An Experienced Attorney to Handle Your Legal Affairs
What does an experienced former judge know that an out-of-town attorney or a freshly minted law graduate does not?
Lots of things. He knows the local judiciary. He knows the people at the courthouse, on the police force, the sheriff's office and the State Patrol. He knows which defenses judges find most offensive, and which are most persuasive. He knows which approaches work, and which are a waste of time. He knows when to speak up, and when to sit down.
In short, he knows the law, as it is written down in books and acted out in real life.
"Criminal law is where our constitutional rights make their greatest stand. It is where the rubber meets the road. It is the acid test of our freedoms." — Judge John E. Turner (Ret.)
Maybe You Should Hire a Specialist From the City Instead?
There is no taking away the special skills of legal specialists. But you are better off hiring a lawyer who knows not just the particular problem you are dealing with, but a broad cross-section of other areas as well.
Why? Because in real law things tend to slosh together. Tax law, real estate law, contract law, estate law — most cases have elements of more than one practice area.
What does an out-of-town specialist do when a case overflows his or her practice area? He or she calls in reinforcements, and that costs you money.
