Don't tell me you think it's prudent to select the attorney who will defend you just because "he was recommended online". I want to know why. What are the qualifications. It's like interviewing someone for a job...the job of defending my rights and my freedom!
The OP asked for a recommendation. He got it. If you want more info, that's your job to research it. Like you said, it's your butt on the line. I've broke bread with most of these guys (the FM's and SM's) and would trust them with my life. Their recommendation is great for me. If you don't take them at their word, then you need to research it on your own.
