Alot of clients wonder – what should I look for in a criminal defense attorney? Of course, you want a lawyer who is experienced and has a good reputation in the community. But ultimately, you want a lawyer that you trust. You want someone with whom you feel comfortable.

Here at Ferguson Hill Filous, we like to focus on Client-Centered representation. But what does Client-Centered Representation mean?

Clients Need A Lawyer Who:

  1. Represents a person, not just a case file.
  2. Listens to them and represents them with compassion, dignity and respect.
  3. Gets to know the client. Becomes familiar with the unique dimensions of the client’s life and communities.
  4. Makes sure the client’s privacy is respected. Ensures the confidential nature of the client-attorney relationship is protected.
  5. Communicates with the client through client meetings, phone calls, and letters. Takes the time to advise and explain with understanding and respect.
  6. With the client’s permission, listens to and communicates with the client’s family.
  7. Pursues investigation of the facts of the case.
  8. Thoroughly and carefully reads all documents, provides the client with copies, and discusses them with the client.
  9. Knows the law and investigates the facts, and applies both creatively and competently.
  10. Aggressively seeks resources, such as interpreters, experts, and investigators, necessary for effective representation.

At Ferguson Hill Filous, we want our clients to know that we work for them, we fight for them.
