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 Embassy maintains a list of local lawyers (PDF 133 KB) by specialty.  You may download the list from this page or request a hard copy at the American Citizen Services unit.  Please note the Embassy is prohibited from providing legal advice.

If you have been arrested or know of a U.S. citizen that has been arrested in Peru, please read the information on our Arrest of a U.S. Citizen page.
