A lot of people go to the yellow pages to hire an attorney. After all, where else can you find such a comprehensive list of attorneys looking for work? Okay, you may be able to find such a list on the internet, but with the yellow pages, you know they are all in your area, right?
Well, maybe. There are some attorneys who get a local phone number and even an executive suite in a town and don’t maintain a presence. But, this is maybe 10% of the attorneys. So, most of the attorneys are probably still close.
But, the yellow pages is not a great way to find an attorney. Why? Because the size of the ad, the colors, the words means absolutely nothing when it comes to whether the attorney can represent you and whether the attorney has any idea what he or she is doing. A fancy yellow pages ad costs money.
So, you think someone who takes out an ad has lots of money to pay for it, right? Maybe. Maybe they are paying for it with credit. Maybe they are paying for it with their settlements, but not paying anything else. Maybe they aren’t even paying for it!
