At Corrigan Welbourn Stokke, APLC, our team of experienced Orange County criminal defense attorneys is dedicated to protecting your rights and providing you with the best possible defense.

What is a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

A criminal defense lawyer is a legal professional who provides legal representation to individuals or entities facing criminal charges.

These attorneys are responsible for defending their clients in court, advising them on the law and strategies of their case, handling negotiations with prosecutors and other officials, gathering evidence, and developing an effective defense strategy.

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.

Criminal defense attorneys are an integral part of any criminal proceedings, as they are responsible for protecting the rights of their clients while working towards achieving a just outcome.

They play an important role in ensuring fairness in all aspects of the criminal justice system. Whether you are facing charges or seeking to prove your innocence, it’s important to work with an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can help you fight for the best possible resolution in court.

What should I do if I am facing criminal charges?

If you are facing criminal charges, it is important to seek the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer immediately. They can assess your case, explain your legal options, and develop an effective defense strategy. It is crucial to avoid speaking to law enforcement or providing any statements without the presence of your lawyer.

Can a criminal defense lawyer help in getting charges reduced or dismissed?

Yes, a skilled criminal defense lawyer can work towards getting charges reduced or dismissed. They can negotiate with prosecutors, present strong evidence in your favor, challenge the legality of the evidence, and identify any violations of your constitutional rights. Their goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
