How to select a Criminal Defense Attorney

When you have been accused of a crime and may be facing serious consequences such as jail time, fines, or probation, you will need an attorney with criminal defense experience, and who has a good reputation with the courts, judges, and prosecutors.  Once you have been released from jail by virtue of a bail bond, you will need to start preparing for your future court dates.  An experienced criminal defense attorney will help you prepare for court.  You will have the best chance for a successful defense if you involve an attorney right away.  A good attorney may be able to get the charges against you dropped in the early stages of an investigation.  Search online for attorneys in the area where you were arrested and where you will be going to court.  Select the top three or four attorneys that show up in your search results and call them for a consultation.  Most reputable attorneys will provide this service free of charge.  This consultation is your chance to interview the attorney before hiring them.  Remember they are working for you so it is very important you feel comfortable with the attorney you select.  You should also look the attorney up on the State Bar website to make sure there are no active complaints against them.
