Should I hire a lawyer from the same place as where the court appearance is?

>>>Should I hire a lawyer from the same place as where the court appearance is?

There are advantages and disadvantages to hiring a lawyer from the same place where you were charged with an offence. If you have been charged in a rural area, it is unlikely that a local lawyer will have the same degree of specialization in a particular area of criminal law as a lawyer from a bigger city who practices criminal law exclusively.

Lawyers who specialize exclusively in criminal law may be able to advance novel or technical defences that a more generalized lawyer would not be familiar with. The greater the complexity and uniqueness of the charge you face, the further you may need to go to find a lawyer with experience in that particular area. A local lawyer in a rural area will, however, have a greater familiarity with the day-to-day idiosyncrasies of that jurisdiction, and will also have a greater familiarity with the Crown Prosecutors and Court clerks working in the area.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

My career depended upon the successful resolution of my matter, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way Michael handled my case. He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this law firm.

S.A.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
