Jury Trials are necessary and are an integral part of a criminal defense attorney's arsenal. Great jury verdicts lead to great plea deals. If you are not scared of trying cases and you are winning trials your plea deals will reflect that ability. Look around and before you find your attorney see if they try cases. See if they have won at trial? If they have, how many? Circuit versus District Trials?
When I look around and I see the courts and trials in Louisville, I realize how few attorneys have trials consistently. I'm sure there are defense attorneys that have not won at jury trial. There are so many attorneys that have practiced 10 years and more who have not had more than 5 jury trials and have still never one a trial. This is not a fluke.
When I say "jury trial", be sure, that is not a "dismissal." Every trial that is won I guess equates to a dismissal, but certainly, not every dismissal is from a jury trial. Find out your attorney's background and figure out what is going on.
