Macomb County Criminal Defense Attorney

If you’ve been charged with a crime, you will want to contact a Macomb County criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Being accused of a crime is a serious business. There are things that you might say or do that can severely prejudice your case down the road. As you begin your search, here are some ideas to consider.

Experience in Criminal Law

Anytime you need a lawyer, you want to retain one who is experienced and knowledgeable in the kind of law you need. Most lawyers today concentrate their practices in a specific broad area of law, such as family law or criminal law. Even criminal lawyers concentrate their practices in often very narrow areas of criminal law. If you’ve been accused of vehicular homicide, a lawyer who usually defends those accused of insider trading probably won’t be the best choice for you. So, look for a criminal lawyer with good experience, and particularly experience with the crime you’re charged with. Once you’ve determined that, you want to ensure that the attorney has a lot of experience and knowledge with the Macomb County criminal courts.

Personality & Compatibility

You’re probably going to spend some significant time with your Macomb County criminal defense attorney.  It’s best to feel comfortable that the two of you can get along and that you can trust the lawyer has your best interest at heart. Your attorney should be easy to work with and reasonably available to you. Finally, try to be sure that the attorney is efficient and will use time in ways that will reduce your hourly costs.

Reputation

If experienced at all, your attorney will have a reputation for skill or lack of it in the county courts. That reputation will significantly impact your Macomb County criminal defense attorney’s ability to work through the criminal courts smoothly and efficiently. Try to ask around, with court personnel or former clients, to see what that reputation is and whether it makes you more or less likely to choose this Macomb County criminal defense attorney.

Cost

There is no denying it; legal fees are very expensive. You will want to know what each attorney you consider charges as an hourly rate, and may also want to ask some of the following questions:

  • What is your hourly rate?
  • Do some kinds of cases get handled for a set fee? 
  • Is my case one of those?
  • Do you use support staff for some tasks to reduce costs?
  • Do I have to put down a retainer and, if so, how much?
  • Are there other costs or fees I have to pay?
  • When do I pay? Do I have to pay it all at once?
