Once a perpetrator has obtained a bond, he will be free to go forth from the prison he is being held and begin preparations for his appearance in court. Often times these preparations will consist of finding the right lawyer. There are thousands of practicing lawyers in the state of Georgia so you should be able to find the right one. It’s important to us that our buyers find their lawyer on time so that they’ll be ready to go on their court date.
You may have a legal problem and not know how to resolve it. Lawyers have been specially trained in the law and our legal system. And the right lawyer can advise and assist you with your particular problem. If you are facing criminal charges, a lawyer can help you understand your rights, and the strengths and weaknesses of your case. A lawyer knows the rules and procedures for arguing the case in court. And a lawyer can make a huge difference in whether or not your side of the story is successfully presented to a judge or jury. In some instances, failing to call a lawyer immediately can make the situation worse. If you are arrested or involved in a serious accident, someone should start gathering evidence as soon as possible.
To find the right counsel, we recommend starting with the people you might know. Maybe you know a lawyer in your neighborhood. Perhaps a lawyer who works for a corporation lives right across the street. These lawyers may be able to refer you to other lawyers who have experience with your type of problem. Finding a lawyer who has seen your situation before, much like finding a bondsman who has seen your situation before, can make a world of difference for your case. You could also ask your friends, co-workers and employers if they know any lawyers. Business owners and professionals such as bankers, ministers, doctors and social workers might be able to give you the name of a lawyer as well.
If you come up empty handed after trying to get recommendations from those in the local legal circle, we can give you the number for official referral services. A State Bar-certified lawyer referral service refers potential clients to attorneys. After interviewing the potential client, the referral service staff will match him with a lawyer who is experienced in the appropriate area of the law. Through this type of service, there is usually a small charge for the initial consultation with a lawyer. You can also check general advertisements for lawyers. When lawyer-shopping, always remember that the most expensive doesn’t mean the best. Look for someone that will know how the laws apply to your situation
