How do I Choose my Criminal or DUI Defense Attorney?

In Virginia attorneys are not permitted to hold themselves out as specialists. There are some exceptions to this rule but they do not apply to traffic or criminal law. When selecting an attorney you want to look for someone who has a heavy concentration in the area of practice that your case involves. For example, you may not want to go to a divorce lawyer for a DUI or a tax attorney for a weapons charge. At Boone Beale our attorneys are all experienced traffic defense, DUI defense, and criminal defense attorneys and some have experience as prosecutors, police officers and expertise in other fields that relate to traffic and criminal defense.

You want to find an attorney that you can communicate well with. Your attorney should return calls and be willing to meet with you as needed to pursue your case. If your attorney will not explain things or return your calls you may want to think about whether this is the right attorney for your needs.

Last, you must trust your criminal defense attorney and listen to his or her advice. If you do not trust your defense attorney or you are not willing to listen to advice you do so at your own peril. This is not to say that you do not have the right to question advice or make a decision that your attorney does not agree with but remember that your attorney is looking out for your best interests and tries to ensure the best outcome possible for you. At Boone Beale we try to tailor our representation to your needs and use our collective experience and training to best serve your needs.
