Unfortunately, the policies of this site do not permit us to represent customers of this site or to provide direct referrals. Meaning, no attorney on this site can provide actual representation or the name of a specific attorney for your case. However, we can point you in the right direction..
First, you should begin with your state bar association. The New Jersey State Bar has a website, it is located at www.njsba.com.
I do not know your county of residence but your county bar association likely has a similar site that will be more specific to your location. A quick Google search willlocate the appropriate Bar association. For example, you might search "bergen county bar association".
Additionally, Martindale Hubbell is a national organization that rates attorneys across the country. Their website is located at www.martindale.com..
Another nationwide website is located at www.avvo.com. This site lists attorneys bygeographic location and area of practice.
Additionally, there is quite likely a legal aid society in your area. A quick internet search and/or phone book search should locate the society closest to you..
Each of these resources will have a wealth of information as to attorneys in your area that handle such cases. I would suggest you check each site out and you will surely find a great number of attorneys that meet your sister's needs. She should pick a few to meet with in person so that she can thoroughly explain her situation and then retain the one that she feels can best represent her interests.
