Hiring a Defense Attorney: What to Look for?

Fresno County has a diverse population that includes a wide stratification of incomes, background, education, and ethnicities.  One constant factor that is present across all boundaries is that good people sometimes find themselves in a bad place.  Many good people make the long journey through life, and during this adventure called life, they find themselves in an unfamiliar position of being accused of a crime.  Unlike people who are career criminals, or occasional offenders, these people find themselves confused in what to look for in an attorney.  Some shop for price, which is like buying a car based on being the least expensive one on the car lot and may not have their needs met by the budget priced vehicle. Some have no idea where to look, or incorrectly believe a quality attorney would be price prohibitive for their budget.  However, a topflight attorney can be found at an affordable price.

In the following blogs, I have addressed several aspects of what a defendant should look for in a defense attorney.  Price, intelligence, education, and a general connection as a human being capable of communicating with each other are all key aspects of hiring the right attorney for your needs.

The following blogs are not intended to be legal advice.  Perhaps you will find the reading helpful in choosing a Defense Attorney that suits your needs.
