Finding a lawyer in Geneva

Hi, what's the best way to find a lawyer in Geneva? I'm getting sued by an architect who's falsely claiming I (verbally) asked them to do some work (which I didn't). Obviously I can google "lawyers in Geneva", but is there a more reliable way to find someone reputable who would take on that kind of work.

Thanks, Steve

Re: Finding a lawyer in Geneva

Why would you want a lawyer for this at this moment.

Tell them you dispute the bill since you never ordered the work, they have burden of proof since they are the ones who claim.

There's a permance juridique in Geneva which is an easy way to start. Or should I say several now. Google search permanence juridique, some free, others small fee.

This guide from the city might also help.
