Are there any reputable directories listing US lawyers for hire relating to domain name issues?

don't know, but you might look at the firms mentioned in UDRP, dispute, or arbitration results.

Also look at the ICANN site, they offer a lot of resources and they have a presence on some social media where you might evaluate before making a choice.

Thanks, good ideas.
I got some lawyers' names from the database of previous cases on the ICANN site.

Smart move. You will see certain names reappearing . . and can determine their "track record" (wins, losses) by viewing reported opinions.

Mike Berkens, of TheDomains.com, does a good job of reporting domain dispute litigation and who the prominent players are.

In all the disputes I've reviewed or seen covered by other top-tier domaining issue sites I don't recall seeing the names of the two lawyer names mentioned by soofi.

I've come across numerous mentions of John Berryhill, Esq. and Ari Goldberger, Esq. as attorneys for the domain registrant.

On the corporate or complaining side there are MANY law firms that have filed for arbitration. Most larger firms have an intellectual property lawyer or two hidden in the dusty dark rooms of the IP law department.

Okay, one mention of a . . cough . . gag . . corporate side lawyer: Deborah A. Wilcox, Esq. I've met her and spoken on panels will her at PubCon. She's smart, quite capable, and a class act. She's a "big firm" lawyer, so the price tag for her services is likely commensurate with the firm's overhead.
