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.

The U.S. Embassy cannot provide legal assistance to American citizens in Ghana. For assistance with any legal issues in Ghana, you are strongly encouraged to hire a Ghanaian lawyer.

This List of Attorneys (PDF 293 KB) is provided to aid U.S. citizens in need of legal advice or services within Ghana. Although the Consular Section of the Embassy makes every effort to ensure that only reputable firms and individuals are included on this list and that the information provided is correct, the Embassy assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or firms on this list, or the accuracy of the information provided. Additionally, fees are set solely between attorney and client, and the Embassy has no involvement or responsibility in this matter. It is recommended, however, that the client insist upon a written contract stating exactly what the attorney is expected to do and for what fees.

Should you have difficulty with an attorney, please provide the Consular Section with your complaint in writing.  This will aid us in ensuring that only reputable lawyers remain on this list. If you have corrections or additions to this list, they should also be submitted in writing.
