Criminal Defense From A Former Prosecutor

Why a big price tag does not guarantee the best defense

Everybody makes mistakes, and if yours resulted in criminal charges, you might be wondering what to do next. Whether this is your first charge or fifth and whether the charge is a misdemeanor or felony, you should invest in the best representation available for your defense.

Rather than letting an expensive price tag fool you, consider the following reasons the most expensive attorney may not necessarily guarantee you the great defense you deserve.

You should hire somebody with experience

Any attorney can charge exorbitant fees, but this does not necessarily mean he or she has the experience that will best serve your case. If you are looking for an attorney to represent you and defend you against the charges you are facing, you should be more concerned with finding somebody who has experience in the legal area of your charges.

First is not necessarily best

After an arrest, many people receive “jail mail” from attorneys offering representation. This will likely be the first offer you receive, but that does not mean it is the best. In fact, you should do additional research before deciding on which lawyer is best for your case. Because of the costs of such advertising campaigns, these attorneys may even cost you more money.

Invest in meaningful representation

The best investment you can make is in meaningful representation from an attorney who cares about your future. According to the Los Angeles Times, crime and arrests are on the rise, so it is more important than ever to get a reliable attorney on your side. When you are facing criminal charges or seeking expungement, forming a relationship with your lawyer is an essential component of your defense, and that is something that you cannot buy.

Having a good defense is imperative if you are facing criminal charges. Contact an attorney and do research before choosing who will represent you in court.
