What You Should Look for in a Criminal Defense Lawyer

There are few things more stressful than being charged with a crime. Unfortunately, people are charged with crimes every single day in New Jersey and around the United States. That being said, all those facing criminal charges have one thing in common: they need an experienced attorney on their side. After being charged, there is nothing more important than hiring skilled legal representation who can effectively fight on behalf of their client. Our New Jersey criminal defense attorneys have compiled a short checklist of the qualities for anyone to look for in a criminal defense attorney. Read on to learn more.

Your Attorney Exclusively Practices Criminal Law

Though this is not entirely necessary, you should strongly consider this before proceeding with an attorney. Many attorneys who are primarily personal injury attorneys and only dabble in criminal law would be happy to take your case, but should you let them? The answer is probably not. An attorney who exclusively practices criminal law is usually best suited to effectively guide you through your criminal matter.

Your Attorney is Knowledgeable of the Law

While the law is complicated, your attorney should be able to answer all of your basic questions regarding your charges and your case off the top of their head. If your attorney cannot inform you of the potential charges you may face, as well as the potential strategy he or she may take with your case, it may be cause for concern.

Your Attorney Has Solid Online Ratings

The best way to gauge a business or an attorney is by simply checking their ratings on Google. Rem Katcher Law Group, P.C. maintains a 5-star rating, which speaks volumes about our dedication to our clients.

You Are Comfortable With Your Attorney
