His choice was based on little more than intuition after scanning local ads for traffic-ticket specialists in the jurisdiction where his ticket was written.

Using a referral service operated by a state, county or city bar association also may yield good results. Membership in a state or local bar typically means the attorney is licensed to practice there. The website of the Tennessee Bar Association refers those looking for legal representation to one of three regional hotlines, while the State Bar of Texas offers an online lookup service by legal areas of specialization, including traffic tickets.

Most every state and many local jurisdictions have something similar. Visit the state websites listed below for more information, or search more local jurisdictions online.
