Questions to Ask A Criminal Defense Attorney Before Hiring Them
If you’ve been charged with a crime, having the backing of a seasoned Huntington criminal defense attorney can make all the difference in not just the outcome of your case but also how you deal with the process. Unfortunately, not every lawyer will be the right one for you and your situation. You must ask the right questions to find out if the attorney you are considering to represent you is one who can obtain the possible outcome. Here are some essential questions that you should ask when interviewing a criminal defense attorney:

  • How long have you been a practicing criminal defense attorney?
  • What are your credentials?
  • Have you handled cases like mine before?
  • What is your success rate?
  • Do you have any previous client testimonials that I can read?
  • How often do your cases go to trial?
  • How often do you appear in the courthouse where my case will be heard?
  • What strategy would you recommend for handling my charges?
  • How strong is my case?
  • What will my role be in the case?
  • How and how frequently will we converse?
  • How long will my case last?

Choosing the Right Huntington Beach Criminal Defense Lawyer to Defend You
When looking for a Huntington Beach criminal defense attorney to help you protect your rights and defend against your charges, it’s critical that you pick someone who not only has a proven track record of success but who also has success defending against charges for specific crime or crimes of which you have been accused.

Why does this matter? California criminal law is nuanced and complicated. There are numerous defense strategies that could work well against assault charges. Still, they won’t help you avoid a conviction for fraud.

On the same token, you don’t want to make the mistake of choosing legal counsel with too narrow of a focus. Frequently, during the judicial process, further investigation by law enforcement can lead to additional charges on top of what you are already facing.

Suppose you are arrested initially for a DWI. Then law enforcement officials start searching around, discovering unregistered weapons, illegal drugs, or stolen goods in your car. In that case, their discoveries will result in separate charges that a lawyer who only specializes in DUI/DWI might not have the knowledge or experience to help you fight the additional charges.
