How Do You Find a Good Criminal Defense Attorney?

Posted by Thurston Lopes | Oct 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

If you've been charged with a crime, a good criminal defense attorney can often mean the difference between success and failure, or between a fine and jail time. While a lawyer can never guarantee that you'll win a case, a good criminal defense lawyer has the experience needed to guide you through the process, and can often get a better outcome than you could achieve on your own.

The Right Expertise

The lawyer you'll need depends on what you're being charged with. Criminal defense in Atlanta and Marietta, GA, is divided into various branches. For example, you'll find lawyers who specialize in local, state or federal cases respectively. It also makes a difference whether you've been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, since they have very different consequences. Finally, you'll have to find an attorney who specializes in the type of case you have, since they'll be most familiar with how to proceed and what you can expect over the course of the trial.

Good Communication

Once you find a potential attorney to take your case, schedule a consultation. Not only does this give the lawyer time to get to know more about your case details, it also gives you a chance to decide how comfortable you feel working together. Choose a lawyer who sets you at ease and puts you and your concerns first.

Get started by calling The Lopes Law Firm at (404) 589-9000 to request a consultation.
