What Does a Defense Attorney Do? 

A criminal defense attorney serves a vital role in the legal system by providing legal representation and advocating for individuals accused of committing crimes. Here's a detailed breakdown of what a criminal defense attorney does:

  • Case Evaluation: The attorney begins by thoroughly reviewing the details of the case, including evidence, witness statements, police reports, and any available documentation. This evaluation helps them understand the strengths and weaknesses of the case.
  • Legal Research: Criminal defense attorneys conduct extensive legal research to identify relevant laws, precedents, and regulations that may apply to their client's case. This research forms the basis for building a strong defense strategy.
  • Defense Strategy: Based on their analysis and legal research, defense attorneys craft a tailored defense strategy. This strategy outlines the approach they will take to protect their client's rights and achieve the best possible legal outcome.
  • Client Consultation: Attorneys provide counsel to their clients, explaining the legal process, potential consequences, and options.
  • Negotiation: Defense attorneys engage in negotiations with the prosecution. They aim to secure favorable outcomes for their clients, including reducing charges, seeking alternative resolutions, or negotiating sentencing recommendations when possible.
  • Courtroom Advocacy: If the case goes to trial, defense attorneys serve as dedicated advocates for their clients in the courtroom. They present evidence, cross-examine witnesses, and make legal arguments to defend their clients' innocence or minimize the severity of charges.
  • Post-Conviction Support: Even after a conviction, the role of a defense attorney continues. An attorney may assist with sentencing hearings, appeals, or efforts to have a conviction expunged from the client's record.
  • Protection of Rights: Throughout the legal process, defense attorneys ensure that their clients' constitutional rights are upheld. This includes safeguarding against illegal searches and seizures, ensuring the right to remain silent, and advocating for a fair trial.

In essence, a criminal defense attorney's role is multifaceted, encompassing legal expertise, strategic planning, courtroom advocacy, and support to protect their clients' rights and interests throughout the criminal justice process.

Real Reviews From Real Clients

    "Definitely recommend him! His pricing is reasonable as well!"
    Adam Tavitas got my probation dismissed after a probation revocation. He even took on all my other cases of driving without a license on after I hired him! Definitely recommend him! His pricing is reasonable as well!

    "Can't Say Enough Good Things"
    Adam has been upfront and direct with me about possible outcomes but never stopped working for the best possible outcome.

    "He got the charges reduced, great communication, and cares about the case he is taking on."
    He got the charges reduced, great communication, and cares about the case he is taking on. Never had to talk to a receptionist and wait on a call back since he gave his personal work phone number (being able to text/call) and got back as soon as he was able to. Very happy we came across him, not many compassionate lawyers out here that cares like he does. Will definitely recommend and hire again if needed!

    "A friend recommended Adam Tavitas. I could not be more happy about that recommendation."
    Needed help with a case in Porter County Indiana. Being out of state I was a bit worried about having to return for court. A friend recommended Adam Tavitas. I could not be more happy about that recommendation. Adam responded to my call immediately, explained my options and provided easy payment options. The resolution of the case was my biggest concern and that worked out very well. Adam is the complete package, Responsive, Professional and cost effective. Hopefully I never need his help again but I definitely will keep his contact information for future issues. Thanks Adam!
