The first step to finding a lawyer is determining whether or not you really need a lawyer. There may be a number of alternatives to pursuing a legal matter through the courts. For instance, if you’re owed back wages, you may be able to get through to human resources, even if you have to threaten to sue. Or, you may be able to get the other party to agree to alternative dispute resolution (also known as mediation or arbitration). A traffic infraction can be dealt with by yourself, generally speaking, but if you’re hoping to establish a conservatorship over your ailing mother, you’ll at least want to consult a lawyer.
The True Abyss
Legalese threatens the sanity of even the bravest of minds, so if you have found yourself in real legal trouble, for instance, if you’re currently being arrested, don’t expect for my Frequently Asked Questions page to get you through your worries.

Firing Your Lawyer

Send a certified letter notifying your soon-to-be former attorney of your decision to terminate your relationship. Be sure to ask that any files be sent to your new attorney, and ask for an itemized receipt for all work performed on your behalf—so that you can receive a refund for any work not yet performed but which was paid for in advance.
I’m living and licensed in California, so for any specific legal codes I cite or mention, unless I state otherwise, you should assume I’m speaking of California law. If you do not live in California, and your issue doesn’t concern a California entity (individual or business), you will have to seek the counsel of a lawyer in your area.
