Hiring a Lawyer
It's serious whenever you enter the criminal justice system. Currently, the U.S. has the world's highest incarceration rate. Therefore, you should choose an attorney carefully. Here are some tips to consider when hiring a criminal defense lawyer.
(1) Look for criminal case experience
Never allow yourself to be represented by an inexperienced attorney.
Our firm is exclusively dedicated to criminal defense and Mr. Fletcher has successfully handled over one-thousand criminal cases. Mr. Fletcher is also highly rated in Avvo, a respected rating service for lawyers.
(2) Look for a former prosecutor
As a former prosecutor at the Manhattan DA's Office, Mr. Fletcher knows the system and can easily spot critical mistakes in the case against you. This, in turn, will improve the handling of your case, help you achieve the outcome that you need, and give you a result that you will feel confident in.
(3) Ask yourself, “Who will really handle my case?”
Unfortunately, when you hire a lawyer, he or she may hand you over to an associate whom you never met or outsource your case to a different firm.
At our office, Mr. Fletcher will personally handle your case from start to finish. You will never have to go to court wondering who your attorney is.
(4) Hire someone you're comfortable with
Your consultation is not only a chance to allow Mr. Fletcher to assess the facts of your case, but also an opportunity to see if you feel comfortable with Mr. Fletcher as your lawyer.
