What a Criminal Defense Lawyer Will Do When They Take Over Your Case
Violent criminal charges face far more serious difficulties than others. Juries can come into the case already assuming the worst. It takes an excellent defense attorney to combat this prejudice, turn the case around, and create the space for a better deal or an outright acquittal.
Your criminal defense attorney can help you use case evidence and the circumstances surrounding the case to build the best defense; one that makes sure your story gets told loudly, clearly, and sympathetically. A smart and experienced lawyer can challenge the prosecutor’s argument against you, forcing the prosecutor to fight every step of the way.
