Hiring a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. If you are seeking a competent criminal defense lawyer, you should check if the lawyer is board certified in criminal trial law, and if he or she has previous success in the courtroom. Before you decide, it is best to request written information about the lawyer’s qualifications and experience.
