The Pattent Attorney search continues

So, spent some time today looking for a lawyer.. I'm still confused. So, you have an idea.. and you need information, but you can't give away any real information because you want your idea to be hush hush. So its this stupid games of asking general questions in the hope that you can find out enough information without disclosing all the information that you have. So that's the first part of the dilemma.

Then, I'm trying to find a patent lawyer with certain expertise, and I want a good lawyer with a certain background... and the people who would know such information would either be companies.. who, if they are big enough would have in house lawyers. Then if they are smaller companies, they may not want to disclose their lawyer. And then if you contact a lawyer for a referral, they just want your business... so how do you find a really good lawyer.. with cold calling?

I guess this is one of those things you figure out along the way. Or.. if anyone has any advice or guidance, I'd love to hear it!
