Hiring a criminal defense lawyer

I spend all of my working hours defending people accused of crimes. However, because I chose to be a public defender, you can't hire me, I have to be appointed. If you are charged with a crime and don't qualify for a public defender, you should probably talk to a reputable criminal defense lawyer.

Brian Tannebaum, a criminal defense lawyer in Florida, wrote an excellent e-book, "The Truth About Hiring a Criminal Defense Lawyer" that covers the process of finding and hiring a criminal defense attorney. Read it before you hire a lawyer for your criminal case. It'll answer most of your questions and make it a lot less scary.


Coffee: Is there anything it can't do?

I like coffee. It wakes me up, helps me focus, and tastes good.

Turns out, it's not just good, it's good for you. If you're a guy, it lowers your risk for prostate cancer. If you're a woman, it lowers your risk for breast cancer. If you drink, it lowers your risk of getting cirrhosis.

So have another cup of joe.
