Looking for a lawyer / notary / accountant who is certified to certify identity documents

Can anyone recommend a lawyer / notary / accountant who can certify a copy of my identity as a true copy, with some specific text "original sighted and verified and bears a true likeness/resemblance to the individual whom I have met". 


Any recommendations where I can go would be appreciated, and also one that doesn't charge a fortune for it!  Thanks!

I can’t recommend anyone but be aware that there are fixed tariffs for this kind of work.  You can ask to see the cost before confirming the transaction.


Best, R.

if you don't get any recommendations here, maybe you could go to your local Mairie and ask there for a list of lawyers  who do this in your commune.

If you also need a translation of your document, contact the Geneva Association of Sworn Translators (see their website for details).  As already mentioned,  fixed tariffs apply but this is a domain where you need the assurance that the work is legally authentic.

Notaries in Geneva can be very expensive - if you just need an apostile or verification of a document (the more typical US notary work) you may want to try one in France (they are a bit more affordable). I think there was one recommended on a similar thread recently.


Also for US citizens the Embassy just announced they will be doing a tour of Switzerland with US notary services at different times in Geneva, Zurich, Basel, etc. . . Check the consular services section of the Embassy website. Otherwise, only the Embassy in Bern has those services on the regular.

Your profile says you are originally from the UK. Have  you already checked with the UK embassy? They provide notarial services to UK citizens.

I have just had documents cerified by a notary from the notaires Geneve list. I used the notaires at Cours de Bastions, Morand- Jaquemoud, and their secretary was really very friendly and service- oriented. It was 82 CHF for 2 docs.
