Welcome back and thanks for joining us again. In our previous article, we discussed how to determine whether or not you need an attorney, and whether or not you are facing state or federal charges. Next we’re going to be looking at things you need to take into account when selecting an abuse and neglect defense attorney in Michigan.
Choose an attorney who can defend you properly
All defense attorneys practicing in the state of Michigan can defend you against pretty much any state charge, ranging from Drunk Driving, and drug crimes to Fraud and CPS defense. But not all of them are going to give you the best possible defense. Why? Because attorneys tend to focus their practices in certain areas, and choosing an attorney with no experience in handling the charges you are facing could mean a less-than-ideal defense. Choosing the right attorney to protect you is often the critical difference that makes or breaks a defense.
For example, at The Kronzek Firm, we have a number of attorneys on staff. While all of them are highly capable and very experienced, several of them specialize in particular areas of law. These include CPS defense, sex crime defense, bankruptcy, wills/trusts and even divorce. For this reason, we are able to meet every client’s needs by working together as a team, allowing those with more experience in certain areas to lead and guide a defense, which ensures the best possible outcome.
Determine what is most important to you
Obviously, the MOST important thing is having the best possible outcome. That goes without saying. However, beyond that, there are usually a few things that can “make or break” a professional working relationship, and you need to know what they are ahead to time.
Deciding before you start looking for the right criminal defense attorney what the qualities are that you most want in your legal representative, will help you to eliminate attorneys that you would have a hard time working with. That will make your situation less stressful and unpleasant than it already is. A good working relationship with your attorney is so important, because you are going to spend a good deal of time dealing with them, and so it’s critical that you are able to trust them. Premium level criminal lawyers in Michigan consider their clients to be a key member of the defense team.
Commonly, people look for qualities like being a good listener, a willingness to hear out the client when they have concerns and patience when explaining complex legal issues or answering questions about the case. These can make your case run more smoothly, and reduce time wasted on unnecessary things like arguing.
