Former Prosecutors Defending Clients in Wyoming and South Dakota
Criminal charges carry the possibility of prison time, hefty fines, and driver’s license suspensions, as well as collateral consequences like increased insurance rates, difficulty finding a job or apartment, and being denied entrance into many colleges or technical programs.
When faced with the potentially severe consequences of a criminal conviction, you need to choose the best criminal defense attorney to represent you.
If you are considering hiring a criminal defense lawyer, you may be wondering whether you should hire a solo practitioner or a criminal defense team.
While many solo practitioners promise that they will be able to give you more attention than you would receive from a big firm, this isn’t always the case. A criminal defense team will be more responsive to your needs and will give you a better chance of achieving a successful result.
A solo attorney has limited time and resources and may not always be available when you need him. If you call while your lawyer is in court, you will need to wait until your lawyer is back in the office to return your call. And if your lawyer is in the midst of a trial, you might be waiting a week or more until that case concludes before you get a call back.
By working with a criminal defense team, you gain assurance that someone from your lawyer’s office will be able to answer your question as quickly as possible. While you may not be able to speak directly with your lawyer, you will speak with someone on your criminal defense team who is familiar with your case and will be able to answer your questions.
While many solo practitioners promise that they will be more responsive to your needs and tout the benefits of having a single lawyer working on your case, this also means that a solo practitioner may not have the same resources to devote to your case as a criminal defense team.
By working with a team of criminal defense professionals, you’ll know that your lawyer and her staff will have the resources necessary to thoroughly investigate your case and aggressively represent you in court.
At Just Criminal Law, our team of attorneys and paralegals work together to give your case the attention it deserves. We also have a criminal investigator on our staff who worked for the Campbell County Sherriff’s office before joining our office in 2016. Before retiring as a sergeant from the sheriff’s office, Tony Seeman trained with the DEA and FBI, and specialized as a narcotics agent for five years. He understands how law enforcement handles criminal investigations and uses that knowledge to find additional evidence to support our client’s defense.
Because a solo attorney has fewer resources and only a finite amount of time per day, a solo must be more selective about the cases they take on.
In addition, many solo practitioners may take on a broader variety of cases, meaning they do not limit their practice to a particular area of the law.
By working with a team of criminal defense professionals, you know that you will be working with someone who has experience handling the same type of case you are facing and that your lawyer has the knowledge, experience, and expertise to handle the matter the right way.
