Most people who wind up facing criminal charges don’t know where to begin to defend themselves. That’s why they turn to criminal defense attorneys for help. But in the Beaumont area, you’ve got a lot of choices when it comes to criminal defense representation. While many of these firms might look the same at first glance, there truly are significant differences between them. No two law firms are alike, which means you want to carefully consider your options before choosing the legal team that you think will best represent your interests.
One differentiating factor is experience. Some law firms are one-attorney practices with the attorney being relatively new to criminal law. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but a lot of attorneys with less experience are going to struggle to use the rules of evidence as well as statutory and case law as aggressively as you need. More experienced attorneys, on the other hand, are going to know how to raise evidentiary issues, deal with juries, and craft the compelling legal arguments you need on your side.
Just because a firm says they practice in a particular area of law doesn’t mean that they’re good at it. That’s why you might want to look into firms that have insight into how the criminal justice system operates. Being founded by a former assistant district attorney, our legal team knows how law enforcement and prosecutors operate, which allows us to easily identify weaknesses in their cases that other defense attorneys might miss.
A lot of law firms take on so many cases that they don’t have time to really dedicate themselves to their cases. That’s not so at our law firm. We take the opportunity to hear our clients’ stories and get to know them one-on-one. We give every client the customized legal approach that his or her case needs and deserves.
Don’t make your decision lightly
We know that facing criminal charges can be stressful and scary, and choosing a criminal defense attorney might not seem like that big of a choice. But the reality of the situation is that your choice of attorney could make all the difference in your case. With that in mind, we urge you to research your options and only choose the firm that you think has the experience, insight, dedication, and the proven track record of success that will best situation you for a favorable outcome.
