Criminal Defense Lawyer San Diego
A serious criminal charge can literally affect the rest of your life. Your family, your livelihood, and your freedom are all at stake. The most important thing you can do is get a Certified Criminal Law Specialist on your side. Many lawyers handle criminal cases, but only a select group can claim to be Specialists.
The California State Bar has strict ethical rules that prohibit lawyers from claiming to be a Criminal Law Specialist unless the State Bar itself has certified them as a Specialist. To obtain a designation as a Certified Criminal Law Specialist, lawyers must meet a rigorous set of criteria. They must have extensive experience in handling criminal cases. They must demonstrate exceptional knowledge in criminal law; in fact, they must pass a separate bar examination that tests their knowledge of criminal law. And they must receive favorable reviews from judges and other lawyers who are familiar with their work. Only then will the State Bar allow a lawyer to claim to be a Certified Criminal Law Specialist.
When you have a Certified Criminal Law Specialist on your side you can be confident that your case will be handled by a top-notch lawyer. Your case needs to be thoroughly investigated. Physical evidence needs to be evaluated. And if your case needs experts, they must be included on your defense team. A Certified Criminal Law Specialist who is prepared to go to court for you will be able to obtain the best possible result for your case.
