What to Look for in a South Dakota Criminal Defense Attorney
Find an attorney with excellent credentials
Ask potential criminal defense attorneys in South Dakota about their educational background, any awards or commendations they've received for their work in criminal defense, and any professional legal organizations in which they are active participants. Involvement in professional organizations is an indication that an attorney is committed to a particular area of law. Check to see if your attorney is a member of organizations like:
Find an attorney who is well-respected
Look for an attorney who is well-respected in the community and among other legal professionals. Ask an attorney if they can provide you with a list of people you can contact for references.
Find an attorney who offers fair fees
Criminal defense attorneys will either charge a flat rate for their services or an hourly fee. How your attorney charges is largely dependent on the nature of your case. If your case is fairly simple and routine, a flat rate may be charged. If your case is complex and is going to demand a lot of the attorney's time, an hourly fee may be charged. Under no circumstances should a criminal defense attorney in South Dakota offer to represent you on a contingency fee basis -- that is, you don't pay the lawyer anything unless they win. This is an illegal practice.
Find an attorney who provides solid legal advice
While a criminal defense attorney cannot promise you results, he or she can provide you with sound advice and realistic expectations. If you find that an attorney who does not seem to be listening to you or going in the direction you would like to take your case, you may want to find someone else.
