There are a lot of things that you should do when you are looking choose an attorney for your case. First, it is very important that you have a lawyer. If you got fingerprinted, you need a lawyer.
What you want to do is meet with them in their office, you want to make sure they have an office. That they have a place in the area where your case starts. You want to make sure they have a good reputation in town, with their clients. You want to make sure they care about your case because it is going to take a while to resolve and you want to know that they’ve got it handled the entire way throughout your case.
I always suggest that people meet with three lawyers. It takes a lot of time, and it’s scary. You may want to pick someone right away. But you want to pick a person who works with you and that you are comfortable with. when you choose an attorney, it’s like picking a doctor. You wouldn’t but your heart in the hands of someone who has never held one before.
There are a lot of things you need to look at in every single case before any decision is made. That decision should always be yours, not the lawyer’s.
