Next, it is recommended that you consult a bar association using the American Bar Association website, americanbar.org. You can search state-specific information on this site including a lawyer finder service, license verification, access to free legal resources, and a guide to court systems. You may find that you are looking for a specific attorney in a state like the District of Columbia and being specific is going to work best for you. Also, the site provides advice that includes tips for hiring, using, and paying a lawyer.   Lastly, you can check legality specialty groups using the website of the legal information provider hg.org.

You can also access independent legal referral websites such as Avvo.com, FindLaw, LawHelp.org, and Lawyers.com, to help you find a lawyer based on your location and legal issue. Some sites provide attorney background information, a record of disciplinary actions, details about fees, and possible reviews by clients. You may also find legal dictionaries, tips, and forums where visitors can post questions and get answers from legal experts. Always research more than one site to gain an accurate understanding of a potential candidate.  Once you have found a potential candidate, set up a face-to-face meeting. The attorney will probably ask you a lot of questions, but you should be looking for some answers on your own. You’ll also want to know how your case will be handled and how you’ll be charged. Once your questions are answered, and you are ready to hire your legal counsel. If you are not certain about something, have it clarified in writing. These are probably the most important steps to take while searching for the most suitable attorney to meet your needs and wants according to the case.
