What Should I Look for in a Criminal Defense Attorney?

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

When looking for a criminal defense attorney, it is important to do your research. The lawyer you choose will be entrusted with the extremely important task of protecting your freedom and limiting your criminal liability. For this reason, it is imperative that you choose a criminal defense attorney with the skills and experience necessary to help you achieve the best possible outcome to your case.

The following is a list of what we suggest you look for in a criminal defense lawyer:

  • Experience with cases similar to yours
  • Success with cases similar to yours
  • Litigation experience
  • Abundant resources
  • Expert advisors on staff
  • Familiarity with local judges and district attorneys
  • Individualized attention – your law firm should treat you like the important person you are, not just a case number

Also, do not make price the main factor in your decision. The cheapest lawyer is not usually the best lawyer, and the stakes are too high to trust your fate to anyone but the best.
