Many people in foreign countries seek consultancy and advocacy services for the resolution of their legal proceedings in Turkey. Finding a lawyer is very important because it is a professional activity that focuses on individual solutions and can differ for everyone. The choice of a lawyer is very important at this point. If you find the best lawyer for you, your lawyer will understand your problems, create the shortest and most advantageous ways to solve them, and always look out for your interests.
There are several ways to find a lawyer in Turkey:
- Bar Associations: Each city in Turkey has a Bar Association that maintains a list of registered lawyers in the area. You can search for the Bar Association in the city where you need legal assistance and ask for a referral.
- Internet Search: You can also search for lawyers in Turkey on search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo. However, be sure to verify the lawyer’s credentials
However there are some risks involved in working with a lawyer from a foreign country. Because there are many people who introduce themselves as lawyers and gain unfair advantage by cheating. You can identify the people who actually practice law in Turkey by making inquiries on the bar association plates.

- Referrals: You can ask for referrals from friends, family, or colleagues who have used the services of a lawyer in Turkey before.
- Embassy: You can contact your embassy or consulate in Turkey for a referral.
A lawyer should know your language to understand your problems, but even if they don’t, they should work with sworn translators who speak that language like a native speaker.
The attorney’s fee is determined before the job starts and you do not face overpayment.

Attorney fees can be accepted with Western Union for ease of payment. A payment receipt suitable for your payment is issued and sent to you by e-mail.
