Read Lawyer Referral Services Disclaimers

Take a look at some of those lawyer referral websites or hotlines. Scroll down to the tiny print at the bottom or listen for the fast-talking disclaimer. Many will say something along the lines of, “We cannot guarantee the quality of legal representation,” or “We recommend you do not base your decision to hire an attorney solely on advertisements or self-proclaimed specialization.” 

Hey, I’m glad to see that even the lawyer referral services are confirming what I’ve been saying all along. You can’t trust lawyer referral services to find the best lawyers in Virginia– you have to do the work yourself! Consult the lawyer and read client testimonials and recommendations, and consider the attorney’s credentials and qualifications to handle your case.
