 "As a defense attorney, I get to help individuals. I get to meet their families, find out about their background, and why they are in the situation they are in. I get to confirm that most people are good and some just have made mistakes along the way or have been put into very difficult situations. I get to represent them and tell their story so that they are seen as people and not just a name in a file."

What is a Defense Attorney?

A criminal defense lawyer is a legal professional who specializes in representing individuals or organizations accused of committing criminal offenses. Their primary role is to defend their clients' rights and ensure they receive a fair trial.

In a criminal case, the defense attorney's role typically includes the following:

  • Investigating the case: The lawyer will gather and review all the evidence presented by the prosecution to identify any weaknesses in their case or potential defenses.
  • Building a defense strategy: Based on the evidence, the lawyer will develop a defense strategy tailored to their client's circumstances, which may include presenting an alibi, questioning the credibility of witnesses, or challenging the legality of evidence.
  • Representing the client in court: The attorney will argue on behalf of their client in court, cross-examine prosecution witnesses, and present evidence to support their client's defense.
  • Negotiating plea bargains: In some cases, the attorney may negotiate with the prosecution to secure a plea bargain for their client, which could involve reducing the charges or the sentence in exchange for a guilty plea.
  • Advocating for their client's rights: The defense lawyer will protect their client's constitutional rights, such as the right to remain silent, the right to a fair trial, and the right to legal representation.
