Lawyers who specialize in the field of dental malpractice are revealed through various online search engines, as well as by reaching out to local law firms that deal more broadly with medical malpractice. Online services such as Lawyers.com and Legalmatch.com provide search information for lawyers by location and by specialty, as noted on their websites.
Some legal websites, such as Lawyers.com, provide detailed descriptions about each legal speciality in order to clarify whether or not your particular issue is covered by the legal field in question. No verifiable claims are made about individual lawyers regarding their reliability, success rate, or costs relative to similar lawyers in their local area, states LegalMatch.
Alternatively, most law offices maintain an extensive network of contacts within their field and, much like those in the medical field, can refer you to a specialist in an area that the firm does not handle on their own, notes FindLaw. If you already know or have worked with a lawyer you trust, use the old-fashioned method of asking him for referrals to colleagues who can assist you with your particular legal problems. Newer websites such as Findlaw.com and Linkedin.com facilitate what was once handled strictly through face-to-face communication. This may improve your chances of finding a lawyer who is experienced and trustworthy to handle your case.
