What Makes a Good Criminal Defense Lawyer

September 5, 2021

Friends –
As I have been doing this for a while, I think I know what makes a good criminal defense lawyer. What makes a good criminal defense lawyer?

  1. Honesty – they are honest in their dealings with people. Their word is good. Judges, prosecutors and clients know that their word is good.
  2. Dedicated to Liberty- they are driven by a deep-seated love of liberty. They cannot stand the thought of someone having their liberty stolen. They have an instinct to defend liberty and  to fight any that would take it. They are true believers.
  3. Hard-Working – They are driven and work hard for their clients. It does not matter how many hours it takes. It does not matter how long it takes. They are committed to work as hard as it takes to get the best possible outcome.
  4. Brave- They have the courage necessary to stand alone and fight for another person’s liberty. They are not afraid of bully judges,  tough prosecutors or the angry public. They will March side by side with their client and stand up for their client when no one else will. Their instinct are to fight and never to back down.
