Why You Must Hire a Former Prosecutor

After getting arrested, one of the first and important steps you must take is to hire a criminal defense lawyer to defend you. If you want a legal professional on your side with plenty of experience handling cases like yours, consider hiring a former prosecutor with the local courts.

The following are the a few reasons why you should hire a former prosecutor as your criminal defense attorney:

  • Extensive knowledge of both sides of the court – A former prosecutor understands how the State prepares for cases in order to obtain a conviction and can use that knowledge to help develop an effective and personalized defense strategy for their clients.

  • Trial-tested experience – Many people do not know that most cases are settled before trial. In fact, many lawyers only aim to negotiate a favorable plea deal without battling it out in the courtroom. On the other hand, state prosecutors spend most of their time at trial and effectively manage a heavy case load. A former prosecutor has an ample amount of trial experience.

  • Familiarity with local courts – Many former prosecutors end up handling cases in the same county where they worked for the District Attorney. This means they have already built close relationships with local judges and prosecutors and understand how each of them decides and handles certain cases.

Attorney Joe Ingram is a former prosecutor. Not only has he served as an Assistant District Attorney in Baldwin County, but he also was a panel member of the Criminal Justice Act panel for the Northern District of Alabama. Our Birmingham criminal defense lawyer frequently handles cases in all federal courts throughout Alabama.
