How do I find the Best San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Finding the best attorney only takes a simple phone call. Write all your questions down ahead of time that you want to ask. Your particular case or charge may determine which lawyer is better between different choices.

What Questions do I ask a San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Some questions that you should ask a San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer are below:

  • Do you handle cases like mine?
  • How long have you been a lawyer?
  • What success have you had with my type of case?
  • Is there a discount if I pay the legal fee upfront?
  • How much is the legal fee for a payment plan?
  • What is the best case scenario for my charge?
  • What is the worst case scenario for my charge?
  • What are the chances to get my case dismissed?
  • Can you keep the charge off my record?
  • Can you do an expungement after the case is over?

What is the Goal of a Criminal Defense Attorney?

Believe it or not each lawyer has a different goal. Some attorneys just go with the flow. Sometimes those are court appointed or sometimes hire lawyers. They go into the case with the idea that it will be a plea for the first offer. You DO NOT want that lawyer.

The mindset of a lawyer going into a case is very important. It sets the stage for how the lawyer will prepare a defense and file court documents. Eventually the case may be set for trial and the attorney needs to have a solid plan and confidence that he or she can convince a jury that the client is NOT GUILTY.

Going into a case with a winning mindset allows the lawyer to explore all legal options to properly defend his or her client’s case to their best ability.
