Work with your attorney
Some people feel that the more attorneys they talk to, the better it would be for their case. That is not entirely true and not advisable to confuse the issue.
For one, your case may require immediate legal action, like a bond hearing or meeting filing deadlines with motions or filings. When people call around, the case may be compounded without needed immediate legal attention by an attorney. In fact, the case may actually become more complicated with the passaige of time. A saying "a day late and a dollar short" describes that well.
Thus, review several good practitioners, speak with them and commit to the one you select.
