These days, we’re all looking to find the “best” of everything: The best restaurant; the best hotel; the best deal. We look to websites, social media, and to customer reviews, all trying to gauge the best of something. Attorneys are not immune to this quest. When someone is arrested or faces criminal charges, he/she will start the search to find the best criminal attorney in Ann Arbor.
While this search is subjective and can never be answered “correctly,” questions to ask when looking for the best fit as a criminal attorney in Ann Arbor:
“How is each criminal attorney in Ann Arbor rated by independent services, such as Martindale Hubbell?”
“Does the criminal attorney have positive and numerous client reviews/testimonials?”
“Is the criminal attorney board-certified in criminal law?”
“Does the criminal attorney have an actual office in Ann Arbor?”
Daniel T. Geherin is the owner of the Geherin Law Group PLLC (GLG Michigan), a local criminal justice firm based in Ann Arbor that specializes in defense of criminal defense and DUI/OWI cases. Dan is a former prosecutor and board-certified criminal trial attorney with over 22 years’ experience in criminal law. He has received the highest rating for legal ability and ethics, AV-Preeminent©, by Martindale Hubbell. He has received numerous awards and accolades by objective rating services ranging from Leading Lawyers to SuperLawyers to Detroit Business Magazine in the field of criminal defense. He is an author of several books related to criminal defense and is a frequent lecturer at the Michigan Institute of Continuing Legal Education (ICLE).
Very few Ann Arbor Criminal Defense Attorneys have received the number and variety of 5-star client reviews that Dan has. He has a two-decade track record of success in the courtroom (which he verifies on his website) and a long list of extremely satisfied clients. In short, he is an experienced and accomplished criminal justice attorney who has devoted his entire career to helping people and doing so at a very professional level.
So, while no attorney can or should accurately claim that he or she is the best criminal attorney in Ann Arbor, there are factors and criteria that might help you narrow down a list. Then, and perhaps most importantly, you should consult with those attorneys and ask questions to help cement the decision, such as:
“Do you offer free consultations on criminal cases in Ann Arbor?”
“Do you promise to keep me apprised of all case developments and communicate with me?”
“Are you going to keep my case, or pawn it off to some associate or other attorney?”
