You Can't Afford To Compromise When It Comes To Criminal Defense

Aug 17, 2007
Hiring trial attorneys to handle a criminal defense or other serious legal matters should not be a process that's taken lightly. The lawyer or lawyers you hire could very well have your life in their hands. So, if proving your case and doing it well is a priority (and why wouldn't it be) than getting the best is a must.

Almost every week there's a report somewhere about a person who was falsely accused and convicted on criminal charges. A good attorney can help ensure his or her clients don't add to the statistics. Good attorneys know how to handle trials inside out and backwards and they fight tirelessly to see that justice is served on behalf of their clients. If proving your innocence is a must, then finding the best lawyer is key.

No matter how compelling your case is or how well you can prove your innocence, the justice system isn't perfect. Mistakes happen. Good trial attorneys can minimize the chances for this.

Before hiring any attorney, you need to do the following things:

* Shop around. Don't just look at fee structures. If you're innocent, you need to prove that no matter the cost. The consequences of doing otherwise can be monumental. Especially in the midst of a legal matter it may seem like you have no time to shop around, but it's precisely at this time you must be picky and deliberate about who you hire.

* Find an attorney you can talk with. If you don't like the person representing you or at least cannot communicate with him or her, you have a problem. Be certain the person you hire is one you can clearly communicate your side of the case to.

* Check the lawyer's background. Has this person been to trial before? Did he or she win? How many times? What certifications and memberships does he or she have? What's the overall success versus failure track record?

* Does the attorney work alone or with a firm? What kind of support system is in place to help this person win cases? This can mean investigators, a research staff, assistants and so on. Find out. A lawyer who goes it alone can be very effective, but one who has a sufficient support system can be even more so.

* Has the attorney handled cases like yours before? This can make a big difference. Criminal law is different from tax law by a long shot and going to trial is a very different experience than settling out of court in a civil suit. Get the best expert in the area you need expertise in.

Although there are no guarantees in the justice system, if you are innocent you need the best representation you can possibly get to prove your case. Mistakes and oversights happen, but good trial attorneys can help minimize the chances of things going wrong. The only thing worse than being accused in a crime you didn't commit is being convicted of it. Fight back. Fight smart. Get good attorneys to defend your case.
