- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?When you or someone you know are charged with a crime, selecting the right lawyer for the case can be the hardest part of the whole ordeal. With so many lawyers out there, you may be wondering how to choose a criminal defense lawyer for your immediate needs. Perhaps the single most important criteria in choosing the right criminal defense lawyer for you and your situation is trust. Considering that this may be your very first contact with or need for a criminal defense lawyer, how can you possibly know which one to trust? There are several factors to consider when choosing a criminal defense attorney. Considering these factors before making a final decision may increase the chances that the case will result in a dismissal, that the defendant will be able to achieve a satisfactory plea deal, or that the trial will result in a not guilty verdict. 1. What kind of reputation does the Attorney have? Attorneys earn their reputations from their peers and from the results they achieve for their clients. The importance of an attorneys reputation is difficult to overstate. Criminal defense can often involve complicated negotiations with judges and prosecutors, and attorneys with good reputations will have an advantage because they will be known, trusted and respected. Asking other attorneys who they would recommend is a good way to gauge an attorneys reputation. The Internet has also made it possible to read reviews of attorneys from former clients on websites such as Google or Avvo. 2. Prior experience. Understand all facts before determining if they are experienced enough for your case. An experienced attorney can better serve their clients. Also, their results will often be better than those of an inexperienced criminal attorney. 3. When choosing a lawyer you have the right to have an answer to all of your questions. Your criminal lawyer should be able to clearly explain the criminal charges against you, what they entail, what your legal rights are, what the prosecution has to prove, how the evidence can be used against you in court and, lastly but perhaps most importantly, the possible consequences you may face. 4. Call the firm and ask if they provide a free consultation so that you actually speak with the attorney that will represent you and then meet with them. See how interested they seem in you as a human being, and in your story. Do you feel like youve been heard? Criminal defense requires trust; trust requires communication; communication requires listening. How lawyers communicate with you is a gauge of how they will communicate with the jury, which is, at the end of the day, what will matter most.
