Because it fits my personal skills and strong points. I enjoy trial and litigating cases as well as the challenges and satisfaction of working in criminal law.
This is generally helpful and allows the client to make educated decisions in their cases. However, it is important to remember that the reason a client hires an attorney is for the experience and practical knowledge that he or she brings to the case, and self-education does have its limits in a legal context.
I am not very willing to review documents prepared by clients, as it is essential to have representation in criminal cases. Criminal law is not an area of law where a client should ever be unrepresented, and it is not possible to obtain decent results by being in pro per as it can sometimes be in family law or civil cases.
I do not believe that clients are ever best-served by representing themselves in a criminal case. It is one kind of case where an attorney is absolutely essential. For that reason, I do not provide coaching in this area.
