When you or a family member need a lawyer, there isn't often time to evaluate who you are going to hire. Most people do not have a criminal defense lawyer in mind until the need arises. We are often asked by prospective clients, "How do I Pick Which Criminal Defense Attorney to Hire?" The answer is simple - hire an attorney who makes you feel comfortable and, most importantly, who is available when you need them. That may sound obvious, but many great local attorneys fail to communicate properly with their clients. This is a stressful time in your life. Stress weighs on you at odd times of the day and night. The last thing you need is a lawyer who doesn't return calls, never answers the phone or just a number to a closed office. Sometimes a quick phone call to your lawyer can ease your mind. When you hire a criminal defense attorney at the Goldfarb Law Group, you get that lawyer's cell phone number and the peace of mind to know you have someone to contact with questions anytime. With more than 20 years of trial experience, we understand the stress criminal charges can create and we make ourselves available to talk whenever needed.
Next, you need a lawyer who is available to meet with you - a free consultation so you can decide if they are a good fit. If a criminal defense lawyer can't take the time to meet with you right away in the beginning, what does that say about their availability later in your case? We are available anytime, even on weekends, to meet with you and your family so that you have some time to ask questions and get to know us. Want to meet?

Finally, a great way to know you are hiring the best criminal defense lawyer you can is to see what their prior clients said. Look online for reviews. See if the reviews are from former clients who used the attorney and what they say about him or her. Talk to family and friends to see if they know of a criminal defense lawyer in the area. A lot of lawyers can make a good first impression, but if former clients went to the trouble of posting a review praising their criminal defense lawyer, you can be sure that attorney worked hard for their client.
