Benefits of Hiring a Former Prosecutor

When determining a legal representative after getting arrested for or charged with a criminal offense, you may be wondering what credentials you should look for. While you should obtain counsel from a lawyer who has an exceptional track record of success in defending criminal cases, keep in mind the benefits of also having someone with prosecution experience.

A prosecutor is an attorney who chooses what charges to file against a person accused of a crime and then proceeds to try the case in front of a judge or jury. A lawyer familiar with both sides of a criminal trial may be better suited for your case.

The following are three main benefits of hiring a former prosecutor for your case:

  1. Extensive courtroom litigation experience – Many lawyers practice law without ever stepping foot in the courtroom since some cases can be settled without a trial. A seasoned prosecutor spends much of his or her career litigating cases in court. If your case reaches trial, you need to have an attorney who will be better equipped to defend you.
  2. Comprehensive understanding of the criminal justice process – How much experience a lawyer has in conducting jury trials is an important factor to consider. Having a former prosecutor on your side will almost guarantee that your attorney will have the previous jury trial experience needed to offer you the best defense available.
  3. Knows how the prosecution will handle your case – A former prosecutor will better understand how the district attorney will approach your case. It is a welcome advantage to have someone on your side with firsthand experience of the other side’s perspective.

With years of experience as a former prosecutor, our Kansas City criminal defense attorney at Rokusek Stein Law, LLC understands that there are two sides to every story.
