Experienced Criminal, DUI and Personal Injury Lawyer
Hire A Reputable Defense Attorney
You never know when you are going to need criminal defense lawyers. That may seem like an odd thing to say, but life has a way of creating unexpected and unforeseen circumstances that can impact our future and the health and welfare of our families. When those situations arise and you find yourself involved in a legal claim, do you really want to rely on someone who has little to no experience handling every challenge posed by these cases?
The answer is a resounding ‘no,’ and so the next question is this: What characteristics distinguish a reputable lawyer from one that isn’t so reputable?
Reputable criminal defense lawyers often have these characteristics or qualities:
- Years of Experience – the more time a lawyer has spent handling legal matters, the more likely it is that he or she has developed strategies to overcome significant challenges.
- Successful Track Record – experience doesn’t mean much if the lawyer you hire doesn’t have a track record of winning settlements and jury trials. A reputable lawyer should be able to provide you with a list of positive victories in the recent past that show success. That success should be in multiple practice areas, which is a strong indication of that lawyer’s overall legal expertise.
- Commitment To Personal Service – during your first consultation, you will get a good idea about a lawyer’s commitment to you as an individual client by asking the right questions. For example: How will the lawyer communicate with you? How often will you hear from your lawyer? Will the lawyer give you a private after-hours phone number?
- Most Importantly – Will the criminal defense lawyers you meet with at the initial consultation be there with you at every step of your case? Or, will a subordinate just out of law school be there with you to give you advise on your most important life decisions for you or family member?
