I was recently in a situation where I needed to find a lawyer for a dispute with a company regarding their billing for a service they did not render. Like you, I didn't know where to start. I posted on here and had an offer from another member.
Great advise, thank you.

What he is getting at is that it is culturally not common to sue, as for example in the US. You only do it in severe cases... you seem to be one, so best of luck. I'd personally still just go to the cops and I don't think most people talk to criminal law experts before filing, those experts are usually hired by the defense side...


Anyway - good luck, sounds like you don't really need it, so more "good perseverance"...
Yes, exactly, this is what I was getting at. Thanks Treverus.

Good luck.

Re: How did you find a lawyer?

Well I would suggest in your case you call a couple of law firms in the region, get a feel of how they treat you and their language skills. Then ask for a quote - at least per hour and what kind of retainer they ask for.

Additionally ask them about their experience in your cases - if they feel they can not take your case ask for a recommendation. If you do not feel confident or comfortable - choose another one.

Re: How did you find a lawyer?

Hello,

I am an Englishman who is living in Monaco and London. I have a request to contract a lawyer for the purpose of recovery of money from my ex-fiance who is Swiss and lives in Zurich.

I am eager to serve notice for the return of SFrs 50000 which was expropriated.

Please do help.

Malcolm
