Everyone who is accused of a criminal offense will need a criminal defense attorney. It would be very difficult, if not impossible, to represent yourself. You should start this process as early as possible so that you have time to select the right attorney and plan your defense strategy properly.
The first thing you should do when selecting a criminal defense attorney is to determine whether or not they’re on your side. While some lawyers do focus more on one type of law over others, good ones can defend you against any charge from speeding tickets to murder. That being said, make sure they focus on criminal law. This may seem like an elementary step but many people throw money at any lawyer who’ll take their case. But you should never assume that just because they’re willing to take your case, they’ll do an effective job. Instead, pick a criminal defense law firm.
When looking for a criminal defense attorney, it’s important to choose one with whom you feel comfortable. This isn’t the time to be shy; if you don’t feel like sharing your problems with them then you shouldn’t hire them. They need to know everything about the circumstances surrounding your case. Even something seemingly small could make all the difference in how they approach your case and determine an appropriate course of action. Make sure the attorney is willing to disclose enough information for you to make an informed decision about their services. Don’t hesitate to ask questions regarding fees either. This is a business and you need to know what it’s going to cost you.
When discussing your case, tell your potential criminal defense attorney exactly how you feel about the charges and what led up to them. If they don’t listen or don’t seem interested in understanding both sides of the story then they aren’t right for your case. It doesn’t matter if that person deserves it; you want someone willing to put forward their best effort on your behalf even if they don’t like you personally.
