Article Body:
Chances are if you are   looking for a lawyer you are at a very stressful
time in your life, and   are overwhelmed. It doesn’t have to be as hard or
as costly as you think   to find a good lawyer. Provided below are some
tips that can take the   stress out of finding a lawyer

<b>What is it that you want -</b>
When first starting out the whole process take time to jot down exactly
what it is that you want in a lawyer and in your legal case in general.
This will help save you cost and aid greatly in finding a lawyer. Have a
detailed layout of your whole case, what it is that has happened, and
what it is you want to happen as a result of the legal case. Another very
important question to ask yourself is: How much can you afford to spend
on a lawyer?

<b>Where to Look for a lawyer - </b>
Are first instinct when looking for a lawyer is to flip through the
yellow pages and to see which ad, or slogan sounds right. This isn’t the
worst idea, although setting up consultations can be very timely and time
consuming. I would recommend talking to friends and family first to see
if they or anyone they know have had experience working with lawyers in
your area and what they would recommend. Several people have gone through
the same situation as you, ask around, and I’m sure they will gladly help
you out as they understand what it is like to be in your shoes. There are
also several places online where you can search for lawyers. Be careful
when searching online as often times sources aren’t as creditable as they
would give themselves credit for.

<b>What to look for in a lawyer - </b>
I think the most important aspect in finding a lawyer is finding someone
that you can work with. You might find the best lawyer in the world, but
if your personalities don’t mesh, your going to have a really hard time
working through your case. Make sure the lawyer you seek out has
experience and expertise in the matter that you need him or her for. For
Example if you need a divorce lawyer, there is no sense going to a lawyer
who specializes in Corporate Law. This will help save in legal fee’s and
also give you a much better chance in the case you are fighting. Look
into the Lawyer’s experience and history. Is this lawyer qualified to
handle your case?

If you take these things into consideration I have no doubt that you will
have success in finding a great lawyer.
