The consequences of a criminal conviction – and even just going through the process of dealing with criminal charges – can be life interrupting and altering. You want to work with somebody who knows what they are doing and takes a genuine interest in you and your situation.

Don’t forget that you are basically conducting a job interview. Take the opportunity to evaluate the person or people you are talking with and make sure you are comfortable that your best interests are a priority and will be adequately represented.
