Finding The Right Attorney
At Driver Defense, we’re a lawyer directory service, and not a lawyer referral service and we therefore cannot direct or influence you to hire any specific attorney. By that logic, we’re unable to contact or seek an attorney for you. Nonetheless, we’ve done our research and we can tell you what you should look for when researching an attorney. Given the exorbitant amount of attorneys in the USA, it’s essential that you do proper research to see which attorney can best defend your case and suit your needs.
In the United States, each individual states typically count thousands of licenses esquires. This means that you will have to carefully examine an attorney’s educational and professional backgrounds prior to hire. A very well educated attorney can make the difference in a court environment.
In order for an attorney to be seen as being in good standing, he or she must not be delinquent in annual license fees, suspended for disciplinary reasons, disbarred, or suspended for failure to comply with continuing legal education requirements. In short, it’s very important to determine an attorney’s standing prior to hiring them.
We live in a society that has made it very simple for fellow clients to determine one’s ability to provide a service. By researching an attorney’s client testimonials, you will be able to visualize the ways in which this attorney represents clients and the positive or negative aspects that can result from hiring that attorney.
In many states there are legal associations and awards that an attorney can receive and be a part of. These awards and associations typically require an attorney that is in high standing and very knowledgeable within his profession.

Locating An Attorney
Word of mouth can sometimes be the best form of publicity because you won’t be swayed by advertisements. If you’re referred an attorney by a friend or family member that had previously hired them, you’re more likely to save time doing extensive research. Please note that all cases are different and results will vary.
Hardly anyone ever uses the Yellow Pages anymore, and chances are that if you’ve found our site you probably aren’t using the Yellow Pages. If you open the Yellow Pages you’d be surprised to see that there is a wide array of attorneys that still advertise in them. It can never hurt to open them and extend your research base for the attorney you’re looking for.
Your local or state Bar association can usually provide you with a referral to a specific attorney for a low flat fee of around $35-50 USD. Starting there can prove to be beneficial because they have extensive knowledge of the attorneys in your area that comprise the domain you’re searching for.
Our team at Driver Defense would definitely consider the Internet to be one (if not, THE) best place to start searching. The Internet can provide you with virtually endless information on whatever matter you’re searching. The only downside about researching an attorney on the Internet is that there is so much competition that you will have difficulty sorting through the hundreds of thousands of advertisements and listings.
