Wondering what type of attorney you should hire to represent you in your criminal case?

A former prosecutor has many advantages against their competitors.

When choosing a legal representative for your criminal charges, you may be wondering what credentials you should be looking for. Obviously, you should obtain counsel from an attorney who has a track record in defending criminal cases, yet consider the benefits of also having an attorney with prosecution experience. 

A former prosecutor will have tried cases on both sides of the courtroom, giving the lawyer further understanding of the trial process. He or she will be familiar with how the prosecution gathers related evidence, decides the charges to file, and builds their case to go trial. This allows the attorney to know where the prosecution may be weak, which will in turn strengthen your case.

A former prosecutor will also negotiate better plea bargains, as he or she knows just how far the D.A. may be pushed. Usually, the first plea bargain should not be accepted because better terms can be agreed upon. A former prosecutor can use their knowledge of the other side to more efficiently and successfully negotiate on your behalf.

A former prosecutor will also have had experience balancing a heavy caseload. Criminal defense attorneys only have as many cases as clients that come to them for defense. Prosecutors, on the other hand, generally have a larger case load as there is a constant stream of cases from the state. Because of this, they have to learn how to effectively handle their cases, being unable to devote as much time to any one case as a private attorney. 

Attorney Jeff Hufft works hard for his clients with the goal of attaining the best possible case result, based upon the details of the case. He can consult with you regarding your unique situation and advise you of your available defense options. The attorney you choose to represent you following an arrest, at arraignment, and to act as your counsel at any hearings and other court proceedings, can make a real difference in the outcome of your case.
