Here are 3 important things you should know when looking to hire a criminal lawyer:
Experience. You have to know that your lawyer is experienced in your kind of case and knows the court where your case is being heard. My team and I only take cases that fit within our realm of our prior experience, and in courts that are familiar to us. This is why we limit our criminal and DUI practice to cases pending in the district and circuit courts of Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and the surrounding counties.
Fees. Price should NEVER be any kind of secret, although it almost always is, except with our practice. Our Fees are listed on both our site and blog, and can be found here. Our firm doesn’t compete with anyone else on a cost basis. Instead, we focus on charging enough to properly handle a case based upon our unsurpassed level of experience and skill to produce the best results possible.
Personality. You have to like and trust the lawyer you are going to hire, because he or she is your spokesperson when dealing with the prosecutor and the Judge. My team and I will always be completely honest with you, and we'll never sell out by just telling you what you want to hear. Nobody likes unpleasant surprises - and you won't get any with us.
Beyond these 3 things, everything else is pretty much just fluff and hype. As a potential consumer of legal services, you should avoid scare tactics every bit as much as promises that sound too good to be true.
When you need to find a lawyer, look for honesty, solid information and obvious integrity. There is simply no downside to being a wise consumer and exploring your options.
Anyone looking for a lawyer for a criminal charge should do their homework and read around as much as they can. One of the best ways to learn about an attorney is to see how he or she explains things, and how they explain themselves, as well.
is one of the very biggest and most informative on the entire internet, much less in Michigan. With 2 new articles each written and published every week, we have well over 1300 in our fully searchable archives.
These detailed articles examine every aspect of and step in criminal, driver's license restoration and DUI cases. Be sure to check it out because there's nothing else like it anywhere.
When you read enough of what any lawyer has written, you can get a rather accurate sense of his or her "voice," and approach to things.
Of course, any article worth your time should be informational, and not just a platform for fear-based, or "call now" marketing. A noticeable lack of detail and real information is very telling.
Facing a criminal or DUI charge is stressful. You are undoubtedly feeling that right now as you look to find the right lawyer.
You can learn a lot by doing some comparison shopping, and you absolutely should do just that.
