3 Reasons to Get the Best White Collar Crime Lawyer You Can

If you’re under investigation for a white collar crime, chances are that you’re wondering what your next steps should be. It’s a piece of advice you’ll find often on our blog, but we feel that it always bears repeating so that people set themselves up for success–you should hire a white collar crime lawyer as early in the process as you can.

For some people, hiring a lawyer seems like an unnecessary step because they know they didn’t commit any crimes and they think they have nothing to fear. For others it’s something they think they should do only in the days leading up to the trial. The truth of the matter is that the earlier you have a lawyer on your side, the better off you’re likely to be.

Is having a lawyer going to automatically get you off the hook? It’s not likely, but we strongly believe that having someone you can consult with before you answer any questions or make any decisions will always be to your benefit. That’s why the team at the Law Offices of Robert J. DeGroot has put together this blog. It’s in your best interest to hire a great lawyer. Keep reading to see a few of the things we think you need to look for.

What Qualities Should a Truly Great White Collar Crime Lawyer Have?

You Need Someone With Experience

To put it simply, your best bet is always to go with someone who has plenty of experience in defending against the type of charges that have been brought against you. Just like with many other areas of expertise, different lawyers have different focuses that they employ at their practice. Think of it this way–you wouldn’t go to a brain surgeon to have your knee examined. Similarly, you need to find a lawyer who specializes in the area of crime you’re being charged with. It’s the best way to set yourself up for success.

You Need Someone With Knowledge

Alongside of experience is knowledge in how to approach a situation and what steps need to be taken along the way. This is why we always recommend taking a bit of time to speak with a couple of different lawyers before making a decision about who to work with if you can. We know that you might be feeling crunched for time, so doing a bit of research on the internet can also be in your best interest.

For the record, as of the time of this writing, attorney Robert J. DeGroot has a 5-star rating on both Google, Lawyers.com, and Facebook and a 94% rating on Avvo.

You Need Someone With a Track Record of Success

It’s also important to find someone to work with who knows how to get the job done right. After all, what good is it to partner with a law firm who can’t seem to win a case? If you take the time to read the reviews mentioned above, you’ll see that time and time again, our team has fought for the legal rights of those we are representing and secured a positive outcome even though the situation was difficult. Finding an attorney who does the same means that you’re setting yourself up for success as much as you can. Are you guaranteed to win your case? Unfortunately not, but having the odds on your side makes things much better.
