How Do I Intelligently Choose A Criminal Defense Attorney?

Sooo? How do I intelligently choose a criminal defense attorney who is right for me and my case?

Answering your most asked questions like “best criminal attorney in Los Angeles” and “best criminal defense attorney in Pasadena.”

A person looking to hire a criminal defense attorney has to ask himself/herself that question! 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 attorney is right for me?

My administrative assistant, Cynthia, is the first person who has contact with a prospective client. Cynthia is often asked if the attorney has any experience handling cases exactly like theirs’ and what is my success rate? Often the client will directly ask me that same question. It is a great question, and one that needs to be asked, and honestly answered. But how do you know if your 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.” In order to introduce you to my firm’s qualifications and experience, I have assembled a partial list of some of my recent cases. Let the record (RESULTS, RESULTS, RESULTS) speak for itself. I invite you to check out my own personal track record in representing clients before the court. I have attached a partial list of specific case names, court locations, court case numbers, criminal charges, penalty exposure and the case disposition (what exactly happened in that particular case). See for yourself and make up your own mind. When you shop for your attorney, do your homework. Before hiring him/her ask to see their track record in writing and then go to the court and check them!

While each and every case is different and no one can honestly guarantee a particular result in any case — I and my defense team can guarantee our best efforts in handling your particular case to the best of our ability —and that’s no wolf ticket!
