The criminal defense system is a complex system that should not be navigated alone. Your lawyer is your advocate through this system. There are two types of criminal defense attorneys, court-appointed (government paid) and private (hired by the defendant). You also can represent yourself “pro se” in a criminal defense case. Criminal defense lawyers will help you by researching your case and negotiating on your behalf. They will examine witnesses and the prosecutor’s case. They will assist you with looking at the proposed sentences and gather evidence. Having a criminal defense attorney is a worthwhile investment that will help you get the best outcomes in your criminal case.
