The internet and local bar associations are wonderful resources for information and referrals. For example, there is Findlaw.com, DivorceSource.net, AVVO, and many, many more web sites to visit. In Cook County and surrounding areas the Chicago Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association and the West Suburban Bar Association all have lawyer referral services. Last, but not least, your local library and the Cook County Law Library (located in most Cook County courthouses) have endless amounts of documents and information to research.
