Finding a Criminal Law Firm

Here in St. Petersburg, there is no shortage of criminal law firms to choose from, so your search may take some time. After an arrest, your first instinct may be to call the first lawyer you can find, but this is not always the smartest decision. Not all firms are the same and some may be better equipped than others to handle your specific case.

Since most criminal law firms offer free consultations, take the time to meet with them in St. Petersburg, and ask a few key questions:

  1. How will you handle my case? They probably will not give you all the details until you officially hire them, but you should still be able to have some information. Skilled lawyers will be able to look at a case and immediately point out its strengths and weaknesses, and know how those can help or hurt you.
  2. Who will be in charge of my case? You may meet with a name partner, only to find out a first year associate will be handling all negotiations and arguments. Instead, ask to meet with the person who will be in charge to ensure you feel comfortable that they are capable.
  3. How long have you been practicing law? You want to find a St. Petersburg criminal law firm that has been in business for many years. This will mean that they know the local court system and have a relationship with the police and state attorneys.

Finding the right firm is very important. You want to make sure that you feel comfortable talking to them about your case and confident they will do everything in their power to help you. If the case goes to trial, they will be responsible for finding evidence to support your innocence, subpoenaing witnesses for your case, cross examining witnesses during the trial, and casting enough burden of doubt for the jury.

It is important to remember that during a St. Petersburg criminal case, since you are innocent until proven guilty, it is the prosecutor that has the burden of guilt. This means that while they will have to convince the jury that you are guilty, your criminal law firm is only responsible for causing the jury to doubt what the prosecutors are saying.
