When you're being charged with a crime, the skills of your criminal defense attorney may be the only thing standing between the worst consequences of your charges and the best possible outcome for your case. With so much riding on this decision, it makes sense to interview several defense attorneys before choosing one to represent your interests.
Thompson Law Office, an experienced law firm based in Lexington, KY, recommends asking your lawyer:
Have You Handled Cases Like This Before?
Specific experience matters a great deal, so find someone with a track record of success handling issues like yours. They'll be able to mount a better defense and create a strategy based on an in-depth understanding of the relevant law.
Have You Appeared Before This Court Before?
Each court, and sometimes even individual judges, has specific ways in which they like to do things. Furthermore, an attorney who has cultivated a relationship with the court will probably be able to work with prosecutors to help you avoid the most serious consequences of your charges.
What Strategy Would You Recommend?
After learning about the details of your case, an effective defense attorney will be able to identify your best legal options. If they seem unsure or recommend further research, it may be a good idea to find someone who understands this area of the law a bit better.
