A: Hiring a lawyer is like hiring a professional for any other service. You can use the internet to find someone that practices in the subject matter area of your case(s). For example, if its a criminal case, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney. If it is a probate/estate planning case, you need someone with experience in that area. Not all attorneys practice all areas of law. Search around for someone that has experience for your particular needs and ask for consultations. Also, the cost is different between attorneys. Some charge flat fees, some charge hourly, and sometimes cases are taken on a contingency basis.
