Things to consider when choosing an attorney:
When consulting and choosing an attorney, one should be wary of those who promise results, or those who begin by telling you that they've "been in practice for 30 years." That fact that an attorney has been practicing for 30 years is virtually meaningless. That individual may have been practicing badly for all that time, he could have spent that time doing nothing but arranging shady back room deals, all the while convincing his clients to accept poor plea arrangements. Don?t be dazzled by fancy buzzwords, catch phrases, and "philosophies.? What one should be looking for is an attorney who has a demonstrated track record of obtaining the best possible dispositions for his clients. Mr. Bazile invites you to view his "Results" page, because results speak louder than words.
You should also be wary of those attorneys who charge you outrageously exorbitant fees, claiming their outrageously high fees will new you better service of better results. You may encounter an attorney or firm that wants to charge you three times, or more, what other firms typically charge, while telling you that they "care" more about your case, or that it's "people that matter." Expensive doesn't mean better, it just means more expensive. No criminal defendant should be forced to exhaust all their assets in order to secure effective representation. Me. Bazile endeavors to establish fees at a level that are reasonable and affordable, while archiving better results than the overpriced attorneys who decimate your assets, while spending more time on the golf course than in a courtroom in defense of your case.
