First you have to graduate from college, then take the LSAT (like the SAT but for law school admission). Then study hard and graduate from Law School. Then study harder and take and pass the state bar exam. After being sworn in you then need to decide which type of criminal lawyer you wish to be misdemeanor or felony. Then commit a crime that fits the description and be apprehended, tried and convicted. You'll be a criminal lawyer.........and no longer a bar member and in jail. I think I would pursue either a straight criminal career of become an investment banker.
Advice given in this forum does not create an attorney - client relationship. No advice should be relied on without consulting with a local attorney.
Study for the LSAT and pass it, 3 years of law school full time, probably 6 months to study for the bar and hopefully pass the first time, accumulate about $100,000 to $200,000 in student loans based on the school you attend, deal with the Florida Bar admission process and hopefully you don't have anything on your credit report or criminal record (better check this first and get this all addressed and or cleared up). Now you are ready to start to suffer in the field of law and hopefully you can find someone to help and guide you with criminal law because not much of what you learned in law school will apply or be helpful in the real word of actual criminal law in the court room. Then again, this is just one opinion.
