Do Some Check Ups Prior to Hiring A Lawyer

If you ever need to hire a criminal defense lawyer in Texas for a matter that involves defending you in the face of criminal prosecution, we recommend doing a few check-ups prior to paying that hefty retainer fee. One thing you may want to check is their online disciplinary records for any blemishes. A good place to start would be to look up their name in the state bar. Most state bar associations keep track of this information so it shouldn’t be to hard to find if it exists. The last thing one needs in their lawyer is a lack of professionalism. Another good thing to look for is online reviews of the attorney, or a lack thereof. This will be a good opportunity to see what others have to say about them, or to see if they have had enough clients to even generate any online reviews. Always do your homework before paying for legal representation.
