Being charged with a crime is never pleasant...in fact it can change your entire life. Frequently, being charged is coupled with extreme emotional, physical, and financial stress. If you are in such a situation, it is important to speak with an experienced lawyer who is ready to guide you through the complex legal processes associated with your charges. My criminal defense law firm is ready to fight for your rights and interests.
Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Here are a few to get you started:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What are the next steps?
