A criminal charge is a very serious offense and can have a tremendous impact on you.  It can also impact your family so this is a situation which should not be taken lightly.

If you are involved in a criminal charge, then law enforcement personnel are often involved.  You may or may not have had prior experience with them.  And while their duty is to protect the public from many types of crimes, they may not have your best interests in mind.

It is therefore important to seek the services of a Dayton criminal defense attorney to help provide you with good advice and the best possible defense.  You want to protect your rights and hopefully work out the best possible solutions to a difficult solution.

For criminal charges, you should always work with someone who has expertise in criminal law and proceedings involved.  This is not a situation best handled by a generalist.

To find a good criminal defense attorney, check with you local bar association.  They normally have a lawyer referral unit and can provide you with viable candidates which are best suited for your particular problem.

The referrals you receive for this department are normally very helpful and unbiased.  Try to give the personnel involved in that department as much details as possible so they can recommend the attorney best suited for your requirements.

You can also find out much more information about the attorneys they recommend.  This can include specific types of cases they may represent, their education, certifications, etc.  It is then a good idea to get more details about the attorneys you are considering by checking out their websites.

In may cases they have a lot of helpful information on their experience and areas of specialization.  If you are able, it is very advisable to meet with the attorney you are considering.

Many of these attorneys will meet with you initially for a no charge consultation.  They will review the specifics of your case and provide recommendations and further information.  Based on this meeting, you can be better prepared to make necessary decisions and understand the next steps.

If you are currently imprisoned, the attorney can arrange to meet with you there.  The attorney can be instrumental is arranging for bail (if possible) so you can remain out of prison in preparation for any required hearings.
