When facing criminal prosecution, i.e. alleged violation of a criminal law, the most important decision you will make is choosing an attorney. A conviction of any crime, whether a felony or a misdemeanor, has lasting effects reaching far beyond prison/jail time and fines. Other areas of life impacted by criminal convictions include, but are not limited to: employment (present and future); termination from the military; restitution; increased insurance rates; probation; loss of driver's license or commercial driver's license; civil lawsuit implications; gun rights; voting rights; ability to obtain loans or financing; ability to qualify or termination of student loans; custody of children; civil forfeiture of vehicle or other asstes; and etc. For all these reasons, choosing a criminal defense attorney cognizant of all these issues is crucial to your future.
In evaluating the right criminal defense advocate, considerations should include:
- Whether the attorney has successfully tried criminal cases to a jury;
- The types of cases the attorney has tried;
- Does the attorney regularly handle criminal cases; and
- Is your attorney reputable with prosecutors and judges?

If you find yourself in a situation involving law enforcement investigation, detention, and/or otherwise invovled in a criminal law setting, take the following steps:
- Ask if you are free to leave. If you are free to leave - leave immediately.
- If you are not free to leave, ask to speak to an Attorney. If you are the subject of investigation or interrogation, discussing the matter with the police can only hurt you. This is true even if you are innocent. You have the right to remain silent, exercise it. Too often individuals create a case for the prosecutor simply by talking too much.
- If law enforcement asks you to consent, refuse it. Consent is a valid legal exception to Constitutional protections. If you consent, you can later lose your ability to ask a Judge to suppress evidence as being obtained in violation of your Constitutional rights.
