of highlighting lawyers who have passed our verification steps. Our goal is to simplify the process of finding reputable criminal lawyers for Canadians. Lawyers who have earned the CCH Verified badge will be prominently displayed in our directory, ensuring they are easily identifiable for users.
To hold the CCH Verified badge, lawyers must:
- Be in good standing with their provincial legal association.
- Have no ongoing disciplinary actions against them.
- Specialize in Criminal Law.
Every CCH Verified lawyer must reaffirm their good standing status each year during renewal. Although we encourage lawyers to inform us of any status changes during their subscription period, it's not mandatory. Our checks are performed annually, aligned with subscription renewals.
While our verification process is comprehensive, it neither guarantees the quality of a lawyer's service nor ensures the success of your case. We strongly encourage users to conduct their own research and due diligence. This may include checking the lawyer's status with their provincial legal association or using other means that the reader deems appropriate.
Lawyers Without CCH Verification
We also showcase a list of criminal lawyers not enrolled in our verification process. Their inclusion in the directory offers our users a more extensive selection of legal professionals in their vicinity. The absence of the CCH Verified badge does not imply inferiority; it simply indicates they have yet to participate in the CCH Verification step.
Do Your Research
While the CCH Verified directory listing is a helpful tool, it should not replace personal research when selecting a defence lawyer. We've created sections on our website to guide users on essential factors to consider when choosing legal representation.

It is the responsibility of the user to conduct their own research and due diligence when selecting a lawyer.
