How to find a good divorce lawyer/mediator in San Jose? And what is good?

I'm normally a do it yourself kind of guy - but this seems beyond my limits.
The situation: no kids, no real estate, no physical abuse, no affairs. Married for ~5 years. I'm game for splitting our savings 50/50 even though I earned much/most of it.
I think I'd like a mediator approach - I'd really like to keep this civil and... well... cheap. Honestly I'm not sure how the spouse will respond to this - though I don't think it will be a surprise.
So... the questions:
1. What defines a good divorce lawyer?
2. What defines a bad divorce lawyer?
3. What should I ask in a consultation?
4. Or... does anyone have any references for the San Jose area?
