I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. I don't see the question you've referred to. What is your situation and your criminal law question?

I hired a man to train my horse for a year, 7800 later no training done. he gave me his horse as collateral damage while he worked on getting my money back. 2 months later another man is claiming the horse as his. to me trainer commited fraud, and pretty much gave me a stolen horse. want to file charges against him and need assistance on legal process. in the meanwhile the horse recently got sick with a colic and new man involved may want to file down the road suit against me so need to be prepared, please advise. I still have horse in my possession the new man has not provided legal proof.

Per our conversation, here are a few legal referral services for you:

Try the Texas Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service. They charge a fee of around $50 for the referral and guarantee a lawyer in good standing with his licensing authority. Their referral fee includes a free half-hour initial consultation with the attorney.

apps.americanbar.org/legalservices/lris/directory/main.cfm?id=TX

To get still a wider range of possibilities, you can also check out a commercial lawyer referral service. There are many of them, but one that has been around a long time and which is highly regarded is www.Martindale.com.

Many of Martindale's lawyers are peer and client-rated, which you might find helpful to narrow down your choices.

Still one more would be www.Avvo.com. They have a rating system as well to help make it easier to narrow down your choices.

Best of luck.
