"Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything truly wrong, he was arrested."

-Franz Kafka, The Trial

Criminal Defense



Hiring a lawyer can be a stressful and confusing process. How do you differentiate a masterful salesperson from a masterful litigator? In the end, the best advice is to do your homework on the prospective lawyer and his or her reputation. Doing this will usually only help to narrow your search down to a small group. Then, how to pick from that small group?  It is important that you feel very comfortable with your lawyer. That is, feel as if she will treat your case as her own, with respect and professionalism. If a lawyer makes you a promise about a particular outcome, be very suspicious of salesmanship. Seasoned lawyers know better than to promise outcomes because every case is different.

Be sure to thoroughly interview each attorney you are considering. If an attorney seems frustrated because you ask questions about his or her experience level, caseload, accessibility, and priorities - keep looking. Your attorney's experience, motivation and energy level can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. The following are ten reasons we believe you would be wise to retain my law firm:

  1. We have an outstanding track record of excellent results and client satisfaction achieved through experience in investigating cases, creativity, detailed knowledge of the law, and hard work.

  2. We are highly accessible to our clients and are available to personally address any concerns regarding your case.

  3. We are willing to initially discuss the matter with you, prioritize goals of representation and quickly determine what action you should, or should not take.

  4. No case is insignificant to the person charged, or to us. We handle cases ranging from driving on a suspended license to possession or sale of drugs to murder.

  5. The right to make major decisions in all cases belongs to the client. We will never try to convince or force you to take a course of action just because it is an "easier" road.

  6. We will attempt to get our clients out of jail on their own recognizance without having to post bail. However, this is not always possible and alternatively, we will seek and fight for a bail reduction.

  7. Twenty-five years of criminal defense experience has given Tangi insight on how prosecutors and judges think.  This experience has proven invaluable in preparing defenses for trial and in negotiating favorable dispositions for clients accused of serious criminal charges.

  8. If it is the client's wish, we will prepare for trial, intensely, and seek a not guilty verdict. We are always prepared, willing and able to fight in court to successfully resolve a client's case.

  9. We keep our clients informed regarding their case. It is your life at stake, and you have a right at all reasonable times to know what is happening in your case.

  10. We promise aggressive, but ethical, representation from start to finish. From our office in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, our law firm represents clients all over the state of Mississippi and Louisiana.
