Why You Need to Find the Right Defense Team for Your Criminal Charges

When you are accused of committing a serious criminal violation, such as a misdemeanor or felony, essentially every facet of your private and professional life will be jeopardized. Mishandling the situation can take away your freedom, drain your finances, remove professional licenses, and destroy your personal reputation. Depending on “just any” defense attorney, or an overworked public defender, increases the chances that all of these consequences will befall you. For this reason and more, it is crucial that you locate and retain the right criminal defense team for you and your unique case.

Experience & Results Make a Big Difference

There are so many factors that can make a criminal defense attorney or law firm either stand out or blend in. However, if you are in a hurry and need a trustworthy criminal defense lawyer by your side as soon as possible, you can focus on experience and case results.

There will never be a replacement for real-world experience, in any industry. A defense attorney who has actually been in the courtroom again and again, who has studied and handled hundreds of cases, and who has sat down and talked with countless clients about defense strategies will be more valuable than someone fresh to practice. When an experienced lawyer teams up with others of similar caliber in a law firm, the collective experience further amplified their worth. The situation gets even better for you if there are former prosecutors acting as your defenders, as these individuals will have irreplaceable insight into how the opposition will approach your case.

Of course, being in practice for decades means little if a criminal defense team cannot win any cases. After you find a law firm with great experience, check to see if they also have a surplus of beneficial case results. Not every winning case ends with an outright “not guilty” verdict, though. In many situations, the best possible result is a case dismissal or a charge reduction secured after careful negotiations.
