The Role of a Defense Attorney

While many factors can determine the outcome of a criminal charge, the most important is the quality of a defendant’s legal counsel. An attorney with wide-ranging experience knows how to deal with investigators and prosecutors. They could navigate the complexities of the criminal charges to identify the most effective and meaningful way to build a defense.

A lawyer could also perform their own investigation into the facts and evidence upon which a charge is based. Other factors that may affect the outcome of a criminal case include the details of the alleged offense, whether the accused has a criminal history, and the nature of the prosecution’s evidence.

A seasoned attorney takes the helm and guides their client through the relevant legal processes while working to reduce charges, negotiate a plea deal, or fight the charges in court. A dedicated legal professional serving  Waldorf and Southern Maryland understands how all these variables can affect the potential outcome of a criminal case and could work to build the best defense strategy.
