TRUST The No. 1 quality to look for in an attorney is a feeling of trust. Your case is in your lawyer’s hands. If you don’t trust them, it’s impossible to navigate the process. EXPERIENCE Make sure your lawyer regularly handles criminal cases, especially cases like yours. Be sure he or she can tell you the elements of the crime for which you’re charged and the possible penalties for a conviction, in addition to potential defenses. Ask about your lawyer’s track record in these cases. ATTENTION Your lawyer needs to make you a priority. If they won’t promise you complete involvement in every aspect of your case, look elsewhere. HONESTY Your lawyer should answer your questions openly, even when those answers hurt. There is too much at stake to choose somebody who’ll tell you what you want to hear rather than providing an honest assessment of the good, bad, and ugly of your case.

The holiday season is a stressful time with gifts to buy, parties to attend, and relatives to contact. That stress, though, is nothing compared to the pressure you’ll face if you’re ever charged with a criminal offense. For most people, with the possible exception of mobsters, being arrested isn’t part of the plan. When it happens, you’re probably at a loss for how to proceed. After all, handling a criminal charge isn’t something you’re taught in school. If you are up against criminal charges, the No. 1 step you can take is to do your research and hire the best attorney possible. While bargain shopping may be useful when you’re buying a blender, it’s not advisable when your freedom is at stake. We hope that you choose our firm to help you fight the most important battle of your life, but regardless of your decisions, here are the characteristics to look for when considering a criminal defense attorney.
