Consular District of Addis Ababa

(October, 2015)

The Addis Ababa Consular District comprises all of Ethiopia.

 The following individuals have indicated their willingness to provide legal services in Ethiopia to private American Citizens. The U.S. Embassy assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or firms whose names appear on this list. They are, however, selected with care. The names listed are arranged alphabetically by first name, in accordance with local practice. The order in which they appear has no other significance.

Unless otherwise indicated, the attorneys listed are engaged in general practice, to include adoptions, commercial law, tax matters, estates, trade disputes, criminal cases, and insurance matters. Collection cases are handled on a percentage basis. All of the attorneys listed accept correspondence in English.

The rate for first-class airmail from the U.S. to Ethiopia is 45 cents for the first half-ounce. Registered mail may be sent through the Ethiopian postal service and return receipts obtained. Various “rapid mail” services such as DHL, TNT and Federal Express are also available locally.

To dial from the United States, dial 011-251, and then the telephone number omitting the initial zero (011 is the code to make an international call from the U.S., 251 is the Ethiopian country code).

Example: If an office number is 011-551-1322, you would dial 011-251-11-551-1322 from the U.S.
