Being charged with a crime can be a terrifying prospect. The possibility of being sent to jail or prison is a daunting experience. You may have no idea what to expect, and often you may feel that no one is on your side. In circumstances like these, it is crucial that you be represented by an experienced, aggressive and determined Atlanta criminal attorney.
In choosing which Atlanta criminal lawyer to trust to handle your situation, you should consider two things: the attorney’s knowledge and experience, and the attorney’s reputation among judges and prosecutors.
Why is an attorney’s reputation with judges and prosecutors important? There are many so-called criminal defense attorneys who make their living taking in as many cases as they can and pleading as many of those cases as fast as they can. These attorneys have not taken a case to trial in a very long time. Prosecutors know who these attorneys are. Which means that if you do not go to court with an attorney who has a reputation for providing the highest possible level of representation, prosecutors have no incentive to take a long hard look at your case and negotiate in good faith with the defense attorney.
When your liberty is at stake, you need an aggressive, experienced and reputable criminal lawyer. Call us for a free consultation today.
