How to Find the Best Criminal Defense Attorney

Chances are you are facing serious charges right now, possibly along with some prison time. Don’t leave your future up to chance and hire just anyone to represent you. Scott Flint is a criminal defense attorney that has been practicing in the Clearwater area for over 15 years. He has the skills and knowledge to fully represent you and to ensure that you receive a fair trial.

Before you hire a lawyer, you should sit down and get to know them, in order to make sure you feel comfortable with them representing you. Some factors to consider include:

  1. Personality. Besides their legal qualifications, you should know if you feel at ease with this person. Do they seem like someone you can talk to openly, and do they take the time to explain everything to you? The attorney-client relationship should be one that is open and honest; it should feel like a partnership.
  2. Local. Hiring a criminal defense attorney that is based in Clearwater will help you in more ways than one. They will have experience practicing in local courts, and they will know the local police officers and prosecutors.
  3. Experience. You don’t want to hire a lawyer that doesn’t have experience handling the crime you are accused of. Make sure to ask them if they have represented others charged with the same crime and what is their success rate.

What Will We Do For You?

Many people are not aware of the work their criminal defense attorney does on their behalf outside of the Clearwater courtroom. Long before your trial begins, Flint Law Firm will begin gathering evidence to support your claim of innocence, interviewing witnesses, and creating a defense strategy. We will never sugar coat the truth about your situation; regardless of if we think a plea deal or trial is the best avenue for you, you will always know exactly what is going on with your case. This is because so much of your future depends on the outcome of this case- you need to be informed.

Being convicted of a criminal charge can greatly affect your life. When you are searching for a Clearwater criminal defense attorney, this is not the time to hire the first person you find. It is imperative that you look around, and find a lawyer that you feel comfortable with, and that will represent you well. Many people believe that they can save some money and represent themselves. Unfortunately, this rarely turns out well for them. Even though the United States claims someone is innocent until proven guilty, when you are facing off against a prosecutor with 20 years of experience, it will be difficult to argue your case. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney will ensure that your basic, inherent, constitutional rights are upheld and always respected.
