Re: How did you find a lawyer?

My case is defamation (libel). Turns out it is a criminal offense in Switzerland so I am looking for someone with expertise in criminal law.

The person I'd like to sue has lots of money and a good lawyer, so I want to be well prepared and lawyer up as good as possible - I realize being right is not going to be enough to win. So I am not limiting my search to 0lten, anyone in central switzerland would be perfect, as long as they have dealt with cases like this before.

I did search Swiss Bar Association site today already. For my canton/criminal law there was something like 20 lawyers. I checked them all, none mentions expertise in defamation. Does being listed in Swiss Bar Association guarantee they are any good? I had a feeling choosing someone from there was as good as randomly picking someone from google search results.

I'm afraid to make a bad choice and hurt my reputation even further, plus lose a lot of money while doing that.
