The catch 22 in “Best criminal lawyers Kamloops”

You might notice that most lawyers don’t advertise as “Best criminal lawyers Kamloops” or “Best criminal lawyer BC” and there’s a good reason for that.

The Law Society of BC, which governs the legal profession in BC, does not allow that type of wording in lawyer advertising. The Law Society’s website says that marketing by a lawyer—or approved by a lawyer—must not be false, inaccurate, unverifiable or misleading.

To market oneself as “Best criminal lawyers Kamloops” is generally unverifiable, even if the lawyer thinks it’s true.

The fact is, the “best criminal lawyer” is not a provable fact, such as is proving which detergent removed a stain in a lab.

So how do you choose a criminal lawyer?

Facing criminal charges is stressful and you might be tempted to select the one that describes themself as “Best criminal lawyer Kamloops.” However, choosing a criminal defence lawyer has real life consequences and needs careful consideration.

Take time to:

  1. Check lawyers’ websites;
  2. See what clients say about working with them and their character; and
  3. Find out about their experience in criminal law and reputation.
