What is a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Criminal defense lawyers strive to protect the rights of their clients by ensuring that all relevant facts are presented fairly in court proceedings. They also work to make sure that their client's constitutional rights are not violated during the course of their case.
Criminal defense lawyers can provide invaluable assistance during a criminal case by offering experienced guidance through every step of the legal process. They can help evaluate evidence, prepare for trial, explain plea bargains, negotiate favorable settlements, and provide sound advice and moral support to their clients.
In addition, these lawyers may also be able to identify potential flaws in the prosecution's arguments or other legal issues that could lead to a dismissal of the case.
