You need to feel you can open up and talk to your lawyer.
Before leaving to meet up with an Tyler TX criminal defense lawyer, it is important to bring a number of things along with you so you can be prepared to ask questions.
1. You will want to formulate a list of questions that you value in a criminal defense lawyer. You will want to look into the experience that a criminal defense lawyer has in the type of case that you are dealing with as well as their experience on a federal or state level of the law depending on the type of case that you are involved in. Asking questions about their hourly fee, or any questions that you have about your legal proceedings and the proceedings of the court, will also help you to be more prepared with your case.
2. You will want to take a pen and paper so that you can list what happens in each meeting with the lawyer. Taking notes on each of the meetings that you go to will help you to see which criminal defense lawyer will be able to do the most for you, or who is willing to do the most for you.
