Finding however a good lawyer to represent you in your legal battle is like finding a needle in a haystack. Ending up with one who does not have the adequate knowledge and experience in handling cases like yours may cost you a lot of money and waste of time. It may also lose your legal battle not on the merits but due to ineffectiveness of your counsel. You may then ask how will you be able to find a good lawyer. The following points may help you in your quest:
Take the lawyer referred to you by your trusted friends or relatives who have been also their lawyers in the past. Ask them how the lawyers represented them so you may have an idea how the lawyer performs his or her job.

It is better if you choose the one who is recommended the most by the majority of your friends and family.

Ask your trusted colleagues, partners, your bankers or insurance agents who were in constant contact with lawyers.
