Researching an attorney online isn’t easy – usually you can only find an attorney’s own website which tells you nothing about how qualified they are to represent you. We are trying to solve that problem by creating a place for people to share their real experiences with attorneys and giving others a chance to read these real reviews.
Best Attorney Reviews
In general, the best indicator of an attorney’s likeliness to represent you well is their history with past clients. This information is not at all meant to take the place of legal advice, it is just a place for people to share information freely.

A criminal case may be more complex than you imagine. Some people who have been charged with a crime make the mistake of believing that all they have to do is show up and “tell their side” of the story.
Unfortunately, the criminal justice process is much more complex than that. For instance, in some states certain defenses must be declared in advance, and if the deadline is missed, that evidence cannot be introduced in court.
Witnesses generally have to be revealed in advance, and in a certain form, or they will not be allowed to testify.
In addition to jail time, a criminal conviction may mean a variety of penalties, including possible:
- Mandatory drug or alcohol counseling
- Drivers license suspension
- Registration requirements and restrictions on where you may live or work
- Community service
