What Is a Defense Attorney?

A defense attorney, also known as a defense lawyer or criminal defense attorney, is a legal professional who specializes in representing individuals or organizations accused of committing a crime. Their primary role is to advocate for the rights and interests of their clients within the criminal justice system. 

Here are some key aspects of what a defense attorney does:

  • Legal representation
  • Case assessment
  • Legal advice
  • Court representation and negotiation
  • Defenses
  • Protecting Rights
  • Investigation
  • Sentencing Advocacy
  • Client Support

It's important to note that defense attorneys play a crucial role in the criminal justice system by ensuring that individuals accused of crimes receive a fair and impartial trial and that their rights are protected. They do not make judgments about the guilt or innocence of their clients but rather work to uphold the principles of due process and the right to a legal defense.
