How To Choose a Criminal Defense Attorney - Tip #4

Is the potential attorney knowledgeable about your charge?

Too often, attorneys advertise themselves as "General Practice" and tout themselves as a jack of all trades: i.e. expert on all areas of law . . . including Criminal Law.

Granted, there are probably some very good general practice attorneys who can navigate different areas of law. However, do you really want a general practice attorney defending you on DUI charges, Domestic Violence Charges or a Charge of Homicide when you are facing substantial jail/prison time? Probably Not.

Be Smart. Ask around. Ask for references. Ask your potential attorney questions about their practice and the last time they handled a criminal case with charges similar to the ones you are facing.

If you don't like the answers you receive, odds are: you need to search for an attorney elsewhere.
