Why Hire a Local Attorney?
Most people searching for a criminal lawyer are not aware of the significant advantage that is available to them when they hire an attorney that is local to their area. To be clear, most criminal attorneys take cases in almost all courts and counties throughout the state regardless of whether they have any experience practicing in those counties.
Getting the best result for your case is likely to come from an attorney that spends significantly more time within the courts they visit the most. Attorney Armando Hernandez is known as an aggressive, zealous advocate for his clients in all criminal cases, which can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case.
Hiring a local attorney is beneficial to you because they are familiar with the courts and the prosecutors who will likely be working on your case. If you have a defense attorney working your case who knows exactly what to expect from the prosecuting attorney, your case could greatly benefit and have the best end result. For the average person, the law is very intimidating to face alone. It is very complex and often riddled with loopholes. Mr. Hernandez is intimately involved with the law, and he can help guide you through the entire process step by step. If you are faced with a high stakes situation, there is no room to give yourself anything but the best legal representation. There is no need for you to try and fight your way through this on your own. You need a formidable ally to have in your corner to look after you and your future.
Exclusive Focus on Criminal Defense
Choosing a Miami criminal defense attorney can be a difficult process, especially in light of a recent arrest. Trusting your livelihood and future to a firm is one of the most important decisions you will make in the coming days which is why it is imperative that you hire a defense lawyer that solely practices in the field of criminal defense. Entrusting your case to a firm that may only partially practice the law is not acceptable and may make the difference between winning and perhaps receiving a negative outcome. It is important to ensure that your attorney has extensive experience within the local counties and courts and that their practice is focused exclusively on criminal defense. Mr. Hernandez is a former prosecutor and has previously been on the other side of the table countless times. His experience in understanding the prosecution’s side of your case gives you a significant advantage during the proceedings of your case.
Selecting an attorney who practices solely and exclusively criminal law can give your case a tremendous advantage. Attorney Armando Hernandez handles only criminal defense cases and will not have to divide time up between different types of law. Mr. Hernandez will give you the full and complete attention you deserve.
