Why Do I Need An Experienced Attorney?
Imagine for a moment that your doctor tells you that you need surgery. Imagine now that you are given the option of having a medical resident perform your surgery, or a surgeon who has been practicing for many years.
Chances are, you would choose the experienced surgeon if given the option. Why? Because experience is what leads to knowledge. An experienced surgeon may have handled countless surgeries similar to yours. They know how to tell when something is going wrong, and they most likely know how to fix it.
The same is true for experienced lawyers. When you are facing a serious criminal charge, having an experienced attorney on your side can be the best defense.
Familiar With The Players And The System
Experienced lawyers know the system they work within backward and forward. I am attorney George F. Hildebrandt, and I have been practicing criminal defense in Syracuse, New York, for more than 30 years.
I know the motions to file and strategies to pursue that are crucial to your case. I know the judges who are likely to hear your case — and I know what arguments they find most compelling. I also know the prosecutors who work in the Syracuse courts. I know their style and how they approach certain types of cases.
All of this knowledge helps me determine how best to handle your case.
Finding The Most Effective Defense
An experienced lawyer will not only know the players involved in your case. They will also know what type of defense is likely to be effective in your unique situation.
As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. And while I can never promise results, I have handled countless cases in my three-plus decades of experience. I know what works and I know what doesn’t. I know where to look for holes in the case against you, and I know how to build effective defenses to protect your future.
