What Do Defense Attorneys Do?
After getting arrested for or charged with a crime, one of the most important steps is to obtain legal counsel from a private criminal defense attorney or a court-appointed public defender. Since the average person does not have extensive knowledge of federal or state criminal law or the criminal justice process, a defense lawyer is responsible for representing those facing either a misdemeanor or felony offense – no matter how serious.
In general, criminal defense attorneys are committed to do all the following on behalf of their clients:
- Educate clients on their rights
- Investigate the charges against their clients
- Gather evidence
- Research the facts of the case
- Examine witnesses
- Analyze the prosecutor’s case
- Review probable cause protocols, as well as search and seizure procedures
- Determine if the police or prosecution violated their clients’ rights
- File motions in court to enter new evidence or exclude evidence that was improperly obtained or otherwise unfit for trial
- Hire expert witnesses who can validate the defense’s evidence
- Fights for their clients during the trial
- If a not-guilty verdict is not possible, try to negotiate a plea agreement—which includes reduced charges or sentences—with the prosecution
At The Law Office of Jay Granberry, our Brazos County criminal defense attorney can guide you through the complexities of the criminal justice system and protect your rights, reputation, and freedom from start to finish. We provide all our clients with compassionate and personalized legal representation during difficult times.
Criminal Process in Texas
The criminal process in Texas can be divided into several stages, starting with the initial investigation and ending with sentencing. The investigation phase involves gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and making an arrest if probable cause is established. After the arrest, the defendant is brought before a judge for an initial appearance, where the charges are read and bail is set. The next stage is the pre-trial phase, where the prosecution and defense exchange evidence and negotiate plea bargains. If a plea agreement is not reached, the case proceeds to trial. The trial involves presenting evidence and arguments to a judge or jury, and the defendant is either found guilty or not guilty. If found guilty, the defendant is sentenced, and the case may be appealed.
In Texas, criminal cases can be complicated, and it is essential to have an experienced Brazos County criminal defense attorney on your side to protect your rights and ensure a fair trial. With the right legal representation, defendants can navigate the criminal justice system and achieve the best possible outcome in their case. If you have been charged with a crime in Texas, seeking legal advice as soon as possible is important to protect your rights and avoid harsh penalties.
