How To Find The Best Criminal Defense Attorney
How to find the best criminal defense attorney - Law Office of Tom R. Medrano - Pasadena, California

How do I intelligently find the best criminal attorney who is right for me and my criminal court cases?

In a Southern California city such as El Monte, Glendale, or Pasadena, criminal attorneys are a dime a dozen. But how do you find the best criminal attorney out of the many top criminal lawyers in California? Which criminal attorney in Pasadena is highly knowledgeable in DUI/DWI law, felony law, juvenile law, or domestic violence law? A person looking to hire a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney has to ask himself/herself these questions! People are surprised to learn that many of my clients are first time offenders, who because of suspicious circumstances are arrested and charged with a crime. Sound familiar?

Many of my clients are word of mouth referrals, referred by friends, family or their lawyer. Being referred is the first step, but how do I, as a prospective client, know if this criminal defence attorney is best for me? My administrative assistant, Edna, is the first person who has contact with a prospective client.  Edna  is often asked if the criminal defense lawyer has any experience handling criminal court cases exactly like theirs’ and what is my success rate? Often the client will directly ask me those same question.

Those are great questions that need to be honestly answered. But how do you know if your criminal defense attorney is honestly telling you the truth? “Buyer beware” – there are a lot of attorneys out there who will exaggerate the truth when it comes to their qualifications and experience - my investigator, refers to this puff as the attorney “selling wolf tickets”.

To help you find a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who is right for you and your criminal court case, here are five simple steps to help you choose a top criminal defense attorney.

DUI/DWI Defense Lawyers

Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, controlled substance, medication, or prescription that impairs the driver's ability to operate the vehicle is against the law. Driving under the influence is one of the most common criminal offenses in our society. It can be charged as either a DUI misdemeanor or DUI felony, depending upon your record or whether there were serious injuries. Preparation, knowledge, and an excellent DUI lawyer are among your best defenses. We are expert DUI Lawyers and we're here to help.
