RECOMMENDATIONS COUNT FOR SOMETHING
At a loss for which lawyer to hire? Why not ask your friends and family. Most people know someone they have trusted in the legal field, someone they have worked with in the past. Go to them. Ask them for their honest opinion. Find out why they trusted this person. Ask them why they passed on this lawyer. When it comes to the legal system, your friends are going to be honest with you.
Ask them for suggestions. Ask your friends how they got through it. Your friends are in your life for a reason. Use them as a sounding board. Sometimes your friends and family will offer objective ideas, when others can not.
