These are all really substitutes for good old fashioned word of mouth. It is certainly nice to be able to ask a friend who they used and how they liked their attorney. But what if they didn't like their lawyer or you don't feel comfortable speaking about your situation with your friends. These are alternative ways to get the same type of information that your friends may provide. Once you get a lawyer who looks good call and talk to him or her. Make sure you feel comfortable with their advice and knowledge. Don't waste too much time on interviewing numerous attorneys. Once you get one that you feel comfortable with, make an appointment and meet. You want to get a lawyer on board as soon as possible. The sooner they can file their appearance the sooner they can get going on your case.
