When you need a criminal lawyer, you probably don’t have a lot of time to waste. You need help with your case and you need it sooner rather than later. But don’t let this sense of urgency stop you from picking the best criminal defense attorney possible. The Curry Law Firm wants you to remember these three things while you’re searching for an attorney to represent you in court.

First, hire a criminal lawyer who has experience in your particular type of case. For example, if you’ve been charged with a drug crime, you should find an attorney who has represented many clients in similar situations. Ask what their track record is, too. What kind of results have they gotten in cases similar to yours?

Next, look at their overall experience. As with many types of professional services, the more times a criminal defense attorney’s been in the courts and in front of a judge, the more comfortable they’ll be. That increases the likelihood that they’ll get the best outcome for you.

Finally, choose the attorney who seems to be the best fit for you and your needs. If you attempt to work with an attorney whose personality or communication habits are wildly different from yours, it may be difficult for you to achieve the results you want. You’ll be spending a lot of time working with your lawyer. You’ll also need to place a large amount of trust in your attorney and his or her abilities. If you’re totally incompatible, that becomes more difficult.
