Hiring a criminal defense lawyer is something you hope you will never have to do. If you are facing criminal charges however, you’ll need a good criminal defense lawyer who will go the extra mile to defend your rights and keep you out of jail. Since hiring a criminal defense lawyer is not something you do every day, it’s difficult to know what to look for when searching for one. That’s why we’ve listed a few tips below to help you choose a good criminal defense lawyer.
- Search for a lawyer who has handled similar cases to yours.
- Try to find a lawyer who has had court appearances in the court district in which your case is being tried in.
- Set up a first consultation (they are normally free) with all of the lawyers who you think could be a good fit. Make sure you are prepared and bring all the information that you have regarding your case so they can give you an assessment of the case. If a lawyer doesn’t come across as confident or you feel like it’s not a good match, move on to the next one.
- Try to get a good indication of how much legal fees will be in different scenarios (if the case goes to court or not).
- Once you’ve made your choice, provide your lawyer everything they ask for. Make sure to communicate regularly so you know what’s going on with your case.
