Several Bar Associations in Tennessee have placed information on their web sites
to help you know when you need a lawyer and how best to find one. Of course, as
several of these sites will suggest, one thing you should consider (although it
is not the only thing) is whether the attorney is certified as a specialist in
the area for which you are employing him. You can confirm his or her
certification by checking our list of Certified
Certified Specialists have significant experience in their specialty field, have
passed an examination, meet continuing legal education requirements for their
field, have received positive references form their clients and other lawyers,
and must carry malpractice insurance.
These resources can provide you with additional valuable information to help you
