Choosing A Tucson Criminal Defense Attorney

With virtually unlimited resources, the government can be a formidable adversary. When you’re searching for a Tucson criminal defense attorney, it’s critical that you do some research. Look at a lawyer’s history, breadth of experience in criminal law, case results, and testimonials. Does the lawyer fully understand the criminal justice system, understand your adversary (the prosecutor’s office), and have a track record of success? It’s also important to talk to different lawyers to determine whether you are comfortable communicating with them and whether you feel that they are sincerely interested in helping you. The wrong decision could alter the trajectory of your entire life.

All Tucson criminal defense attorneys are different. Personalities and experience levels can vary significantly, and so can case loads.
