Editor's Comments of the Day
Recently ILW.COM has received inquiries about the qualifications of the attorneys who are listed on the site. ILW.COM does make efforts to verify that attorneys are licensed to practice law. If attorneys are listed for practice in countries other than the US, we check to make sure they are licensed to practice in those countries. We encourage attorneys to use the find a lawyer page to check the listings of colleagues in their areas to see who are members. With over 600 attorneys listed on the site not every one has the same area of expertise or level of experience. The choice of an attorney to handle your case is an highly personal decision. ILW.COM offers the opportunity to search for and contact attorneys by location, by language, by area of expertise so you can find one with whom you feel comfortable. With the discussion board and the open public chat room every evening ILW.COM also provides a forum for people to compare experiences with attorneys.
