If you are in need of a criminal defense attorney, you should call immediately. If the attorney will not speak with you on the phone you should move on to a different attorney. During the initial phone contact you will need to tell the attorney the pending charges, your criminal history, and the county the case is pending. You should tell him the general facts. Anything you tell an attorney is covered by attorney client privilege. He should be able to tell you attorney fees and different results. Make sure you feel confident in the attorney. Make sure you have a written fee agreement.
