What Does a Criminal Defense Lawyer Do?

A defense attorney serves a critical role in the criminal justice system by representing individuals accused of committing criminal offenses. Their primary function is to provide a strong and competent defense for their clients. Defense attorneys start by thoroughly investigating the charges and gathering evidence to build a robust defense strategy.

During a trial, defense attorneys work tirelessly to protect their clients' rights. They cross-examine witnesses, challenge the credibility of evidence presented by the prosecution, and present their own evidence and arguments to cast doubt on the accused's guilt. Their ultimate goal is to secure an acquittal for their client or, when appropriate, negotiate favorable plea agreements.

Outside the courtroom, defense attorneys offer legal counsel and guidance to their clients. They explain the legal process, potential consequences, and the available legal options, helping clients make informed decisions about their cases.

Additionally, defense attorneys are vigilant in safeguarding their clients' constitutional rights, including the right to a fair trial, the right to remain silent, and the right to legal representation.

In essence, a defense attorney's role is to be a dedicated advocate, protecting their clients' interests and ensuring that they receive a fair and just legal process, regardless of the charges they face.

Our Laguna Beach attorney understands the sensitive nature of these cases. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and offer free, confidential consultations. Call

Every Client Deserves & Needs

To borrow a phrase, “A good lawyer knows the law, but a great lawyer knows the judge.” Though this statement carries some truth, I am strongly under the belief that your lawyer must know both. When it comes to serious legal matters, you cannot afford to be represented by an attorney who does not know how to use his or her professional experience, knowledge, or qualifications to your advantage.
Our Laguna Beach criminal attorney knows how to successfully navigate the California criminal justice system and is equipped to help you secure the case results you deserve. Because we fully understand the nuances and intricacies involved in the laws that govern your professional practice, we know what it will take to help you walk away with a clean slate – and with your career intact.
