Your case may be a criminal case in which you face incarceration; a civil case in which you face the possible loss of property or money or a domestic/divorce case where custody, child support and your relationship with your children is at stake. Regardless of the type case you have, you will want competent legal representation. Your choice of attorney may be the most crucial decision you make at the initial stage of your case. You should select an attorney in whom you have confidence, is knowledgeable of the legal issues in your case, conscious of the personal, hurdles you must overcome, and is able to communicate effectively with you and the opposing attorney.
