How Do People Find Lawyers?

The ABA's Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services commissioned a survey to learn how people find lawyers and, when they don't use lawyers, how they find legal information: Perspectives on Finding Personal Legal Services: The Results of a Public Opinion Poll, Feb. 2011.

For summaries see How People Find Lawyers: Referrals Are Popular, Blogs Not So Much, Poll Finds, ABA J. online, March 23, 2011; How People Find Lawyers, Gallagher Blogs, March 25, 2011.

People are more likely to use the Internet than the Yellow Pages now, but the dominant way of finding lawyers is still personal referral.
