Defense Lawyer



1. A defense lawyer is hired when you are convicted of a crime.

True
Whether you are under investigation or already convicted of a crime, a defense lawyer can help you stay out of jail. Being convicted of a crime can result in serious legal consequences, and a professional can help prevent the consequences. When looking for proper legal assistance, it is important to find one with a strong history of winning criminal cases. The more experience of winning cases, the better chance of not being convicted of a crime.


2. A defense attorney is specialized in criminal law.

True
Since defense attorneys deal with people convicted with a crime, they must be specialized in all aspects of criminal law. Examples of cases that handled include drug crimes, abuse crimes, corporate crimes and more. To succeed in a defense case, it is critical that the person be familiar with the criminal laws of their states. Most states have different laws, rules and regulations on how they enforce things.


3. A defense lawyer is hard to find.

False
It is very easy to find help online. In addition, asking friends and family members may lead to more professionals to pick from. Websites often allow you to fill out information about your specific case or need, including your state. The site will then match you with the best list of people so you can compare them online.


4. A defense attorney is different from a criminal attorney.

False
Both are basically the same thing. However, rather than looking to prove someone guilty, a defense attorney specifically attempts to prove someone innocent.


5. It is wise to seek help from a defense lawyer.

True
Proverbs 12:15 - The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
