PostSubject: Criminal Law Lawyer Do?   Wed Sep 25, 2013 11:12 am

Hello,

A criminal law lawyer may either represent a person who has been accused of a crime or the government in prosecuting the accused. In a typical criminal case, a defense lawyer represents the defendant while an opposing attorney, called a prosecutor, stands in for the government. A criminal law lawyer who practices defense law can wear a number of different hats – from defending a person against a speeding ticket charge to advocating for an alleged criminal during a murder trial. Prosecutors, on the other hand, are responsible for representing the government in cases like a speeding charge or murder trial.

A criminal law lawyer can work for the government or a private law firm, or as a solo practitioner. Criminal defense attorneys who are hired by the government to represent defendants are often called public defenders. In some countries, a public defender is provided to a defendant, who cannot afford to hire an attorney, at no charge.

One of the primary tasks of a criminal law lawyer is to advocate for his or her clients. In order to effectively do this, an attorney may need to put aside his or her personal opinion about a case. For example, a criminal defense attorney must sincerely champion his or her client's cause regardless of whether the attorney actually thinks the client is guilty or innocent.
