How to Choose a Criminal Lawyer
If you have been charged with a criminal offense, a criminal defense attorney can be the most important person in your life. You should understand how to chose your criminal defense attorney and choose very carefully.
While the legal fees are certainly a major consideration, you should know that there will always be someone willing to handle your case for less. Below are a few factors to consider:
1. Experience. Although a less seasoned criminal lawyer might do good job, your future depends on his/her experience. Don’t be afraid to ask about a lawyer’s prior history and results; don’t be fooled by those who will guarantee results only to get you in the door.
2. Practice Area. It should go without saying that you want a criminal lawyer to handle your case, but a lot of criminal attorneys are merely general practitioners who represent anyone who is willing to pay their fees. You should choose an attorney who specifically focuses on the kinds of cases similar to yours.
3. Reputation. A criminal lawyer who comes highly recommended by past clients is always a good sign; don’t be afraid to ask for references. Online databases are another research tool, but beware that a lot of those recommendations are based on the fees the company charges the attorneys to be members.
4. Trust. You will be entrusting your criminal lawyer with a lot of responsibility, your freedom being the most important. Sit down with the prospective attorney, have a conversation and make sure you feel comfortable. If you don’t have trust in the attorney, then most likely that attorney will not have your best interests in mind.
5. Schedule. Most criminal lawyers take any criminal case that walks through their doors as long as the client has money. When this happens, often times that attorney is handling so many cases that he/she isn’t able to provide you with the needed time and attention you deserve and should demand. Unlike other areas of the law, a criminal attorney should never pass your case on to a paralegal or assistant.
