Notes only –
- Hiring a law firm – not a single attorney
- Experience as prosecutors
- Federal and State experience (most only do State) – have knowledge of what might get called up to Federal from State – example, a drug possession for sales case that gets picked up to Federal court, you’d better have an attorney that can represent you
- Manage the stress
- Preparation – we begin the preparation for the case well before your first court appearance. It begins the moment you enter the office.
