Choosing a criminal defense attorney to handle my case.
After 15 years of practicing in the field of Riverside Criminal Defense, I have come across thousands of individuals who find themselves caught up in legal matters. Some people, are unfortunately, at the wrong place and at the wrong time. Others, however, are anti-social and commit crime only to attempt to mitigate the consequences later.
When I first became a lawyer, I didn’t know much about criminal defense. Like anything else in life, we become good at what we do the more we do it. Whether you’re gardening, playing poker, dancing, or saving lives in the Emergency Room, experience makes all the difference.
As I self-reflect over 15 years of helping those who have committed crimes, I see one important thing that should resonate with the client in deciding how to choose the right criminal defense attorney. I call this the doctor/lawyer analogy. Let’s say you hurt your shoulder. You go to your primary care physician who most likely is a general practitioner. Of course, all doctors have taken classes in basic anatomy and many doctors can diagnose a sprain/strain etc. easily. However, let’s assume that you don’t have a basic injury, but something more serious that can’t be seen easily. At that point, you would go to a specialist.
The legal field is no different. If you need help with a criminal matter, go get a consultation from a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist. There aren’t that many of us around. It wasn’t easy becoming Board Certified. We have specialized experience in handling criminal matters and The State Bar of California acknowledges our expertise.
