ď‚—What this means is that you have the right to remain

silent. You should only talk to law enforcement agents after you have spoken to a qualified criminal lawyer. By remaining silent until you speak with a qualified lawyer, you will help ensure that your criminal lawyer will be able to effectively protect your rights as well as possibly being able to help in reducing your sentence or fine.


ď‚—The second thing to consider when hiring a lawyer is

where to find the best one for you. You may want to start by visiting the courthouse and watching some of the criminal lawyers in action. If any case is similar to yours, pay close attention to the results and determine if that outcome is suitable for you..


You may also check with law associations and find out who are members of that association and practice criminal law in the jurisdiction your criminal charges are pending


ď‚—The third thing to consider when hiring a lawyer is

meeting with several of them prior to hiring one. Finding a good criminal lawyer can be difficult, but by visiting a few lawyers and asking them questions, you will be able to make a much better decision on whom to hire to represent you in court..


ď‚—There are several things you need to take into

consideration when hiring a lawyer, such as their experience in cases similar to yours, does this lawyer belong to any law associations, and does the lawyer practice in the jurisdiction where you charges are pending? Also, make sure to find out if the criminal lawyer offers a free initial consultation


ď‚—Once you have decided on a couple of potential

lawyers, ask them questions to narrow your decision down to the right one for your case. Here are a few questions you should consider asking:


ď‚—How long has the lawyer been practicing criminal

law? ď‚—Do any of the lawyer's past clients have positives

things to say about the lawyer? ď‚—Will the lawyer fight aggressively for you in regard to

the criminal charges you are facing?


ď‚—Does the lawyer charge a flat rate or does it vary

based on the direction of the case (will there be additional charges if the case goes to trial)? ď‚—Does the lawyer have the time and staff needed to

fully represent you in this criminal case?


ď‚—Having to hire a criminal lawyer can be one of the

most difficult decisions someone has to make. Without conducting some research on who would provide the best legal representation for you could result in a less favorable outcome. However, by asking the questions mentioned above, you should be able to find a criminal lawyer that will represent you fully and aggressively in court.
