Award Winning DWI/DUI and Criminal Defense Attorneys

Questions to Ask Any Attorney!

By Cathy Norwood - January 7, 2014

ALL ATTORNEYS ARE NOT EQUAL. If you go see another attorney, we strongly suggest that you ask any other attorney the questions below. No two attorneys are alike and we believe that you should know the answers to these questions before you make a decision on whom to hire. For example, one reason why this could be important, is there are many attorneys that may say they handle criminal charges. However, OTHER ATTORNEYS MAY HAVE NEVER TAKEN ANY CRIMINAL CASE TO TRIAL, or only handled a few criminal charges. Our firm has defended well-over 25,000 criminal cases, including over 8,000 DWI cases. Norwood & Norwood’s experience, and the fact that our defense team has taken hundreds if not thousands of cases to trial, helps us to negotiate really great outcomes for our clients. The prosecutors know we will make the state spend their time and money on a trial if we do not get a negotiated outcome that is favorable for our client. It is important to know that the attorney you hire has the skill, knowledge and experience to put up the best fight to protect you from the consequences of your charges. As you can see, our answer to every question is YES.
