Finding a good criminal defense lawyer can sometimes be challenging. Here are some tips to help you:
Referral: You may be able to find a lawyer through a friend or family member who has already worked with one or who is familiar with a lawyer’s practice.
Phone book: There are many phone book listings specifically designed for criminal lawyers. However, this option is very limited here because many criminal lawyers are choosing online listings on websites.
Online service: This service often allows for a thorough search of an attorney’s background by incorporating website and e-mail into the lawyer’s practice.
Search in professional organizations: Professional Lawyer listing websites offer referral services or online directories, which can be used to find a lawyer in your specific area.
Courtroom observation: You may decide to sit through some public sessions where criminal cases are being argued. If you find a particular lawyer impressive, you may contact the lawyer about the possibility of representing you.
