How to Find a Good Lawyer – Part 1
Chances are that if you are looking to find a good lawyer, you are either anticipating an important event for which legal planning may be of benefit or you are currently in a difficult situation and you need to find the best way to deal with that situation. Either way, finding the best lawyer for you, whatever your situation, may take a little time. Fortunately though, the time you invest in finding a good lawyer to help you with your situation will be well worth it.

Assess Your Urgency Level
The first thing you should do in your quest to find a good lawyer is assess the urgency of your situation. Are you planning for the future? Are you looking to start a business next year? Are you trying to determine if you need a will? Are you thinking about relocating with your children after the end of the next school year? Or do you need to take immediate action? Were you just served with a lawsuit? Were you "threatened" with legal action? Were you recently arrested and accused of a crime? Have you been summoned for Court?

If you are planning for the future, you may have some time before you need to consult with an attorney but keep in mind that your search to find a good lawyer may take a little bit of time and effort so plan accordingly. However, if you think you need to take immediate action, get started on your quest as soon as you possibly can. Determine if whatever you are going to do today or tomorrow is more important than finding a good lawyer to help you right now.

Gather Your Documentation
The next thing you should do, especially if you have determined that you need to take immediate action, is gather all the documents and the evidence that you think may be related to your situation. Depending on the reason you are looking to find a good lawyer, you may need to gather medical reports, contracts, school records, property deeds, police reports, pay stubs, tax returns, bills, legal paperwork from a related case, etc. Try to get a copy of everything that you can think of that may be related to your situation or that may be of significance.

Make Your List
After you have gathered all the relevant documentation, the next thing you should do in your search to find a good lawyer is make a list of the lawyers that you think may be able to help you. Some people do this by asking their friends and/or family members for the names of lawyers that they know or for the name of a particular attorney that they may have dealt with in the past. However, legal matters are usually very personal in nature and often involve delicate issues. Many people may not want to and in some cases should not consult their friends and/or family members for a lawyer referral. Naturally, this is a judgment call.

Whether you decide to enlist the help of friends and/or family members for a lawyer referral, you may also want to consider looking online to supplement the list of attorney prospects in your search to find a good lawyer. Regardless of whether you go the referral route, the internet route, or a combination of both, keep in mind that each source will have its positive and its potentially negative aspects. That being said, you need to start somewhere.
