Lawyers are many and if you had to find a select one from the pool who would also be able to work with your budget and help you win the case you are filing, it is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. Good lawyers are few and far between, and finding someone who would like to take on your case is a tad difficult.
That does not mean that all you can do is despair. If you cannot have the best, you can look around and find someone else who is good enough to fill their shoes.
The best ones are listed online
If a lawyer is listed under the listings in the website of the Australian Bar Association, you would know that the lawyer has some potential. Check the family provision lawyer. You can then do an online search for the name of the lawyer and see the hits that pop up when you do so. The good ones will have some reputed cases to their name and this will help you figure out if they are well known, and most importantly, capable enough of handling a case like the one you have been embroiled in.
Patent – Intellectual property and trade secrets
You can protect your invention without a patent by using the route of trade secrets a la Coca-Cola or KFC route. This provides intellectual secrecy and protects your idea but is not very effective as you may disclose the same to the public through marketing the invention.
