What is a Criminal Defense Attorney?

A criminal defense attorney is a lawyer who represents and defends individuals charged with criminal activities. Their purpose in a criminal case is to ensure that justice is served for their clients, and to protect the rights of defendants. 

A criminal defense lawyer works to fight for the best possible outcome for their client within the boundaries of the law. 

This can include: 

  • Investigating their client’s case
  • Gathering evidence and witnesses
  • Filing motions in court
  • Cross-examining witnesses
  • Advocating for reduced charges or sentences
  • Negotiating plea deals
  • Representing their clients in court.

A criminal  attorney also has an ethical duty to provide zealous representation on behalf of all clients regardless of guilt or innocence. By working hard to develop strategies that will help mitigate potential punishments or even acquit defendants altogether, defense attorneys play an important role in upholding justice and constitutional rights.
