Don’t Let One Mistake Ruin the Rest of Your Life

If you have been accused of a crime in the Central or North Central Missouri area, your mind is probably racing and filled with a million different questions:

  • Am I going to lose my job?
  • Who is going to take care of my family if I go to jail?
  • Will this be on my record forever?
  • Am I going to get kicked out of school?
  • Is this going to ruin my chances for  a career?

One top of all these emotions, you are worried about getting a lawyer. You have questions like:

  • How important is it to hire a good lawyer?
  • How do find the right lawyer?
  • Am I going to be able to afford a lawyer?
  • What happens if I hire the wrong lawyer?

These are all important questions. Too many people rush into the decision to hire an attorney. They do so without knowing how to select an attorney, and often make their decision on price. The end result is that they often make the wrong decision. Unfortunately, they usually don’t realize the mistake they’ve made until it’s too late.

The decision on who you hire may determine the ultimate outcome of your case. It’s not something you should rush into. Instead, you need to take your time, and make an informed decision. The question is how you do that, since most people have no experience in hiring a lawyer. If they have used a lawyer before it probably was on something completely unrelated to criminal law.
