Finding the Right Criminal Defense Lawyer for Your Case
If you have been arrested, you know that finding a qualified criminal attorney in can be a difficult task. The qualifications of any professional vary greatly based on the amount of time spent focusing on a specific area and, of course, the quality of “hands on” experience.
One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a lawyer is criminal jury trial experience. Of course, motion practice and negotiation skills are just as important depending on the type of case. Make no mistake, however, when interviewing criminal defense attorneys, the amount of cases handled, doesn’t always translate to the amount of cases tried. Always be certain to be very clear when asking a prospective criminal attorney questions. When uncertain, always ask for a response in writing. Representations that are reduced to writing and provided to a prospective client by the consulting criminal attorney serve to not only protect the individual seeking out that attorneys help but also provide piece of mind. Individuals should always be cautious where an attorney refuses to back up claims asserted with documentation.
Practicing Criminal Defense is Complex
Criminal defense is a highly technical area of law, coupled with the fact that it is one of the few areas that is entirely encompassed in litigation (trial work). Defense attorneys must be prepared to appear before judges on criminal matters on an almost daily basis. Knowledge of a particular jurisdictions practices and procedures is often necessary to adequately represent the needs of clients charged with criminal violations. In order to determine how many cases a particular attorney has appeared on in a given county, simply visit that area’s Clerk of Court website.
Criminal defense attorney William Moore has been defending individuals accused of committing crimes for locally for over two decades. If you have been arrested, it is important that you understand that not all neighboring county areas are the same. Diversionary programs are limited as compared to other areas throughout the State and any significant plea-bargaining is rare. Prosecutors are given very little autonomy to break-down criminal charges and are more often to push even the weakest of cases all the way through trial rather than to negotiate a resolution that includes any significant form of leniency.
