One of the questions I get asked most often is: How do you find a good mechanic? After all, I spend a lot of time talking about things that can go wrong when you hire a bad one. The answer is actually quite simple.

Even so, it takes a whole podcast to flesh out. You see, the answer is to ask around. And this is true in many fields of human endeavor. Want a good CPA or a good car salesperson? Again, ask around and get a referral.

To make sure the lesson is clear, I give some examples. How I found my mechanic, and how I stepped in to salvage a case when someone didn’t follow my advice, among others.

This website may supply general information about the law but it is for informational purposes only. This does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not meant to constitute legal advice, so the good news is we’re not billing you by the hour for reading this. The bad news is that you shouldn’t act upon any of the information without consulting a qualified professional attorney who will, probably, bill you by the hour.
