Four Reasons For Hiring a Local Criminal Defense Lawyer
A local criminal lawyer will be more familiar with the local courts and personnel. A local Columbia lawyer will know the judges, their staff and sometimes even the police officers involved in your case. This allows your legal strategy to benefit from knowing how the judge has historically reacted to various legal techniques and presentations.
We've all seen television, where the defendant is offered a "deal" by the district attorney. Having your lawyer know the prosecution gives you more of a chance of receiving a better "deal" offer, if the situation calls for that. There's a better chance that a local lawyer will have had prior dealings with the district attorney's staff.
Having local access to your lawyer makes it very convenience to have conversations and meetings to help build your case strategy. We all know that most communication is non-verbal, so having a convenient face-to-face conversation with your lawyer can greatly help to understand your legal situation and to provide support for your case.
