The Importance of Hiring a Good Criminal Defense Lawyer
Most people don’t think much about lawyers until they get into serious trouble. You may hire a lawyer for issues related to business, real estate or settling an estate, but this is very different from a criminal case. When you are charged with a felony or even a serious misdemeanor, the type of lawyer on your side can have a huge impact on the outcome.
When it comes to choosing a defense attorney, you have to consider several factors. At the top of the list is experience. At Farar & Lewis LLP has a former District Attorney on our team, so we know the law inside out from the point of view of both defense and prosecution. This is an important distinction, as a good defense requires the lawyer to anticipate what the prosecutor is going to do.
Some people rely on public defenders to save money. These lawyers, however, are extremely overburdened with cases and do not have much time to devote to each client. Other people hire a friend or family member who practices law, even if this person isn’t experienced with criminal cases. This is another mistake that can result in your getting a less than expert defense. Remember, the outcome of a case can be the difference between you going free or facing time in prison.
