This week’s blog post revolves around the concept of knowledge vs. what can be done in Court. Everyone wants to know if their lawyer knows the law.
That is typically a low threshold of proof to a client that is not a lawyer. However, it is also important that your lawyer be able to tell you what can or will be done with your case despite the law.
Part of your lawyer’s job should be to keep you informed with your case as it progresses. Another and more valuable skill is to be able to accurately predict what can and will happen the next time you go to court.
Ethically, a lawyer cannot guarantee an outcome in a criminal case. However, your lawyer should be familiar enough with the law, court, prosecutor, police, etc., to give you enough information to satisfy your fears of the unknown.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” -Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32 president of the United States. A great lawyer will make you feel this way before, during, and after the representation.
