00:03
one big difference with the firm is
00:06
experience I’ve been doing nothing but
00:08
criminal defense in the state of
00:09
California for 25 years now I don’t do
00:12
divorces I don’t do wills and when you
00:15
do anything for a quarter of a century
00:17
you tend to figure out what you’re doing
00:20
another difference is that a substantial
00:22
portion of my practice is appellate law
00:24
so I’m always up to date on the law and
00:27
I’ve got the research writing and
00:29
analytical skills that cases will often
00:33
need to come to a favorable disposition
00:35
and lastly I keep my firm very small I’m
00:39
not one of those firms where you’re
00:41
gonna wade through an army of paralegals
00:43
and secretaries in order to get to me
00:45
I’m available to my clients I’m
00:47
available to my clients families and I’m
00:50
available of 24/7 hiring a criminal
00:58
defense lawyer is a very difficult thing
01:00
for my clients I don’t think you should
01:02
be going to Yelp to choose a lawyer like
01:05
you would a Thai restaurant one great
01:08
place to start I think is peer review
01:10
websites and one of the most important
01:12
is the super lawyer website it’s a peer
01:15
nominated panel reviewed honor that’s
01:18
designated for the top 5% of attorneys
01:21
in each subject area you can’t apply for
01:25
it you can’t pay for it you have to be
01:27
nominated by your peers the people who
01:29
know your work best and I’m proud to say
01:32
that I’m one of the very few criminal
01:34
defense attorneys in San Francisco to
01:36
have been named a super lawyer more than
01:38
ten times and another thing to do is
01:40
just use your skills that and the your
01:44
sixth sense that you’ve picked up
01:45
throughout the course of your life in
01:47
selecting an attorney you know does your
01:49
lawyer seem intelligent confident does
01:51
he answer your questions directly does
01:54
he give you answers and just use the the
01:57
skills that you have developed in
01:59
figuring out you know who who people are
02:03
that you want to work with and that’s
02:05
the most important thing is having a
02:06
criminal defense attorney that you think
02:09
you could have a good working
02:10
relationship with
02:12
you
02:13
