Attention to detail is a trait every attorney must possess when representing someone charged with a crime. When a person is charged with a DUI, battery, felony, misdemeanor and even a violation of probation one slip by the attorney can land the client in jail. From the initial intake interview to subsequent meetings, pretrial hearings and most certainly trial the attorney should always be calculating the facts as it relates to the law. The experienced attorney takes his time, makes notes, asks questions, takes depositions, does an investigation and tries to find the leaks in any case. Having processes in place helps me go through the facts I hear and relate them to the laws that I know. In fact, I have checklists which guide me in a DUI, battery, felony, misdemeanor and violation of probation cases. Without a checklist an attorney would be going blindly into court. Having a checklist is just like being a pilot before he/she takes off. Just as you would not want to fly with a pilot who does not go through his/her checklist why would anyone want an attorney to represent them and risk their freedom by winging it? If you or someone you know is charged with a crime be sure to tell them to contact me because Jail Stinks!!!!
