The defense attorneys at the Lexington, KY, law firm of Anggelis & Gordon, PLLC understand what's to be expected from the legal system, and they use their 95 years of combined legal experience to ensure the best possible results for your specific case.
With that in mind, their attorneys offer the following tips for hiring the best criminal defense attorney:
- Knowledge Plus Experience: Does your attorney have specific experience with criminal law cases like yours in your area? Knowledge of the law and case experience are important, but so is knowledge of local customs and practices in the court where your case is being heard. Having criminal defense attorneys with both kinds of knowledge point toward more positive case results.
- Fire In The Belly: Your criminal defense attorney should be fired up about defending you, as well as knowing the law and procedures that apply. At a motion to suppress evidence hearing, your defense attorney should make the prosecutor feel the heat. Lawyers have an ethical obligation to provide their clients with zealous representation within the bounds of the law.
- Attorney-Client Comfort Zone: Do you feel your criminal defense attorney is someone you can trust? During your case, you will have to reveal sensitive information and trust the defense attorney to keep your confidences. If you’re not OK with that from the moment you talk to an attorney, keep looking.
