Why should I hire an attorney who only does criminal defense cases?

Sometimes when people are accused of a crime, they begin to search for a "lawyer" or "attorney" in their geographic area without understanding that they should be searching for a certain type of legal representation. In the legal world, the type of attorney who handles criminal cases for a defendant is a "criminal defense lawyer", while the attorney who is representing the jurisdiction where the crime was allegedly committed is called a "prosecuting attorney".

Other than prosecutors, there are other lawyers who are civil attorneys, which means that they handle transactional law claims or class action suits. Here at Baker, Lewis, Schwisow & Laws, PLLC, we practice criminal defense law exclusively in order to provide our clients with the highest quality of representation. After a criminal arrest, you should look for a law firm devoted 100% to criminal defense law instead of settling for a lawyer who practices other specialties as well.

As Seattle criminal defense lawyers, we spend most of our career in courtrooms throughout the state. This has given us an extensive understanding of how court operates and the defense strategies that are effective for various charges. Over the years, we have stayed abreast of local, state and federal changes to criminal laws and we can provide you with up-to-date information about your rights. Call our firm today to learn more about how you will benefit from the legal protection and support that we offer you.
