You deserve an Elite Criminal Defense Attorney

How do you feel right now? You’ve either been arrested or cited, accused of committing a crime; the accusers have had their say about you and you weren’t given a chance to respond; you’ve been called a criminal; you’ve been embarrassed in the tabloids and on social media; the haters are cheering; your friends didn’t support you like they should have; you’re trying to navigate all of these unfamiliar rules and procedures to understand how much trouble you may be in; you don’t know if you’ll still have a job tomorrow or if your record is completely ruined … and now you need to hire a lawyer, and you have no idea where to begin!

Before you read another line, stop right here, straighten your posture, lift your shoulders and breathe! Close your eyes and inhale / exhale five times slowly. Now that you’ve cleared your mind of all of those distractions and worries, ask yourself these questions:

  • What qualities matter most to me in selecting an attorney?
  • What kind of personality would I want my attorney to have?
  • How would I want my attorney to make me feel about myself and this situation?
  • What actions could he take that would signify a ‘successful’ experience?

Create an image in your mind of the kind of attorney that you would want to guide and counsel you, and let the answers to these questions guide your attorney search. Attorneys vary in price, experience, competency, knowledge, and personality. What are you looking for?

I enjoy reading the testimonials of former clients because they give me valuable feedback into the customer service experience I hope to deliver. It pleases me to see comments like, “I felt comfortable with you,” “You helped me get through this,” or “I felt better because you explained everything.” These are the comments of actual clients who were right in the situation that you are in now, and they consistently say that, even though the experience was pretty terrible, having me there with a steady hand on the wheel helped them make it through the storm.

Elite Criminal Defense Attorney J. Jeffrey LeeFriends, that kind of peace of mind is what you deserve. You don’t want to stand around waiting for your attorney to show up, you don’t want to wonder if he is going to be prepared today, you don’t want him to forget all of the things you asked him to say in your defense, and you don’t want to be scolded or judged by the same person you hired to be on your side.

Trust your gut. Ask yourself why no one else is providing all of these free informational guides, books, videos, and other resources. Ask whether they have any jury trial experience or are a Certified Criminal Trial Specialist. Ask why they don’t respect the huge responsibility that you’ve placed in their hands, and have the client satisfaction awards to prove it. Ask why their rates are so ridiculously low that you know they couldn’t do a quality job at that price, unless they are a volume attorney. Is this all a bunch of new age hooey? A marketing ploy? Sure, if you ask my attorney competitors, but I dare you to ask my former clients instead!
