Why Hire Me?
A criminal lawyer, known as a defense attorney, is a specialized lawyer. More often than not these lawyers are referred to as the backbone of the legal field due to their roles in a large variety of cases. These specialized lawyers have a hand in defending organizations and individuals who have been charged with a crime. A criminal lawyer can handle a huge variety of cases from domestic violence to a DUI. While many criminal lawyers specialize in a specific field, handling a wide variety of cases is within the bounds of each.
The experience and education of a criminal lawyer is not unlike other lawyers. It doesn’t matter if the criminal lawyer is in Fairfax, Virginia or Los Angeles, California, each lawyer must go to school for a law degree and pass the designated bar examination in their specific state in order to practice law. If a lawyer intends to practice in another state then he or she must go to said state and pass the bar examination there.
Being a criminal lawyer comes with a variety of different skills which are needed to help set the record straight on their client’s behalf. A criminal lawyer will be the first to tell you that all cases are different no matter how similar they might look on the outside. This means honing skills and gaining experience is a hugely important tool for any criminal lawyer. The role of a lawyer is to argue the case for their client. That means persuading a jury to see their evidence and find the client not guilty of the charges filed against him or her. Developing a rapport with clients and having excellent interpersonal communication skills are a huge priority for a criminal lawyer.
