When hiring a criminal lawyer, one of the most important considerations is the reputation of the criminal lawyer among prosecutors, judges and fellow attorneys. Choosing a criminal lawyer that is respected by judges and prosecutors can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. It is important that your criminal lawyer is known and respected in the courtroom.
