QUESTION: What's a good strategy to search, find and pick the right attorney for me among hundreds if not thousands of attorneys in LA? I am looking for a patent attorney to research and file a design patent.

ANSWER: If you cannot obtain a referral to a patent attorney from someone you trust, then do a Google search and review the client reviews. The review may give you insight into which attorney(s) may be a fit. The attorney does not have to be within driving distance of you, since most if not all matters can be handled by phone/email. Then interview the attorney to see if your personalities are a fit. If you cannot get along with the attorney, it will not matter how brilliant the attorney.
