I had to find a Sacramento criminal attorney that was worth his weight in gold not that long ago. I had no need to have one in my Rolodex, so I had no choice but to go online and look at the various attorneys in our city. I could not even ask one of my friends because none of them would ever have needed a criminal attorney either. I have a feeling that one day we will laugh about this, but I have a feeling it is going to be pretty far in the future!
What happened was my grandmother was arrested. This sweet little old lady who goes to church every Sunday and still volunteers at the outreach center when she is able to was arrested for selling drugs. I knew that there had to be some kind of mistake because she would never do anything like that. The police officer that I spoke with said the person she sold them to was an undercover police officer, which made it even more puzzling. Granted, my grandmother can do some silly things, but this was o out of character for her. I knew we had to get to the bottom of it, but we also had to get her a great attorney too.
Getting her an attorney ended up being the easy part. I just did a couple of online searches and went with my gut on the best law firm, based on their website as well as reviews that I had read. The attorney that I spoke with was confident that he would be able to get the charges dropped once he heard the story, and he did just that. When we found out what had really transpired, we didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. One thing I do know is that we have to keep my gram under better watch, because sometimes she does things that even she can’t explain!
