The 6 Worst Mistakes You Can Make Hiring A Defense Attorney

In the 30 years that I have been an attorney, I have seen firsthand the mistakes that clients routinely make when deciding who they should hire to represent them or their loved ones who are charged with crimes.

  • The majority of prospective clients have never been in trouble before and don’t have a grasp of the criminal justice system.
  • Their nervousness about “being in trouble” leads them to choose an attorney who generally is overworked and unable to focus on their specific case.
  • Over time, I have seen prospective clients choose the wrong attorney for the wrong reason. Oftentimes, a client will decline to retain me, only to return six months later telling me that exactly what I had originally said is coming to pass.

There are general “themes” when the client returns to my office and what follows are the 6 most common “themes” that seem to happen when they hired the wrong attorney.
