defendant is charged with serious crimes such as
murder or burglary. They can provide strong legal
defense to their clients whether the charges
include a major felony or a misdemeanor. A
majority of legal issues that a Cobb County

before the actual date of the trial and people
engage them for their protection of rights before
the charge is proved or when they suspect that

  • Assessment of the case

The primary role of the criminal defense attorney
begins much before the process of trial begins as
the professional needs to have in-depth
understanding of the case. After gathering the
entire information, they have to determine the
odds of the client from the perspective of
acquittal or conviction and start planning for
representing the case in the court.
  • Going for trial

Eventually it is the decision of the person
charged with the crime to decide whether to go
for trial or not and the role of the attorney is
to help them decide and choose the ideal option
without forcing anything on them. When a case
moves towards the process of trial, the job of
the attorney tends to become complicated although
a lot depends on the nature of the case or
whether the case is heard in the presence of a
single judge or a jury.
