You can also get help from lawyer referral services. You can find a list of lawyer referral services in your yellow book under "Lawyers", "Attorneys" or "Attorney Referral Services", or you can search them on Internet. These services usually charge you a fee but some services might allow you talk to a lawyer without any charge.
In addition, you might come across advertisements from attorneys or law firms. Just like dealing with other type of advertisements, you should be careful and don't trust advertisement too much.
Beside resources mentioned above, there are a number of other options to find a lawyer, such as looking at phone book or doing web search, etc. Don't settle down with first lawyer that you come across. Make sure to interview a few attorneys before you make your final decision.
