How to Find the Best Criminal Defense Lawyer

June 10th, 2019 by Attorney Dan Carman

Obstruction of Justice is a federal and a state crime.

If you’re facing criminal charges, you’re going to want to find the best criminal defense lawyer you can get. You may qualify for a public defender, but that means it’s not likely that you’ll be able to choose your own lawyer. Your best bet is generally to hire your own criminal defense attorney, ideally finding an attorney who specializes in defending against the types of charges you’re facing.

As part of your search, contact Dan Carman. He offers a free initial consultation; and even if he’s not the right attorney to defend you, he can help you find the one who is. Reach out today, and remember it’s worth the time and expense to get the best defense possible.

How to Find the Best Criminal Defense Lawyer

One of the first things you should do when looking for a criminal defense attorney is to look for recommendations. Talk to defense attorneys, as well as any family members or acquaintances who may have faced similar charges in the past. This can help you find trusted attorneys through your own social circle.

It can also be helpful to do a web search for criminal defense lawyers in your area. You can search consumer sites for reviews, as well as looking through your state’s bar association for referrals. This will help you find the best criminal defense attorneys who fit your budget.

You could also try spending some time around the courthouse and seeing if any of the criminal defense attorneys impress you in court. This can be helpful if you have time to visit the courthouse and take in some of the personalities in your local area.

Visiting the websites of local criminal defense attorneys can also help you form a judgment of who is worth talking to. If an attorney’s website looks professional and credible, you can generally trust that the attorney is also professional and credible. Take some time getting to know the law firms around you.

Ethics boards can be another source to help you weed out bad attorneys. Attorneys who have several ethical violations on their record may not be the best ones to represent you when the time comes for your case to go to court. Pay extra attention to these sites in your search.

Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, set up a consultation with the attorney or attorneys who fit what you’re looking for. By this point, you should be close to making a decision. If you’ve done your homework, you should be able to trust your gut after you’ve done your consultations with the attorneys left on your list.
