Skilled Defense Against Serious Criminal Charges

If you or a family member is currently facing criminal charges, consider this when you choose an attorney to represent you:

  • Communication between a lawyer and a client is very important. Your criminal defense is an active process. Defense and prosecution actions are going on every day and you should be fully informed at all times.
  • Courtroom experience is critical. There are well-informed attorneys who simply lack the trial experience in important criminal cases. Select someone who hasfocused on criminal defense for a significant period of time.
  • Do not ignore chemistry. You are going to put your future in someone else's hands and spending a great deal of time with them while your defense is being prepared. All else being equal, wouldn't you rather hire someone who is easy to work with and with whom you get along?
