Frequently Asked Questions:
How important is an attorney’s win/loss record?
Clients occasionally want to know my win/loss record before they hire me. Lawyers sometimes advertise their high success rate, or claim that they have never lost a case. These types of statistics are meaningless. If a lawyer always wins, it is probably because he settles most of his cases, drops the client when the case cannot be settled, or does not accept difficult cases. I look at each case individually, and advise my clients to settle only when it is in their best interest. I will not hesitate to take a case to trial, even when it is difficult. My job is to put my clients in the best position to win. If my client loses, it is never for lack of effort or preparation.
The 3 most common questions concern:
(a) qualifications and experience handling similar cases;
(b) the cost of representation; and
(c) if convicted, the extent of punishment they face.
At Carter DeYoung, we utilize a team approach based upon experience.
Two of our attorneys are former criminal prosecutors, and one was a former police officer and FBI agent. We have longstanding relationships with private investigators and expert witnesses that complement the legal services we provide.
