Legal Assistance

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

This information sheet was revised in May, 2019, and is subject to change without notice. If you notice any inaccuracies, please inform the American Citizen Services Unit.

The U.S. Embassy cannot become involved in private legal disputes, such as those between you and a Belarusian citizen. In these circumstances, we recommend you retain an attorney. The Consular Section maintains a list of local attorneys for your convenience.

This list of attorneys and law firms is provided by the American Embassy as a convenience to United States citizens. It is not meant to be a complete list of attorneys in Belarus, and the absence of an attorney from the list is in no way a reflection on competence. Inclusion on the list is based primarily on the attorneys having provided the Embassy with information on their background, practice and foreign language capability.

The American Embassy in Minsk assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or facilities listed. Fees and the legal services to be provided are a matter for agreement solely between the individual and his attorney.
