ROCKFORD ATTORNEY SCHREIBER’S CHECKLIST TO CHOOSING YOUR ATTORNEY
When you have been arrested, choosing the right attorney will have a lifelong and lasting impact on yourself and loved ones.  Choosing the right attorney will be one of the biggest decisions a person can make.  Choose your Rockford Lawyer wisely.

1. EXPERIENCE
Commitment to our client’s rights.

There is just no substitute for experience. A great criminal defense attorney will have many of years of experience at the same location.  Many attorney’s bounce around and around from one Firm to another thinking they are progressing in their career without focusing on the true needs of their clients.  Attorney Schreiber founded SchreiberLaw in 1994 at the same place and same location as it is to this day.  Our address, phone numbers, commitment to excellence has never changed and has never wavered under one common theme.

2. DEDICATED CAREER.
If you are facing criminal charges, you don’t just want an attorney’s, you want a criminal defense attorney who has dedicated a large portion of their career to the practice of criminal law through handling a majority of his practice handling criminal matters.

You do not want any Rockford attorney that will take any case that walks in his door (immigration, bankruptcy).  Criminal Law is very complex.  Choose a criminal defense lawyer who has dedicated a large portion of his career to this specific area of the law.

3. FIGHTING FOR YOUR RIGHTS
Pick a criminal defense lawyer that is passionate about fighting for his clients rights.  

There are too many criminal defense lawyers who are burned out or just looking to pick up a case. That is not what you’re looking for.  Choose an attorney with fire in their belly who believes in what they are doing.  An attorney who cares about his clients enough to fight hard for them.

4. HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER
Select a criminal attorney who has reasonable fees. 
Moreover, a criminal law attorney who cares about his clients will be flexible in payment options.

A great criminal defense attorney will be highly sought after. Meaning they will have plenty of business and will not have to gauge their clients.  It is true you get what you pay for; on the other hand, a well established reputable criminal law defense attorney will not need to gauge a client on fees because of an arrest. 

5. VERSATILITY
Attorney Schreiber has the skills and experience to negotiate or go to trial, as needed.

To achieve great results in court, your criminal law attorney needs to be versatile to do whatever it takes and needs to be done under the circumstances to achieve the ultimate results for their clients.  If arrested, you need an attorney who can effectively resolve your case through aggressive plea bargaining, or where necessary an attorney who has demonstrated an ability to take a case to trial and be successful litigating the case. 

6. LOCAL EXPERIENCE
Just like there is no substitute for experience, there is also no substitute for local experience.  

Each Court and each County is different.  Every State’s Attorney office has different policies, and every Judge handles cases a little different.  If you are facing criminal charges, you will want an attorney who has experience in your specific courtroom.  A criminal defense attorney with that degree of local experience in your specific court will be much better suited to help you than an otherwise experienced attorney who is an outsider in court.

It is hard to overstate the value of an experienced criminal attorney when defending against a criminal accusation.  An aggressive defense lawyer will likely be familiar with the court, charges, judges and State attorney’s involved in your case.  This experience and familiarity is crucial. Attorney Schreiber has over two decades of local experience and in working the courts throughout the Northern Illinois and Rockford areas.
