I have the winning lottery ticket. Will your process work for me?

It depends. We will look at your situation during an initial free and confidential consultation and we will let you know if we can help you. If we cannot help you do this successfully, then you pay us nothing and you can claim your winnings yourself in accordance with the rules set out by the lottery commission.

How much do your services cost?

There will be no upfront fees for the services of Jackpot LawyerTM. Our fees will be contingent on our success and will be based on a small percentage of your winnings: this will be the price of anonymity with your windfall of wealth.

What is the “lottery commission” you keep mentioning?

We refer to the “lottery commission” generically as the lottery authority in your jurisdiction that we can serve. These are the Western Canada Lottery Corporation, British Columbia Lottery Corporation, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, and Atlantic Lottery Corporation. Those organizations are members of the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation, which is the authority that manages and conducts national lotteries in Canada.

Are you trying to scam or trick the lottery commission?

No. We will pursue only legal means and work within the lottery commission's rules in serving you.

Can you help me if I’m not from Alberta?

Jackpot LawyerTM can serve clients across Canada, except for those in Quebec and the Territories.

Why use a lawyer to stay anonymous?

Lotteries want to publish your identity for various reasons. While a non-lawyer can also protect your identity under confidentiality agreements, those confidentiality agreements can be subject to attack in an attempt to get a Court to force disclosure. A lawyer is under the highest duty recognized by the Courts to protect a client’s identity and communications between them. Please read this post to learn more about solicitor-client privilege and why it matters in protecting a client's identity.

Are you a real lawyer?

Yes. Gregory K. Pang is a member in good standing with the Law Society of Alberta and has been practising law for 9 years. For more information about Gregory and his credentials, please see our "About" section, or feel free to get in touch directly.

Will our communication be confidential?

All communication with Jackpot LawyerTM is always entirely confidential, whether you choose to use our services or not.

Do I have to meet with the people you mention in the Protect Your Wealth section?

No. This is completely up to you.

Do I really want to be an anonymous lottery winner?

If you really want to have your name and photo published as the lottery winner and are prepared to face all the consequences, then that would be your choice and our services would have no value to you.
