What Does a Criminal Defense Lawyer Do?

Following an arrest, a Rhode Island criminal lawyer will play a pivotal role in helping you navigate the complex legal landscape. They understand the intricate laws, procedures, and possible defenses pertinent to your case. Their knowledge and experience can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case, helping to reduce charges and penalties, or even achieving an acquittal.

Some of the key services provided by a criminal defense attorney include:

  • Representation in Court: Attorneys accompany their clients in court, presenting their defense and advocating for their rights.
  • Legal Consultation: They offer crucial legal advice to help clients understand their charges and the potential outcomes of their case.
  • Plea Bargaining: Criminal defense attorneys negotiate with prosecutors to reduce charges or penalties.
  • Investigation: They conduct thorough investigations to build a strong defense, including gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and challenging any evidence obtained illegally.
  • Support During Police Interviews: Attorneys guide their clients during police interviews to ensure they don't unintentionally incriminate themselves.
  • Case Preparation: From organizing evidence to strategizing a defense, attorneys prepare comprehensively for trial.
  • Sentencing Advocacy: Rhode Island criminal attorneys advocate for lighter sentencing or alternative rehabilitation programs.

Remember, a skilled Rhode Island criminal defense attorney can be the difference between a reduced plea bargain or a jail sentence.
