What to look for in a Monroe Washington criminal defense attorney
Criminal cases can be scary and have life altering circumstances. For this reason you want to make sure you hire an experienced Monroe attorney that specializes in the area you are being charged with. You most likely do not want to use the lawyer who handled your will, divorce or car accident to be your lawyer in a criminal defense case. Attorneys for the these types of legal issues are referred to as civil lawyers. Criminal attorneys tend to practice as individuals or in very small partnerships, unlike civil attorneys that tend to work in large firms. When looking for a criminal defense lawyer in Monroe don't be worried about the size of the firm.
