What Should I Consider Before Hiring an NJ Criminal Defense Attorney?

There are few things more damaging to a person’s reputation and life than being convicted of a crime. As you may know, a criminal conviction can impact your life for years down the road, which is why it’s imperative that you hire the right attorney to represent you in your case. Before hiring an attorney, you should ask yourself several questions to ensure they’re the right attorney for you. Please continue reading and reach out to our seasoned Monmouth criminal defense attorney to learn more about the things you should look for when choosing a lawyer to represent you.

What to Look for in Your Criminal Defense Attorney

There are several things to look for when selecting a criminal defense attorney for your case. Just some of the questions you should ask yourself are as follows:

  • Can the attorney answer your questions? Rather obviously, it is imperative for your attorney to answer your most basic questions. If your attorney can’t answer questions you have about your case, the potential charges you may face, and the potential defense your attorney will use, he or she may not be the best attorney for you. Having knowledge of the law and how to defend clients against potential charges is the most important quality of any criminal defense attorney.
  • Do you feel comfortable with and confident in your attorney? As you know, any good relationship is founded on the basis of trust. You need to trust your attorney and feel comfortable in their presence. If you do not trust your attorney, or you notice any “red flags,” your attorney likely is not the right one for you. Our legal team will keep you updated as updates occur, we’ll remain available to answer each and every question you have, and we will do everything in our power to fight the charges you’re facing.
  • How is your attorney rated on Google? In today’s day and age, we seldom do anything without first checking up on reviews. Our criminal defense firm maintains a near-5-star rating on Google, a testament to our dedication to our clients.
