How did you find a lawyer? Can someone please give me an idea on how I could find a good lawyer?
I just look in the mirror - works fine every morning.

You do not tell us whether your case deals with your neighbor or someone on an internet portal based on the other side of the globe. Most law offices in Olten should be able to handle the first scenario and may have to learn their way around the second scenario.
Then there may be law offices which specialize in one or just a few particular areas. You may want to avoid such specialists, unless it is the area of expertise you are looking for.
This is the link to the Swiss Bar Association: https://www.sav-fsa.ch/ (their English language content is somewhat limited, though).
On this page you can search by location, expertise and language skills: http://www.anwaltvergleich.ch/ There are 17 lawyers in Olten which list English language skills and Criminal law as an area of expertise. Without having taken a closer look I assume that the information is basically a collection of information by the lawyers - no third party quality checks. However, there are a few ratings on this side.
Depending on your language skills you can also search for "Anwaltssuche".
