How To Find A High-Class Lawyer

If you need a lawyer, you want the best in the business. How do you find a high-class lawyer that is so respected in their field that can give you the legal guidance and support you need to win your case?

Before we discuss that, it is essential to know what defines a high-class lawyer.

What Should a High-Class Lawyer Have?

Many qualities define a lawyer, but few define a lawyer at the top of their field. When it comes to finding the best of the best, make sure you look for these qualities:

  • Experience in their respective field
  • A history of success in assisting their clients
  • Their manner, approach and supportive nature
  • They work for a legal firm or run their own establishment
  • Have a high-quality and qualified team around them to support their work

With this firm foundation, now you can begin searching for a high-class lawyer:

Search Online

The internet is your saviour when it comes to finding a high-class lawyer that can help you with your case. Google will provide you with a list of the best lawyers within your city, region or area. It will also provide you with reviews about the lawyers through their Google My Business profiles.

But significantly, you can do your own research. Check out sites like Facebook, Better Business Bureau and Legal Associations to see the lawyers' reputation and quality. You should also conduct news searches to see if they have come up in the media and whether the news is good or bad.

Ask Legal Association

Every state or province has a legal association that lawyers have to compile with and follow in terms of ethics and regulations. There are also federal associations that oversee the whole process. These are good starting points to where you can find a high-class lawyer.

Legal associations have vital information about all lawyers within their respective fields, such as family lawyers (who help with divorce and child custody), criminal defence lawyers (, civil lawyers and commercial lawyers.

Depending on what you want, speak to the legal associations, and ask them for a list of the best lawyers in their respective fields.

Go To Legal Aid

For many people, lawyers can be expensive. So they might require additional support when it comes to finding aid. That's where Legal Aid comes in.

There is also the assumption that Legal Aid means getting handed lawyers that aren't up to standards and are considered the barrel's bottom - far from it.

Legal Aid will provide you with information on where you can reach lawyers that can help you with your case, and ensure they are the top people for the job.

Ask Family, Friends & Colleagues

It's a sad reality, but there are people that you might know that have used a lawyer at some point. Whether it's for a divorce (the most common), family, civil or criminal, there will be someone in your inner circle, and even on the edges of the outer circle, that has used a lawyer in the past.

So why not ask them?

You'll be getting a reference from a reliable source (someone you trust), and you can gauge if the lawyer is indeed up your alleyway in terms of service, value and money. Ask around to people who know about any lawyers that can assist you with your case.
