I have been recognized for my work and commitment to excellent client representation and have been included in the 2014 selection of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers. If you have been accused of a crime, arrested, or are under investigation, or if you’ve never been in trouble with the law before what do you do? It might be embarrassing to ask friends for a recommendation but how else do you find someone you can trust?
The Internet has become a great tool for finding and evaluating professionals. A recommendation from someone you trust is probably the best and easiest way to go but if that isn’t possible, or if several people are recommended, then a Google check might be your next step.
Not all lawyers are created equal so it is crucial you investigate thoroughly. Look for recommendations by legal groups who know what to look for in an attorney. One source is the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers.
As for me, it is an honor every time a client trusts me with his or her case. I know their freedom and reputation are at stake. Being recognized by my peers is probably the highest honor I could imagine. This selection is something I’m very proud of.
