Need an Experienced Defense Attorney?

Western New York Criminal Law Attorneys

Our system of laws was put in place to ensure public safety and to deter wrongful acts and conduct detrimental to society. Those who violate the law face fines, penalties, and incarceration. The criminal justice system tends to be both adversarial and complex. For these reasons, someone facing a criminal charge needs the help of a criminal defense attorney, regardless of guilt or innocence. A defense lawyer like those at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh can explain the options available after being charged with a crime, and offer advice about which to choose.

How Do You Choose A Criminal Law Attorney?

If you should find yourself charged with a crime, there’s a growing number of lawyers ready to serve you, and it may be confusing and difficult to choose. When you’re hiring an attorney, consider the following:

  • Experience – Make sure the lawyer you choose has extensive experience in criminal defense litigation. Ask if they have worked on cases similar to yours, whether the case went to trial and what was the verdict.
  • Comfort Level – You need to be completely comfortable with your criminal defense attorney. How does the attorney relate to you in conversation? Did you feel at ease telling your story? Does the lawyer seem truly interested in representing you and resolving your case?
  • Cost – You need to know how the lawyer’s fees are structured and the probable cost of pursuing each option available from the court.
  • Location and Availability – Your lawyer must have a conveniently located office near you, and should be readily available and accessible.
