What to Look For In a Criminal Defense Attorney
Facing criminal charges in New Mexico can be a serious matter that should be handled by experienced criminal defense attorneys. Every person deserves to have highly qualified legal representatives support them and protect their rights when they are dealing with a criminal prosecution.
Law school does not prepare lawyers to practice competently in the area of criminal defense, and it is only through experience that criminal defense cases can be handled properly. Plenty of lawyers will agree to take your criminal case, even if they don’t have extensive experience in this area. Many lawyers add criminal defense to a long list of other practice areas they handle. If you have been accused of a crime, you should look for a lawyer who practices primarily in the area of criminal defense. Ideally, criminal law should be the only type of case your lawyer handles.
