FAQ #16: Do I Need a Lawyer for a Domestic Violence Case?

One of the questions I think that we hear frequently is, "Why would I need a lawyer or how do I know which lawyer to choose?" And I always tell any potential client the same thing. One of the most important things to consider, always, is that you have to trust that person, essentially, with your life. Unfortunately, when you see a lawyer, it's usually during a bad time in your life. It's not because something great is happening. Fortunately, for us, we get to deal with really great people who, in a split second, had something bad happen and now there are negative consequences. We are former prosecutors, and we are defense attorneys who have had the actual trial and jury experience. We can tell early on how a case is going to play out in front of a jury. We actually know how to go from beginning to end, and we know how to win at the end. We know what's going to matter.

I think that also comes out in our negotiations with prosecutors, is they can tell we have that experience. We can tell them we know that these are the holes in your case. We know that you're going to have these problems.
