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.
