The primary role of a criminal lawyer is to represent my defendant in the criminal court system. This encompasses arraignments, pretrial hearings, settlement conferences, trials and sentence hearings. I defend adults and juveniles at the federal, state and local level. Throughout the criminal process as criminal lawyers I offer legal counsel to my clients that would be in their best interests. As a criminal lawyer my extensive knowledge of the law helps me safeguard my client’s constitutional rights. There is a vast amount of time spent gathering evidence like police reports, eyewitness testimonies and any other information pertinent to the case. As a result, as a criminal lawyer I utilize the expertise of paralegals, private investigators, litigation consultants and others to assist me.
