Here are the 5 Most Important Things You Should Know When Looking For a Lawyer:
1 - Fees. Price is important. I list my Fees here and at other places on this site. I know it will take to properly handle a case, and provide a much higher than average level of experience and skill that matters in the most critical way: Results.
2 - Personality. You have to like the Lawyer you are going to hire. Your Lawyer is your spokesperson when dealing with the Prosecutor and the Judge. If you don't get good vibes, it's not likely they will, either.
3 - Trust. You have to trust your lawyer. I'll be honest with you and will never “sugar-coat” the truth. I hate unpleasant surprises, as I’m sure you do, as well. You won’t get any with me.
4 - Experience. You have to know that your lawyer is experienced in your kind of case and knows the Court where your case is being heard. I won’t ever waste your time talking about a case that doesn’t fit within my realm of my prior experience, or a Court that I'm not familiar with. This is precisely why I limit my Criminal and DUI Practice to the cities and Courts of Macomb, Oakland and Wayne Counties.
5 - Jail. The most important question is usually: "Am I going to go to jail?" The answer is almost always "no." It is my entire mission to avoid this for you. My focus is damage control; it's my job is to beat the case, or at least minimize the consequences and spare your Record, and I do that exceptionally well.
