Do you need to find a lawyer in another state? Do you need to find the laws of another state?

Think about it. If you’re looking for reliable legal information, a law library is one good place to begin, online or on the phone or in person.

Attorneys know about legal notices, service by publication, or other publication requirements, but what about us normal people?! What are we to do?

Here is a little guidance, but I also recommend you ask the judge (if it was a judge who told you to publish a legal notice) or consult an attorney. You want to get this right! It’s not cheap to publish a legal notice and it’s even more expensive to get it wrong – because you have to do it all over again.

Legal notices may also called Legal Ads (not to be confused with Legal Aids!). I wrote a blog post last May about Legal Notice by Publication, but the question pops up now and again, and again, and again.

Law librarians never make referrals to individual lawyers. Never. Never. Never. But, others can and do. Lawyers do and can, friends can and do. (And the best bartenders often have the best recommendations – they hear it ALL – but you still have to check the attorney’s bona fides!) The Oregon State Bar (OSB) Referral and Information Service can and does make referrals to individual attorneys.

The latest (Vol. XXV, No. 4, October 2008) issue of the newsletter from the Estate Planning and Administration section of the Oregon State Bar (OSB) has the following article:

Liability for Referrals to Other Lawyers,” by Tim McNeil, of Davis Pagnano & McNeil, with a discussion of the tort of negligent referral, joint venture/join liability, the Oregon Rules of Professional Conduct, and how to limit liability.
