Anytime a person is accused of a criminal offense its a serious matter requiring the guidance of a smart lawyer who knows how to best defend people accused of criminal acts. A number of times when a person is on the receiving end of the judge’s bench, the poor bastard defendant is being represented by inadequate legal counsel which normally results at the proverbial “book” being thrown at the accused.
This is why its important to invest at least some time in vetting whichever criminal case lawyer you’re considering hiring to represent you on your case on your day in court.
Tips for Finding a Good Attorney
We’ve worked in and around the legal business for years. During our experience we’ve met a number of top DWI lawyers and Top criminal defense attorneys. The list below represents what we believe are the best steps for finding a good lawyer to represent you on your case.
- Ask the lawyer to show you his case results. If he doesn’t have them, he’s not any good.
- Look for reviews of the lawyer online.
- Check out lawyer review sites like AVVO and see what people have said. If the lawyer you’re considering isn’t listed, I’d say find another lawyer.
- Ask your friends and relatives. If they know of a good attorney, they’ll let you know.
Although we work in the Houston & Galveston regions of Texas, these times should be good for anyone looking for an attorney to represent them no matter where they live in the United States of America.
