Defense from a Team that Cares

What is a Defense Attorney?

A criminal defense attorney is someone who works to protect the rights of a person accused of a crime. They work to ensure that their client is provided with the best possible defense against the charges they are facing, and help them throughout all stages of the criminal justice process.

Defense attorneys are knowledgeable in both state and federal laws governing criminal cases. They will thoroughly review case documents and evidence, conduct detailed investigations into all aspects of a case, interview witnesses or obtain expert opinions, negotiate deals with prosecutors to reduce sentences or penalties, represent their clients during court proceedings and hearings, argue motions before judges, cross-examine witnesses on behalf of their clients, file appeals if necessary, and advise clients on how best to present themselves in court.

Criminal defense attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of their clients and providing them with the best possible outcome for their cases. They will guide their clients through the complex criminal justice process, ensure that all legal procedures are followed correctly, and fight for a fair resolution to the case. A good criminal defense attorney is an invaluable asset, who can make a big difference in the result of a criminal case.
