When choosing a defense attorney one should always make sure that the attorney has the experience, reputation, and the wisdom to understand the strengths and weaknesses of a case in order to negotiate favorable outcomes, dismissals and pleas, that are acceptable to the client.
However, equally if not more important quality to consider in choosing an attorney is trial experience; the best attorney is someone who can confidently select a jury and conduct a trial when the alternative is either not available or acceptable to the client.
Many serious felonies and misdemeanor charges cannot be plea bargained or dismissed, and in those times, a defendant must defend the case by going to trial.
