Facing criminal charges is incredibly stressful. Your job, freedom, and life are literally on the line.

If you’ve faced criminal charges of any kind, you deserve the best criminal defense attorney in Colorado Springs.

However, unless you’ve been through the process before, you may not know where to start to find a top defense attorney.

Below are a few things to keep in mind when looking for the right attorney to defend you.

Experience Matters

If the government claims you committed a serious crime, you want a lawyer who is comfortable handling your case.

You want to avoid feeling like you need to take a plea because your attorney is not confident taking your case to trial.

A confident criminal defense attorney has handled many criminal cases of varying degrees, negotiated numerous plea bargains, and taken many cases to trial. 

So, when interviewing criminal defense lawyers, ask the lawyer how long they have been practicing criminal law. Ask what types of cases they regularly handle and how many cases they have taken to trial.

While some lawyers claim to have decades of experience, it may be that they worked in civil litigation for years and have only tried a handful of criminal cases. When your freedom is at stake, this is information you need to know.

At the Lux Law Firm, you get the vast experience of former Deputy District Attorney Austin Lux. As a prosecutor, Mr. Lux handled thousands of criminal cases on behalf of the government.

Therefore, he possesses an amount of criminal trial experience that few criminal attorneys can claim. His time at the prosecutor’s office also gives him unique insight into how the government prepares cases and which defenses have the highest likelihood of success.

Insist on Results

When looking for the best criminal defense attorney in Colorado Springs, it is important that you ask about a lawyer’s track record.

If a lawyer isn’t upfront about their results, they probably have something to hide. Maybe they’ve only handled a few cases. Or perhaps many of the cases they have handled resulted in poor outcomes for their clients.

Attorney Austin Lux has a successful track record for all types of misdemeanor and felony offenses. For example, he recently secured the dismissal of a marijuana cultivation case that carried a mandatory sentence of 8 to 32 years in prison if the jury found his client guilty.

He also recently won an acquittal for his juvenile client who was charged with felony assault following a house party. The court found Attorney Lux’s client acted in self-defense.

When you ask Attorney Lux for his case results, he is proud to share them with you so you can be sure that you are in good hands.

You Deserve to Be a Priority

A top defense attorney will make it clear that you are their priority. Many Colorado Springs criminal defense lawyers take on a tremendous number of cases.

This can interfere with their ability to provide each client with the attention they deserve.

At the Lux Law Firm, we only take cases when we are confident that we can help. We don’t overburden ourselves by accepting every case that comes through the door.

This enables us to give you the individualized attention that can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. From the minute you hire us, we immediately get to work.

We use our vast experience and resources to get you the best possible result for your case.

Make Sure You Get Along with Your Attorney

When you hire a lawyer, they become your trusted counselor throughout the duration of your case. Some cases take weeks—others take months or even years to resolve.

Therefore, picking an attorney you are comfortable working with is important.  

Meet with Several Lawyers

When you are looking to purchase a car, you typically don’t buy the first one you see. Instead, you shop around a bit. The same principle applies to hiring a lawyer.

Don’t assume that just because you met with a lawyer you have to hire them. Meet with several lawyers, get a feeling for each one, learn about their credentials, and then decide which one is best qualified to represent you.
