What Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Do?
Ultimately, the primary responsibility of criminal defense attorneys is to defend the rights of their clients. The U.S. Constitution guarantees certain rights to individuals accused of crimes, including the right to a fair trial, the right to remain silent, and the right to an attorney. A criminal defense attorney works tirelessly to ensure these rights are respected, and their client is treated fairly throughout the legal process.
Their role kicks off with an initial consultation, a critical first meeting where the attorney:
- learns about the case,
- reviews evidence,
- answers your questions, and
- discusses potential defense strategies with the client.
Following the consultation, the attorney embarks on an investigation of the crime. They scrutinize the prosecution's evidence, interview witnesses, and gather information that may help prove their client's innocence or reduce the severity of the punishment.
The attorney then represents the client in court. They present arguments, challenge the prosecution's evidence, cross-examine witnesses, and aim to create reasonable doubt among the jury. Throughout the trial, the attorney navigates complex legal procedures and rules, ensuring their client’s rights are upheld.
