How a Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Help

If you have been accused of a crime, you have certain rights that must be honored. For example, you have the right to a trial by jury. Possibly the most important of these assurances is your right to have an attorney to represent you and offer legal counsel throughout the case.

What Does a Defense Attorney Do?

Being accused of a crime can be a very frightening and confusing event. A good defense lawyer can do a number of things that will help you understand the situation and defend your rights:

  • Explain the legal process and the events that you will experience
  • Investigate the evidence of the case
  • Cross-examine witnesses
  • Present your case
  • Negotiate plea bargains
  • Explain the sentencing process

A criminal trial is often a complex and detailed event; the right to legal counsel assures that defendants have the chance to protect their rights.
