Choosing a Lawyer  
 
  Tips from The Law Office   The Law Office Consumer Guide offers a long but informative discussion of how to choose a lawyer, from checking into employer-paid legal plans to developing a personal list of referrals. Written for Florida residents, but basically applicable to any attorney search.

    Making Complaints About a Lawyer   The American Bar Association provides a list of state agencies that oversee lawyer conduct. Use these contacts to find out if a lawyer you are interested in hiring has been disciplined in the past. You can also get help from these agencies if you are having serious problems with your lawyer, or if you need to register a complaint about serious misconduct.
