How do you go about finding a ‘good’ Spanish lawyer?

Asking the other people you meet, who are at the same stage of the purchase procedure, is not practical because it is not until later in the process when you discover you have no building licence/roof/golf course/water supply that you realise you do not in fact have a ‘good’ Spanish lawyer. And no friends either if they have taken your advice!

I have personally met 5 Spanish lawyers – one ‘good’ and four ‘bad’ (and I can quantify this). That gives a 20% chance of getting a ‘good’ one, which is not good betting odds.
