Criminal defense: What to expect with an attorney's help

A good criminal defense attorney has many strategies that can help you defend yourself effectively. Generally speaking, there are a few ways to defend yourself, but they all fall into the same categories. You either are claiming to be innocent or not. If not, you're looking to explain yourself and actions in a way that will lead to little or no punishment.

A smart defense attorney builds a strong story in defense of the defendant. This story is built on the truths of the case while placing the defendant in a good light. For example, while the prosecution may accuse a person of murder, the defense may paint a picture of someone fighting to protect him or herself and those he or she loves.

Even if you did commit a crime, a good defense can help you avoid facing the maximum penalties. Creating a story that shows you in a good light helps the judge and jury understand you and have compassion for your situation.

Your attorney will help you, so that you can best present yourself in a positive light. One way to do this is through mock interviews where you learn the defense theory and learn what to say or not to say in court. Another way is by having you write down what happened from your own point of view, so that you can stick to that single story and series of events.

An attorneys help does make a difference for many. Criminal cases are challenging, but with the right help in place, you can work toward a positive outcome.
