Choosing The Right Lawyer For You
The first question you should ask an attorney you are thinking of hiring for your pending criminal charges is “How many trials have you had in front of a judge or jury?” Their answer should not include preliminary hearings. Our Erie, PA criminal defense attorneys have handled well over 100 jury and nonjury trials over the course of their legal careers.
Without an attorney who regularly handles criminal cases and who keeps up with often-complex changes in the law, you might be making matters worse for yourself. Again, has your attorney actually been in criminal jury trials fighting for their client? Isn’t that something you should expect?
