How to Choose an Attorney?

If you are looking for a criminal defense attorney to represent you in Northern Kentucky or Cincinnati, you should first consider a number of factors. Unfortunately, most defendants start with price, which is the last thing you shoudl consider. If price is the major concern, a defendant should first consider whether they are eligible for representation by a public defender, or public advocate. In deciding an attorney, the first thing that should be considered is the reputation and experience of any attorney. Whether the attorney has handled the type of charges which you are facing and then discuss likely resolutions and how/why your case may differ from other similar cases. When meeting with an attorney, be sure to ask what defenses may be available. A lawyer should discuss with you how you may win the case and what the likelihood is of an acquittal. The criminal defense lawyer should also talk about the possibilty of a plea bargain and should explore alternate options by discussing with the prosecutor. There are a number of things that an attorney may present to the prosecutor in negotiating a plea deal. Those include: the nature of the crime, possible defenses and suppression issues, the defendant's criminal history, mitigating factors such as the defendant's family, work history, job, school, prospects of future, rehabilitation, treatment and impact to the victim should be considered. Finally, make sure that you are comfortable with your choice of attorney. If you are not confident that he/she is doing everything they can to represent your interest, go elsewhere. This may be one fo the most important decisions you make. Obviously, you should discuss price and costs with your attorney, but do not make it a deciding factor.
