Find DuPage County Lawyers

December 17, 2010 | By | Reply More

It’s almost inevitable, that at some point in time, you will need legal assistance.  Some of the main reasons the average DuPage resident sets out to find a lawyer include:

  • Divorce / Custody Issues
  • DUI / Traffic Accidents / Traffic Tickets
  • Estate Planning / Wills
  • Residential / Tenant-Landlord Disputes

If you do not already have an established relationship with a lawyer, you may be wondering where to find a lawyer in DuPage County.  Where do you begin?  How do you know which lawyer is best for your particular legal issue?  Where do people find good lawyers?

The best place to start may be speaking with a trusted friend or family member.  Ask if they can refer you to or recommend a lawyer to address your situation.  Ask around…  People are generally more than eager to recommend a lawyer who has served them well in the past.

The next best option when trying to find a lawyer in DuPage, is to check out the DuPage County Bar Association.   This DuPage Bar’s website has a wealth of resources to assist and guide when you are looking for legal assistance.  Using their Find-a-Lawyer online search tool, you can search for an attorney who is skilled in the are you need assistance with.  You can search by legal specialty / area of practice, location, and names (or any combination of these criteria).  Check it out…  It’s a great place to get started.

Once you have found a lawyer who sounds like they can best address your legal issue, I would recommend verifying that the lawyer is in good standing in Illinois.  Check them out using the lawyer search available on the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission’s website.  You obviously don’t want to work with a lawyer who is in poor standing or has a history of disciplinary actions against them.

Whatever you do, don’t pick a lawyer’s name out of the phone book and trust that they are your best option.  Like any other professional, there are good lawyers, and their are bad lawyers…  Do your best to check them out prior to trusting them with your legal issue.
