What Kind of Experience Should You Look For in a Criminal Defense Attorney?

There are several areas of experience you should keep in mind when choosing a criminal defense attorney. Be sure to ask your potential attorney about their experience – they should be willing to share it with you so that there can be trust in the relationship you form.

Experience in Both Local and Federal Courts

Talk to your attorney about their experience defending clients at both the local and federal levels. Courtroom procedures vary at different levels, and you will want to be sure that your attorney knows the ins and outs, no matter where your trial takes place. You should also ask your attorney if they have experience in the courtroom that will handle your case. 

Experience in Your Area of Criminal Defense

Attorneys specialize in all manner of legal cases, and you will want to find an attorney who specializes in criminal defense and has experience defending cases similar to yours. Asking about your attorney’s experience during your initial consultation is key to ensuring that they can properly defend you. All criminal cases are unique, so you will want to work with an attorney who has experience with your specific charge.

You should also make sure that your lawyer takes the time to get to know you and your goals and will take your insights into your case and your situation into account when crafting your legal defense strategy.
