When you have been charged with a crime that you did commit or one that you are being falsely accused of, you may be left with little in the way of options. Luckily, we can help you in your time of need. Today we will walk you through some of the top questions you should be asking your attorney regarding your case and what can be done for you.
Is my attorney certified in criminal law? You should never just hand your case over to a lawyer who has not been practicing criminal law for an extended period of time. You want to look at the ten-year rule, which is an attorney who has spent at least 10 years practicing criminal law.
How many jury trials have they been involved in? You want an attorney who isn’t afraid to go to trial and get you the results you deserve. Many attorneys will try to settle cases outside of trial but settlement may not get you what you need. A willingness to go to trial could really help you because it could improve the overall outcome of your criminal case at times.
How much of the practice is dedicated to criminal law cases? A majority of their practice should be centered around criminal defense. Do not choose somebody who just covers it “every once in awhile.” We have experience in criminal defense and will work to get you the best results.
What kind of experience do they have? The best results come from an attorney who has experience. We have cultivated our skills to help you in your time of need and spend our time in the courtoom understanding the ways of criminal defense law so that we can help our clients receive a sentence less than that of what could have been offered to them.
What is the attorney’s reputation? Case results sometimes show a good reputation. Listen to those around you and seek out the best options depending on what charges you are facing and the circumstances of your case.
