How do you find a competent lawyer?
Word of mouth is an excellent way to find attorneys in your area that represent the brain injury community. If you participate in any support groups, ask survivors and caregivers whether they have any recommendations.
County Bar Associations often have a lawyer referral service that will match your needs to the legal practice of a local lawyer.
Find Legal Help at http://apps.americanbar.org/legalservices/findlegalhelp/home.cfm is a service of the American Bar Association (ABA). Note that the ABA cannot help you directly. The ABA site guides you to a list of resources by state.
FindLaw at http://www.findlaw.com is a legal resource for up to date online legal information about popular legal topics. Learn how to find an attorney, legal aid services and legal self help. There is a list of free legal information available at FindLaw.
