What are the best ways to find a civil litigation attorney

What are the best ways to find a civil litigation attorney on a contingency basis?And when you have no direct evidence, but there is no other better explanations (therefore if it is not him who did it, or if it is not done this way, then what would it be), what is the best approach to go? - Subpoena to question people and see if they have a reasonable explanation or it is full of contradictions and lies?By law is hard evidence a must; or it will be considered a truth if everything add up together and it looks obvious this way even there is no direct evidence?

The bank foreclosed on my home. They then bought the home at the sheriff's sale. Now I have a notice to vacate -- they want to evict me. Is there anyway I can avoid this - this house is my family home that my parents built. I am 64 years old and on disability. I believe it was an illegal foreclosure because they didn't produce the documents I requested, etc. I live in Columbus Ohio and need assistance there.

I received a Judgment for the plaintiff (me) "case defaulted

I received a Judgment for the plaintiff (me) "case defaulted on defendant's failure to comply with prior Orders" in NH Small Claims. Defendant never responded to my motion for a default judgment during the 10 days he had to (or after). Judgment was rendered and all parties notified. 30 days to pay me (which he never did) or respond to the court about the motion or judgment the judgment during that 30 day period. I filed a motion for periodic payments and 3 days later he has an attorney (now) and he files a motion to strike Default Judgment. Is that even an option at this point. 1. missed deadline to dispute my motion (10 days). 2. missed deadline to pay me per court orders (30 days). 3. missed window to appeal to NH Supreme Court on basis of law (30 days). Is this something I need to be concerned about or is defendant just wasting everyone's time.

We hired a contractor thinking that he was licensed and

We hired a contractor thinking that he was licensed and bonded, didn't check his credentials because he was a family friend referral, paid him mostly cash with only a proposal drawn out- we are new to this and obviously very naive and now realizing our mistake, no written date of completion was drawn but verbal agreement to complete the work within 3 months. later found out that his licensed was suspended before he started working on our house so LNI cant do anything about it. It's being a year now and the contractor is paid in full but some work is still left to be completed. Two bed rooms and a bathroom plus trims and doors etc. Work started in August,2015. I finally tallied everything and asked him to sign on it stating that he was paid in full and agreed that the rest of the work should be completed by May 31st. He did sign on it. He then claimed to have been since hospitalized due to health issues and now claims to no be able to do much without exertion. He continues to promise that he will complete the work but we hardly see him anymore. He also mentioned that he will hire someone to help, Haven't seen him or that person. The arthitect who referred him to us signed the permit for the work to be completed. Almost looks like he knew about his revoked license. what can I do in this case.
