Your Lawyer Should Primarily Practice Criminal Defense

Hiring a criminal defense lawyer is like taking your car to a mechanic for repair. You wouldn’t take your car to be serviced by a boat mechanic. While a boat mechanic may understand the basics of an internal combustion engine, they likely aren’t familiar with all the intricacies of the modern-day automobile.


Just like you wouldn’t hire a random mechanic, you shouldn’t hire a random lawyer. Criminal law is a highly specialized and technical area of the law that requires the skills of an experienced defense lawyer. Criminal defense lawyer John-Patrick Mullen-Lujan has extensive experience handling both misdemeanor and felony criminal cases.

Your Lawyer Should Have Experience with the Charges You’re Facing

As stated above, criminal law can be a very technical area of law. Generally, the more severe the charges, the more technical and complex the legal issues.


When searching for a lawyer, you should always ask what experience the lawyer has with cases like yours. If the lawyer doesn’t have experience with those charges or cannot answer your questions, then you should consider contacting another lawyer for help.

Your Lawyer Should Be Communicative & Responsive

A good criminal defense lawyer will maintain contact with you throughout the representation to ensure that your questions are answered in a timely manner. It's not uncommon for someone to hire a lawyer only to later find that the lawyer doesn't answer or return the client's calls.


This is usually an indication that the lawyer is representing too many clients. JPLaw, P.C. is different. The firm limits the number of clients it agrees to represent so that every case gets the attention it deserves.
