We had a comment about how you can check your attorney’s experience. The obvious way to check is to ask your attorney. What else can you do?
In some counties, for instance Sacramento, you can search online. If you type your attorneys name in the “civil search,” you will get a list of cases that he/she is involved in. That gives you some information.
You can also check Lexis, if you have a subscription. If you do not, a Google search works often. You would be surprised at what you find with a google search of your attorney. Other than that, you may want to call other attorneys in the area and ask!
