1. Select a criminal defense attorney who practices exclusively criminal defense with many years of experience. (Our primary attorney in the Fresno court, Attorney Art Hampar, has been practicing criminal law since 1983).
2. Pick a lawyer who is passionate and energetic about fighting for his clients (Burned out attorneys are less effective).
3. Select a Fresno criminal defense attorney who is in the Fresno court regularly, if not daily (No one is in Fresno more than we are. We are literally there every day the courthouse is open).
4. Find an defense lawyer who is affordable. A great attorney does not gouge his clients.
5. Chose an attorney who is comfortable resolving cases at trial or through negotiated settlement, whichever is most advantageous under the circumstances.
6. Pick an attorney who has professional support including other criminal defense attorneys, Licensed Private Investigators, and legal support staff. It can be a great advantage to have an entire firm representing you compared to one single attorney without support.
7. Select an attorney who makes you feel comfortable. Trust your gut. Consult with an attorney prior to hiring them to see if it feels like a good fit.
