As a Retired POLICE OFFICER, and 29 year attorney, I have been on BOTH SIDES. My law enforcement background and experience provides me with knowledge and training other attorneys simply cannot learn from simply reading a book.
"I have arrested people, written crime reports, written arrest reports, testified in court, and worked with the district attorney to prosecute people. I am now on the other side"
"I am also one of the few attorneys hired by law enforcement officers and other attorneys when they, or a member of their family, has been arrested or charged with a crime"
ASK ANOTHER ATTORNEY:
"Do you have law enforcement experience"
"Did you graduate from a police academy"
"Have you been on the OTHER SIDE"
"Have you ever written an arrest report"
"Have you ever written a crime report"
"Have you ever investigated a crime as a law enforcement officer"
"Have you ever been thru specialized law enforcement training schools and courses"
"Have you ever testified in court as a law enforcement officer"
"Have you ever been on a crime scene working with CSI"
See what EXCUSE they give you for NOT having this specialized training, knowledge and experience, then decide who YOU WANT IN YOUR CORNER !
REMEMBER EXPERIENCE COUNTS! When you are considering hiring an attorney, ASK how LONG he/she has been practicing law.
DO YOU WANT A "NEWBIE" TO HANDLE YOUR CASE?
