How to Pick an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney in Orange County
Everyone knows that the best thing you can do for yourself if you've been arrested or charged with a crime is to hire a criminal defense attorney. Unfortunately, most people don't really know how to go about finding a defense attorney that can succeed in having the charges against them reduced or dismissed.
For most people in Orange County, the only contact they have with criminal defense lawyers is when they serve Jury Duty at Superior Court in Santa Ana, Fullerton, Newport Beach, or Westminster. However, once you actually have need of an attorney, time is of the essence. The more time you spend trying to make up your mind, the more time the prosecution has to build a case against you.
Remember that there are dire consequences for a criminal conviction. Beyond the penalties and fines, there is a strong social stigma attached to being convicted or even accused of a crime. Particularly here in Orange County. That's why you need to have a strong litigator with a proven record of success on your side when you go to court.
My practice, Law Office of Michael L. Guisti, has received a 10.0 or “Superb” ratting from Avvo and was also named their “Client's Choice” for Criminal Defense in 2014. We've also been named as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers and are listed in the Nation's Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel.
