What is a Defense Attorney?

A criminal defense lawyer is a legal professional who provides legal counsel and representation to those charged with criminal offenses. These lawyers represent the accused in court, working to protect their rights and ensure they get a fair trial.

They also help clients understand their charges, determine a plea deal, or develop a strategy for defending against the charges. In other words, criminal defense attorneys act as advocates for their clients and work hard to keep them out of jail or minimize their sentence if convicted.

The other legal duties of criminal defense lawyers include:

  • Investigate the arrest and analyze evidence collected by law enforcement officials
  • Explain both the strengths and weaknesses of the case while keeping in mind ethical considerations such as confidentiality and loyalty to the client
  • Prepare for trial by drafting motions or cross-examining witnesses as part of their job.
  • Negotiate a favorable plea agreement on behalf of the client
  • Communicate clearly with their client throughout the legal process
