Fort Worth Criminal Defense Lawyer

Finding the Best Criminal Defense Attorney

Varghese Summersett PLLC

First, it is important to understand that there is no such thing as the universally best criminal defense attorney. Although we have received many awards that name us the “Top” or “Best” attorney in a particular area, and we have more 5-Star reviews on Google than any criminal defense attorney we know, the reality is finding the right criminal defense attorney for your case is a very personal decision. While there may not be a universally-best criminal defense attorney, there is one who is the best attorney for your particular case. Here are some questions you can ask to help you find the best criminal defense attorney for your case:

  • Are you Board Certified in Criminal Law?
  • How many cases have you taken to trial by jury?
  • Have you handled cases like mine?
  • Will you be my attorney, or will someone else be handling my case?
  • Have you worked as a prosecutor?
  • Do you know the judge and prosecutor in my case?

As the attorney is talking to you, you should be evaluating not only their answers but how they respond. Do the answers give you confidence? Is this person someone the judge, jury, and prosecution would listen to? Does the attorney seemed rushed?

We believe that people come to us with the greatest problems in their lives, and we strive to treat them with the respect, patience, and diligence that such cases deserve. If you or a loved one are facing criminal charges, we encourage you to call us for a free consultation.
