Hiring a Criminal Lawyer

In evaluating a criminal defense attorney, the most important factors to consider are experience, fee structure, and simply whether you like that lawyer or not.

Typically, criminal defense attorneys specialize in certain areas of criminal law. For example, a criminal defense attorney may concentrate on white collar crime cases, DUI and traffic cases, or felonies that involve violence. It is important that your attorney is licensed in your state and that he or she is well versed on the criminal procedure in the jurisdiction in which you are charged with a crime.

Generally, criminal defense attorneys charge an hourly fee and a retainer to being representation. However, certain criminal defense attorneys may just charge a flat fee for certain uncomplicated matters.

Being charged with a crime can be very stressful and traumatic. If you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony you should be represented by a criminal defense attorney who can defend your rights and preserve any defenses that you have in a timely manner.
