    Poll: finding a lawyer

    Advertisements
    If you or your SO or someone else you know ever hired a criminal defense attorney, how did you find the attorney?

    Poll is private, so no one can see whether you voted.

    I haven't needed a criminal defense attorney. However, if I did, I would get a referral from my best friend. She is a paralegal for two attorneys here in town. She gave me a great referral when we had to go against people over our tree hits property issue.

    Never had to but if I had to find a lawyer I'd come to you to ask you who you recommend and how to go about finding one.

    Not needed, but referral from friends, followed by online research.

    I'd ask my father-in-law. He's a well known and respected criminal defense attorney and has a lot of connections. Likely he wouldn't be able to represent me or whatever because he lives somewhere else but he'd point us in the right direction.

    I recently had to get one for a huge ticket I got but I heard about him through my co worker and since I referred someone else it was pro bono.

    Most of my clients at my last firm (I still did criminal/traffic on the side) were referred by co-workers or other attorneys. I think I had one who found me on the internet.

    I have never needed one but I would use whoever my BIL uses. So I chose referral from a friend.

    My sister is a lawyer so I can usually ask her. My father is as well so if I really needed to I could ask him for advice or a referral.
