How do I find a trustworthy, reputable lawyer?

Lawyers have to follow very stringent ethical rules, especially regarding the handling of money and the representation of clients. Judges’ rules are even more stringent. To check out your potential attorney, search the state Bar Association where the attorney is located to see if they have any ethical complaints or malpractice suits filed against them (use www.kybar.org in Kentucky, or http://www.supremecourt.ohio.gov/ in Ohio).

Also, check to see how the attorney is rated on www.avvo.com. You can check out our blog post on hiring an attorney for more details.
