It depends on what kind of lawyer you need. You can research on the internet for the type lawyer you need. Once you know what kind of lawyer you need, probably word of mouth is the best way to find one. Ask your friends and family and people you know that have had a similar legal problem for recommendations.

    There are many resources to find a lawyer. Asking friends and relatives for a referral to an attorney they used/were happy with is usually a good way to go. You can also search the internet, the Yellow Pages, the white pages, contact your local Bar Association, contact the State Bar Association or watch TV for lawyer ads (although some of these folks may not try cases and may only either try to make a quick settlement and/or refer you to other lawyers that actually handle your case so they can ask for a referral fee).

    You call the lawyer's office and ask to make an appointment to discuss hiring the lawyer. You can find lawyers in you local yellow pages, and on the internet. For example, if you are looking for a lawyer for a personal injury case, you can "Google" "injury lawyer [you county] [your state". For example, I would Google "Injury lawyer Anderson S.C." You can also visit a website "AVVO" and find lawyers in various practice areas where you live, or Lawyers.com.

    Undoubtedly you have already gotten numerous responses. You should select a lawyer from a referral or other personal source. Otherwise, you can certainly find many lawyers on the Internet. Before hiring a lawyer talk to several lawyers about your case and see if you feel comfortable with them.

    Seek out suggestions from friends, family, co-workers regarding a lawyer who practices in the area you require assistance. If you have a probate matter, you won't want a lawyer who does criminal lawyer nearly exclusively, nor the other way around. You can google, contact the county or state bar associations, or let your fingers walk through the yellow pages phone directory.

    Lombardi Law Firm
    Lombardi Law Firm | Steve Lombardi
    It's a two part question. Where, is the first part. You hire a lawyer in the place where suit will be filed. The place where suit will be filed is normally the same place where the accident happened. So if you're on I-80 and traveling through Iowa on your way home to Indiana you would contact an Iowa personal injury lawyer. Now let us discuss the how part of your question. No longer are you able to just open the phone book to look for a lawyer. Today you would get on the Internet and search for the type of lawyer in the state where you were injured. In the example I'm using you would do a search for "Iowa I-80 personal injury lawyer". Make sense? Good luck and if we can help give us a call.
