The major duties of criminal lawyer include collecting information about the case, evaluating the evidence and investigating the case. Criminal trial attorneys work as partners to criminal defense attorney.

        The criminal defense attorneys are responsible for providing criminal defense to the clients. They collect the evidence that may prove helpful in defending the client. They are employees of the court. Some of them also take up private practice.

        Criminal attorneys can either be appointed by the court or directly by the client. Once hired, the criminal attorney first discusses the case with the client. The attorney tries to figure out what exactly happened and visualizes the case as per the client’s view of crime. The criminal lawyer represents the client in the court throughout the process of criminal trial.

For instance, when charged of DUI, it is best to choose the lawyer who has enough experience in providing the necessary defense for such cases.

        Once you decide to hire, have a clear talk with the attorney. Describe your case in detail so that the lawyer can collect as much information as possible. Also let them know of evidences, if any that can be helpful in proving you right. Inquire about the fees and also the advance payment needs to be made. One must also ask the lawyer if the lead attorney will be fighting the case or if an associate would do it.

        One faces a bad time when charged of crime. By hiring a good criminal lawyer, one can hope to get out of the charged of crime.
