If you are charged with a crime your freedom is at stake. You should hire an excellent criminal defense lawyer. However, who do you hire? The first thing you should look into before you hire a criminal defense lawyer is how long they have been practicing law? You should then ask the attorney about their familiarity with the courts in the county where your case is pending. How often do they appear in that court? How many cases have they handled? Delve into their level of experience. For your hard earned money you want the best attorney for your money!
Communication With Your Attorney
Once you hire your attorney, discuss with him or her how you would like to be communicated with. Do you want to talk on the phone? Should you be communicating through e-mail or text messaging? When is the best time to call your attorney? It should be noted that most busy criminal lawyers are in court representing their clients during the mornings. It is usually better to call criminal defense lawyers in the afternoon when they are back in their office.
The Attorney’s Office
When you enter your attorney’s office look around and see if he or she has staff. How many people are in the office? Are their phones monitored on a 24 hours basis 7 days a week? If your attorney is busy, are there other attorneys in the office who can help you?
