Time is not exactly on your side after you have been arrested for and charged
with a crime in Maryland. The prosecution is already working on all the
ways it is going to argue for your conviction. You need to get reliable
legal advocacy, and fast. But how can you be sure that the person representing
you can handle the task and protect your rights? What makes a good criminal
defense attorney and how can you spot them?
Telltale Signs You Found a Reliable Criminal Defense Lawyer
Experience: If you are going to get a haircut, do you want a barber or stylist who
was just hired? Or do you want the person everyone in the neighborhood
trusts? Of course, you want the person with the reputation and experience!
So why would you settle for anything less when your freedom and wellbeing
are hanging the balance? A good criminal defense attorney will have years
of experience under their belt, showcasing their abilities necessary to
make a career in the challenging field of criminal law.
Recognition: The world of litigation has plenty of professional and prestigious organizations
that are committed to reviewing and rating attorneys all across the country.
To spot a reliable criminal defense lawyer, look for one who has been
recognized by some of these groups. Avvo and National Trial Lawyers are
some of the many that are well-known for being able to pick out and congratulate
the nation’s best attorneys.
Local: A winning criminal defense case often stems from a lawyer’s ability
to connect with and understand the needs and viewpoints of their clients.
Without an honest back-and-forth between the accused and their representation,
constructing a solid defense is inherently difficult. If you want a good
criminal defense attorney that
genuinely cares about the outcomes of the cases they take on, you should find someone
who is proud to say they are local and work closely with the clients in
their own community.
Dedicated: Part of the Fifth Amendment states that you can get a public defend automatically
appointed to you if you cannot afford an attorney. While these men and
women are certainly hard-working individuals, they are often afforded
incredibly limited amounts of time to work on a single case, sometimes
only meeting their clients the moment they both step before the judge.
It is unreasonable to think that someone working in that situation could
be truly dedicated to their clients’ livelihood and freedoms.
