What can a Good Criminal Defense Lawyer do for my Case?

A good criminal defense attorney can potentially limit or eliminate your exposure to jail and/or a criminal record. That’s why it’s important that if you retain a criminal defense attorney, make sure they have the credentials and experience to handle your criminal case. A good criminal defense attorney will likely be more expensive as opposed to a lesser experienced or unqualified attorney. Another old saying is you get what you paid for, and this somewhat holds true when you’re retaining a criminal defense attorney for your case. When you or a loved one is looking for a good criminal defense attorney, try and keep in mind the following;

  • Experience
    • An important thing to keep in mind is if the law firm or attorney has the experience to handle your criminal case. An experienced criminal lawyer will likely have been practicing criminal law for a number of years, and tried a number of cases.
  • Primary Area of Practice
    • Does the attorney or the law firm primarily practice in criminal law, or is it more like 30-40%. Attorneys that practice in other areas of law, such as personal injury, family law, real estate, or class actions, might not be quite as suited or even capable to effectively represent you or your loved one. An attorney or law firm that primarily practices in criminal law is likely better suited and equipped to handle your case due to many factors, including but not limited to their relationship with prosecutor.
  • Results
    • This one goes without saying as one of the most important if not the most important. Even though past results do not guarantee future results, it’s always important to look at a law firm or an attorney’s record of success. This can be done by looking through Google, Avvo, and/or Justia reviews. You can even ask him/her what they’re past record of success has been for your type of case/charges.
