  • If this is for the first time you are hiring a
    Criminal defense lawyer as a defendant, then you
    must be curious to know what and how they work?
    You must have a wide range of questions on your
    mind. For instance, what is the criminal justice
    system in general? How does it work? What things
    I should consider to hire my lawyer? What and how
    he will do to prove me innocent? And many more.
  • Therefore, to make it easier for you, here are a
    few things that your criminal defense lawyer will
    do for you and you must know it.

Investigating the charges
  • The DUI defence lawyer will not only depend on
    the evidence gathered by the State. Instead, he
    will go beyond the process and conduct an
    investigation on his own about the allegations.
    It may include, interrogation with witnesses,
    inspecting the scene, and maybe he will employ a
    private investigator to uncover additional
    evidence.

4
Protecting your rights
  • The attorney who is experienced will always know
    how to protect your constitutional rights. Even
    in some cases, your attorney will take direct
    action to protect those rights. For instance, the
    prosecution desire to conduct a search of your
    home or business, this is when your attorney will
    object and ask for a warrant first.

5
Negotiating a resolution
  • In most case, the prosecuting attorney offers a
    defendant which can resolve the case without any
    need of a trial. Needless to say, accepting a
    plea agreement means proving a defendant guilty
    to at least one criminal offense. As an accused,
    you must accept a guilty plea agreement however,
    it is the job of your attorney to negotiating the
    most advantageous terms possible for you before
    you decide to accept a plea agreement.

6
Preparing for trial
  • Every experienced criminal defense lawyer starts
    preparing for trial from day one. And why not?
    After all, an attorney never knows whether a case
    will end up going to trial or not. Therefore,
    they believe in considering a trial from the very
    beginning of the case. In addition, it involves
    investigating the evidence and preparing your
    defense, framing proposed jury instructions, and
    a wide variety of other things that usually
    happen behind the scenes.

7
Final Words
  • So these are few things that your criminal
    defense lawyer will do for you and you must know
    it. If you want to know more about criminal
    defense attorney or what else they do behind the
    scene, feel free to write below in the comment
