Both of these attorney referral services have attorneys available for almost all legal fields except ones that require very specialized attorneys.
An attorney who wishes to be part of the San Diego Bar Association's database must fulfill a few pre-requisites before being admitted. The attorneys must have a set number of years of experience dealing with specific cases. Additionally, the San Diego Bar Association does continuous checks on its members. Unfortunately, the information about the attorneys that is actually provided to clients is limited mostly to their contact information. The San Diego Bar does not offer any satisfaction guarantees nor do they assure that the referred attorney will be interested in taking the case. The service is intended solely to narrow your search for attorneys.
