Criminal Defense Attorney Offers 3 Communication Tips, Beacon, New York

If you have been accused of a crime, your top priority should be to hire a respected criminal defense attorney. After doing so, your primary job is to maintain an open line of communication with this legal professional. As a trusted attorney in the Hudson Valley, NY, area, Anthony DeFazio Law P.C. understands that communicating with your lawyer can be difficult and potentially intimidating.

Here, he lists three tips to help facilitate the transfer of information between client and attorney: 

  • Criminal Defense AttorneyBe Honest: We all have things we are ashamed of and would prefer to keep to ourselves. However, when it comes to legal help, secrecy or hesitation can be detrimental to your case. Be open and honest with your criminal defense attorney throughout the entire process to prevent surprises that may compromise your case.
  • Get Organized & Be Detailed: Organize the information you already have regarding your case and bring it with you when you meet with your lawyer. Be as thorough and detailed as possible when describing your side of the story. Seemingly innocuous details can sometimes make all the difference.
  • Keep Your Lawyer Informed: Things may change over the course of your case. When they do, you should inform your criminal defense attorney promptly. If you aren’t sure whether a change is relevant, tell them anyway. It’s better for your legal guide to have superfluous information than to be left out of the loop on something important.

If you call the office, you can expect to hear directly from him that same business day. Contact this trusted attorney today at (845) 831-3606 to schedule a consultation, or visit the website to learn more about his criminal law expertise.
