LegalLaw247.com, January 09, 2018 ) It's not what you know its who you know - that is a saying that we have all heard at some point in our lives applied to some type of situation. That saying is never more applicable than when someone enters the legal system. Local lawyers always have an inherent advantage for their client. One of the reasons for that is that the local lawyers know the local system, they know the local judges, and they know the local prosecutors and other local attorneys. Equally as important, the judges, the local prosecutors, and other local lawyers know the local lawyer involved in the matter. Law is rarely equal. Its application varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and a lot of times even from courtroom to courtroom within a jurisdiction. An advantage a local lawyer has is that a local lawyer will know the unique tendencies and the unique personalities of the individual local judges, local prosecutors and the other local lawyers involved in that particular county, or that particular town. Experience in the legal profession does not come from just graduating law school or by taking and passing the bar. Neither of those teach the practical aspects of the practice of law. That only comes from years of practice, and from years of experience in the particular field in which that lawyer concentrates. For example, an experienced criminal defense attorney is typically one who is initiated into the law practice by years working as a prosecutor, or years working as a public defender in the county in which they now practice and serve. If you have a serious medical condition, go to a teaching hospital in a major city. If you need legal assistance, look for a TOP local and experienced courthouse lawyer in your town or county.
