Being accused of a crime is a serious matter. Your personal liberty is at stake. Having an attorney representing you that understands the judicial process, the evaluation of the evidence, and the pros and cons of going to trial is a necessity. When hiring a lawyer, look at experience and integrity. Not all questions that arise can be answered immediately, but all questions can be answered honestly.
