What are the best ways to find a good litigation attorney?

What are the best ways to find a good litigation attorney? Most advice are to check their bio, reviews, and have initial consultations. But would it be helpful to check their past pleadings (but how to get them?) and hear how they argue in court? Or anything else? Thanks.

Ok, I have a 16-year-old staying at my home. She has been here for about 3 weeks. She is adamant about not returning to her mother because it is an abusive environment. Her mother told the police and the school that she wants her daughter to come home, but she told her daughter that she doesn't want her and if she comes home she won't feed her or take care of her at all. She shut off her phone and refuses to pay for anything. She said she's not her responsibility and technically she's correct because she doesn't have custody. Her father has legal custody. her mother lost custody because she is bipolar, schizophrenic, multiple personalities (refuses to take meds) but is also a drug addict and alcoholic and abuses and neglects her children. The child doesn't even have a bed and has holes in her clothing and shoes. The police told the mother they would contact child protective services if she bothered them again because the child is better off without her and the conditions are horrible. The child wants to become emancipated, but she hasn't found a stable job yet. I don't want me or my husband to get in trouble because we are helping her, but she has nowhere to go and she doesn't want to get taken by CPiS because she says the shelters are horrible. I want to know what I can do.
