I’ve only used a lawyer for a will and my house closing. Who should I see for something more complicated?

Ask friends for recommendations, especially those who have had similar situations. Check the Yellow Pages under “lawyers” for ads specifying the service you need. Interview at least two and ask what experience they have had in handling similar cases. Remember, you are hiring a service; you should be satisfied that the person you choose to stand up for you in court is the right one.
