Three Things To Look For In A Criminal Defense Attorney
Posted on Thursday, May 1st, 2014
Whether you have been charged with shoplifting, DUI or murder, one thing stays the same: you need the help of a qualified criminal defense attorney. Amerio Law has been providing criminal defense to those who need it in the Sacramento area for many years. Amerio Law can help you with any criminal charge and protect your rights as you move through the legal process.
Here are some tips on what to look for when engaging a criminal defense attorney:
1) Always choose an experienced attorney. An attorney who has experience in working with those who are charged with crimes is always preferable to one who is not used to dealing with the criminal justice system. In fact, experience may be the most important quality you can find in a criminal defense attorney. This attorney has had time to build networks and relationships within the criminal justice system, so you may be able to work out a better plea arrangement or have your charges dismissed.
2) Always choose an attorney who communicates. It is very important that you have unimpeded communication with your criminal defense attorney. Your attorney should answer questions and address any concerns you have without being condescending or giving you vague answers. Your attorney should have respect for you and your feelings, no matter what crime you are currently charged with.
3) Always choose an attorney you trust. The bond of trust between an attorney and a client is one that is sacred, but it is the most important factor of all when you are trusting your lawyer with your freedom and perhaps with your life. If you do not feel this bond of trust between you and your attorney, you may not be completely honest with him or her and that can lead to disaster. Further, you may spend your time worrying about the outcome of your case and giving yourself unnecessary stress.
