What is a Defense Lawyer?
When you're going to be tried for a crime, you have two major options for legal representation:
- A criminal defense lawyer
- A public defender
You may remember hearing upon your arrest, as part of your rights, "If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you." This is an option you'll want to avoid if you can. This court-appointed attorney is called a public defender, and they are usually not as motivated to fight for you as a criminal defense lawyer, also known as a criminal lawyer or defense lawyer. You're also not guaranteed someone very experienced or qualified.
It may seem too costly to hire a private defense attorney at first consideration, but how much is a favorable verdict really worth? A lot more than the cost of hiring an expert. At the Law Office of Adam Tavitas, we provide consultations for free to help minimize costs.
