What is a Defense Attorney?

A criminal defense attorney is a key figure in the criminal justice system. They provide legal representation to those accused of crimes, ensuring that defendants’ rights are protected and that they receive a fair trial.

Criminal defense lawyers work to build an effective defense strategy on behalf of their clients and may use a number of techniques such as plea bargaining, motion practice, and jury selection. They also investigate cases and can consult with experts to bolster their clients’ defense. In addition, they may advise their clients on what plea they should enter or whether they should contest the charges and go to trial. Ultimately, a criminal defense attorney’s goal is to seek justice for their client—whether that means an acquittal or a reduced sentence.  

Whether you’re facing criminal charges or have already been tried and convicted, a criminal defense lawyer can help protect your rights and build an effective defense strategy for your case. With their knowledge of the law, they can challenge the evidence against you and ensure that all aspects of the case are thoroughly reviewed. A criminal defense attorney can be the difference between a fair trial and an unjust conviction. With the right legal professional by your side, you have a fighting chance at achieving justice. 

Why You Need a Criminal Defense Attorney

Regardless of what charges are levied against you, you need a criminal defense attorney on whom you can rely. A criminal conviction carries ramifications that exceed the legal punishment you may receive. It can affect your family life, limit your ability to secure a job or housing, and have far-reaching consequences that last for years. But the burden of proof in criminal cases falls on the prosecution. We will develop a criminal defense strategy that establishes reasonable doubt that you are responsible for the crime with which you have been charged. We will customize a plan that incorporates the facts in your case as well as the boundaries of the law to ensure you obtain the best possible judgment or settlement.
