What Questions Do I Ask a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

If you are looking for a criminal lawyer in Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, or Florida in general, you will want to ask your prospective criminal defense lawyer a few questions before asking them to take your case.

What is your background and experience?

You want to know that your criminal lawyer has defended clients facing criminal charges like yours. An attorney who only defends DUI clients will probably not be a good choice to defend you against an embezzlement charge. 

What are my legal options?

You don’t want surprises in your case. Ask your criminal lawyer what happens if you plead guilty or go to trial. You’ll want to know what possible sentence you’re facing. Is it a fine or incarceration?

How will you manage my case?

Is this the criminal lawyer who will be handling your case or does he rely on an associate? How can you contact the attorney and how soon can you expect responses?

At The Cochran Firm South Florida, our experienced criminal lawyers welcome your questions. We want you to feel confident in our defense of your criminal charge.
