What Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Do?
A criminal defense attorney is a legal professional who represents individuals or organizations charged with criminal offenses. Their main role is to protect the legal rights of their clients and ensure that they receive a fair trial.
The responsibilities of a criminal defense attorney may include:
- Case Evaluation: They meet with clients to discuss the details of their cases, review evidence, and determine the best legal strategy.
- Investigation: They investigate the circumstances of the case, interview witnesses, review police reports, and gather evidence to build a strong defense.
- Negotiation: They negotiate plea deals with prosecutors to reduce charges or seek a lesser sentence for their clients.
- Trial representation: They represent their clients in court, presenting evidence and arguing their case to a judge or jury.
- Appeals: They may also handle appeals of their clients' convictions or sentences.
