What You Need to Do to Prepare to Meet with a Seattle Criminal Lawyer

By Michael Schwartz on May 29, 2020

Unfortunately, far too many Americans find themselves in the position where they need to hire a criminal lawyer. If you are one of those people, there are certain things you can do to prepare to meet with your lawyer. This includes:  Present any legal documents that may pertain to the case; Come with a clear understanding of the incident you are involved in, including your version of events, length of time of the dispute in question and the date of the central conflict.  Make sure you are clear on the attorney’s fees and of your own ability to afford the attorney you are hiring.

It is important that you hire an experienced Seattle criminal lawyer, rather than try to handle a situation on your own. The legal system is exceptionally complicated and often comes with pitfalls, deadlines, and jargon with which you are likely unfamiliar. As a result, you need to hire someone who has expertise and experience and is in a position to serve your needs.

Remember, a mistake in a criminal case can result in a serious loss of time, money and freedom. Don’t take a chance with an inexperienced lawyer or by handling these matters yourself.
