The Embassy of Canada in Mexico does not assume any responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or firms whose names appear on the enclosed lists. In addition, the names are arranged alphabetically and the order in which they appear has no other significance. In Mexico, the title "Licenciado" (abbreviated as Lic) is used to indicate a professional person, and not necessarily an attorney. The terms "Bufete" and "Despacho" refer to a law office or a law firm.
You can verify the legal credentials of a Mexican attorney with the "Departamento de Autorizaciones" of the Secretaría de Educación Pública in Mexico City. Written requests should be faxed to (55) 5723-6647 or you can call (55) 5723-6650 to obtain their current email address.
