Usually the only time you see someone with a team of criminal defense attorneys’ are celebrities charged with a very serious crime. O. J. Simpson’s team of high-power defense attorney’s always comes to mind. However, you don’t have to be a celebrity, or even wealthy to afford a team of defense attorney’s. If you have been charged with a serious crime that carries severe penalties and especially if you’re charged with a crime you did not commit. A team of criminal defense attorney’s will ensure that you will have more than one legal mind fighting for your defense.
The second you are charged or know that you are going to be charged with a serious crime, life as you know will be different. Unless you’re a career criminal, you will have no idea what’s going on. A team of criminal defense attorneys will enable you to have at least one attorney at your side during the arraignment, that way someone will always be with you to answer any question you may have and explain what is going on. They also realize that you may need them any time of the day or night, so one attorney at least will be available to you at all times. Hiring only one defense attorney probably means you are not his only client (if he or she is any good anyway), and you may feel at times that not everything is being done that should be done to get you cleared from this case.
In many instances, local politics and conflicts of interest prevent local counsel from providing you with the most aggressive criminal defense possible. It may be to your benefit to hire your criminal defense team outside of your county if possible. This way there will be no personal interest in the local courtroom, giving a better chance of getting a fair trial. Be sure to ask all kinds of questions when hiring more than one attorney, for example: How long has this law firm been in practice and how many cases have they won and lost. Also be sure to ask if this law firm has handled cases like yours before and if so what was the outcome? Your future will be in their hands, make sure you hire the right criminal defense attorneys’ to take care of you.
