What Can I Expect During my Criminal Defense Consultation?

Congratulations! By scheduling a free consultation with an experienced crimnal defense attorney at the AZ Criminal Defense Group, you are taking a huge step towards resolving your legal issues. It is not surprising that you may be feeling some trepidation about this meeting. It is our hope that, by providing you with information about our consultations, we can help alleviate a portion of this stress. 

Step 1: Gather Your Documents

You should have received some sort of paperwork on your criminal case, either from the police or the court. Any documentation that you possess that relates to your case should be gathered so that you will be able to bring it with you to your initial consultation with a Sierra Vista criminal defense attorney. These may include a receipt for bail, a ticket, or a notice to appear in court. Any paperwork with a court date appearing on it is especially important for you to bring to your initial consultation. While your lawyer will be able to request documentation from the court once he or she has filed an appearance for you, the legal process will run much more smoothly if you bring everything you have to that first meeting with your attorney.

Step 2: Prepare Your Version of Events

It is a good idea to write down everything that you remember about the incident in question and the accusations being made against you. Putting everything in writing in the order that it occurred will help you to remember details that might otherwise have been forgotten. Write down as much information as you can about dates, times, places and what actually happened. Also document what the police have done, if anything, so far regarding your case. Any interactions with law enforcement in regards to your criminal case will be important to tell your Cochise County criminal defense attorney. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for your lawyer to provide you with the best possible criminal defense.

Step 3: Make A List of Witnesses

While you are documenting your side of the story, you should also make a list of any witnesses whom you think could help in your defense. If you have witnesses who are alibis, write down their names and contact information. If you know people whom you think would make good character witnesses should that become necessary, note their information as well. All of this information can be quite helpful to your Sierra Vista criminal defense attorney in preparing and defending your criminal case.

Step 4: Make a List of Your Question for the Attorney

Finally, you will want to write down any and all questions you have for your Sierra Vista criminal defense attorney. Your questions can be about the legal system in general and/or about your criminal case in particular. If you have all of your queries written down, you will be sure not to forget to ask anything important when you meet for your initial consultation with your attorney. Questions that you might want to pose to your lawyer include (but are not limited to):

  • What should I expect to happen during my criminal court case?
  • How will my sentence be decided – by a jury or a judge?
  • If convicted, can that conviction be expunged?
  • If convicted, what rights should I expect to lose, if any?
  • What are the possible sentences for my crime?
  • If I am given probation, what should I expect?

You might also have questions about the criminal attorney him- or herself, such as:

  • How long have you been practicing criminal law?
  • How often do your cases go to trial?
  • Will you be the only lawyer working on my criminal case?
  • Why should I choose you?
  • How much are your fees and how will my payments be handled?

Rest assured, when you choose representation from one of the experienced criminal defense lawyers at AZ Criminal Defense Group, your case will be in good hands.
