Quick Info

What Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Do?

Sacramento criminal defense lawyers represent defendants during the stages leading to a trial or plea, and at the trial itself. They give the defendant legal advice, legal counseling, and they represent them before the court.

Defense attorneys can begin the representation of a client at an early stage in the proceeding. In many cases, they start counseling the client before he or she is even charged with a crime. Criminal defense professionals can start helping a client when the police are merely investigating illegal activity, or if they have started interrogating a potential suspect.

Some of the things a defense attorney does includes:

  • Counseling defendants during questioning or interrogation by law enforcement
  • Preparing the case and representing the client pre-trial
  • Engaging in plea negotiations with the prosecutor (District Attorney)
  • Writing legal briefs or motions on the defendant’s behalf and arguing them before the court
  • Performing defense investigations and locating/interviewing defense witnesses
  • Examining the case for possible defenses and presenting them to the court
  • Performing jury trials to obtain an acquittal
  • Assisting a defendant during the sentencing stage
  • Requesting appeals
  • Helping defendants with the probation or parole process

A defense counselor at law can help in many different ways. If you think you may be under investigation or need assistance after an arrest, contact a criminal lawyer as soon as possible to preserve your rights!
