How do I choose the right attorney for my case?

The ones on TV seem like theyd be to busy to spend enough time on my case. But I also don't just want to find one in the phonebook. I don't want to ask my family because they don't know I was arrested.

    Go meet with three different attorneys in different firms and ask them what they can do for you. Go with who you feel comfortable with. Of course I recommend an attorney who will give you straight answers and listen to your concerns.

    I'm sure you have heard the commonly used idiom, "Don't judge a book by its cover." In other words, try not to judge whether a particular attorney has the talent, experience, or time to devote to your case, simply by their method of advertisement. If you contact any of the attorneys you see on television, in the phone book, or online, see if they will take a moment to visit with you about your case. Ask the attorney what kind of experience he or she has in criminal law. Use that opportunity to see if you get a good feeling from the attorney and want to set up a face-to-face visit with the attorney. Follow your instincts!

    Schedule an appointment or talk with one by telephone and get a "feeling" for the attorney. Look them up on the internet if possible.

    Call and talk to an attorney. If they won't talk to you on phone, don't hire them. Hire the person you feel comfortable with.
