Yes there are. We have a few ways, depending on the situation.<quoted text> See, there are many different ways to find a lawyer
For business and most civil matters, we use a rock solid firm out of Chicago.
For spur of the moment matters, such as things that might come up on vacation or travel - we belong to a prepaid legal network.
For matters that wouldn't fall into those catagories - we would seek referral advice from a relative who earned their law degree from Cooley Law.
I can't say we've ever considered hiring anyone fresh off of Topix or Facebook tho.
It sounds like a less pragmatic approach to me, but by all means you should do what feels right for you.
