Help Me Hire An Attorney In Northern Kentucky!

Fortunately there are many very high quality attorneys practicing in Northern Kentucky.  Throughout Boone, Campbell and Kenton Counties, there are lawyers handling criminal, DUI and other types of cases, many of which do an excellent job in representing those accused of criminal activity. The first piece of advice is to ignore the fees.  While this is the first question that many potential clients ask, it may actually be the worst predictor of the effectiveness of representation.  Certainly the least expensive attorney is not the best for most types of litigation.  You wouldn't go to a doctor or dentist simply because they are cheap and you should not use that to pick your attorney.  Of course cost must be considered, but it should not be a deciding factor in determining your attorney.  Equally unimpressive is the most expensive attorney. Attorneys generally charge what they can get for similar types of cases.  Lawyers area also subject to the economy of supply and demand: that is, the more in demand an attorney is the more he/she can generally charge.  While this may be some measure of success, there are many occasions that the hype around a particular attorney is just that.  The legend may be larger than reality. An attorney should take the time to discuss your case with you.  If a fee seems high, ask the lawyer to advise if that is a normal fee for the type of case handling or if there is a reason if it is above the normal rate.  Examples may include a higher fee if the defendant is an athlete or celebrity in that the additional time talking to the media is reflected.  Also, sometimes a client who is particularly difficult may demand a higher fee because of the anticipated additional time with that client.  Other clients demand a higher fee because of the publicity of a case. Ask questions about the lawyer's experience in handling these types of cases.  Also ask about their experience with the specific court, prosecutor and judge.  It is usually a good idea to hire a lawyer who regularly practices in the county in which you are charged.  An experienced criminal defense attorney will not generally make promises.  They may make predictions or give you the most likely outcome, but promises are not part of the vocabulary as the courts (and juries specifically) are not always predictable.  Further, any prediction is only based on the facts as they are relayed and the reality is often different from another point of view or witness. If you wish to consult with a local attorney in Covington about case in Boone, Campbell or Kenton county, email [email protected] or call 859-581-6453 and ask to schedule a time with Michael W.
