What Does a Criminal Lawyer Do?

A criminal defense lawyer is a legal professional who represents individuals charged with a crime, from DUI and theft to sex crimes and violent crimes. Their job includes examining any evidence presented by the prosecution, interviewing witnesses, making legal arguments in court, and advocating for their client throughout all phases of the criminal process.

A criminal defense attorney’s first priority is to make sure that their client’s rights are protected inside and outside the courtroom, from the start of the case until the conclusion. They may review police reports to identify errors or inconsistencies, challenge unconstitutional searches and seizures, negotiate plea deals with prosecutors if it is in their client’s best interest, and provide guidance about how best to handle the case.

The ultimate goal of a criminal defense attorney is to get the best possible outcome for their client. This may mean seeking a dismissal of the charges, a reduced sentence, or even an acquittal at trial. No matter what the outcome, our Long Island criminal lawyer is committed to providing the highest quality representation and support to our clients need during this trying time.
