Valentine’s Day, the nationally recognized day of love, is right around the corner. While we typically think of it as the day of romance, what happens if someone “steals” your heart or if Cupid has a misfire and nicks you with an arrow?

Maybe you are pulled over after Valentine’s Day dinner having enjoyed too much wine or perhaps you’re accused of shoplifting your Valentine’s present.

If so, you’ll need more than a box of chocolates to remedy your predicament. You may very well need an experienced criminal lawyer.

The issues surrounding an arrest oftentimes has a grey area. Many discrepancies and different versions of the story exist. There may be personal matters or a misunderstanding that resulted in criminal charges. Regardless of the issues, you have rights. Rights that we work to protect.

Your criminal defense attorney serves as your most dedicated and diligent advocate. You do not have to face such a life-changing event on your own. Having representation can help even the odds.

During this stressful time, how do you go about choosing a criminal lawyer? Consider the following:

Comfort Level – First and foremost, you must feel comfortable telling the lawyer personal information.  Second, does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?  Your attorney must understand privacy, confidentiality and ensure that you are comfortable with the process.

Credentials – How long has the lawyer been in practice?  Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?  When your attorneys has many years of experience, they are more like to worked on a case very similar to your own.

Cost – How are the lawyer’s fees structured – hourly or flat fee?  Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?  Do they offer a free consultation?

City – Is the lawyer’s office conveniently located?  If so, they are likely to live in your area. But, they not only live in the community, they should be active in local activities and charities.
