Here are some of the functions performed by a criminal lawyer. As well as its definition and other aspects to consider after you hire their services.

What does a criminal lawyer do?

Criminal defense attorneys in Los Angeles specialize in the legal representation of people accused of a criminal offense. They are in charge of defending and representing their clients before a court during a judicial process. 

There are two ways to hire criminal defense attorneys:

  1. Directly by the accused himself; or 
  2. By assigning a public defender by the court.

There are criminal lawyers who act as public defenders and are paid by the state (public defender’s office). But there are also private trial attorneys like those at Lluis Law who work for the client. 

Of course, private lawyers serve the interests of whoever hires them. That is why they are more ingrained with cases and strive to win them. While for the public defender the client can be just one more.

What happens after you hire the criminal lawyer?

Once the services of the criminal lawyer have been hired, a process that consists of the following steps begins:

1. Investigation of the case:

  • Ask the relevant questions of the accused to learn details of the case. In this way you can determine if you are qualified to take charge of the judicial process. 
  • Analyze the most appropriate strategies to solve the case. No case is similar to another, therefore, it requires appropriate strategies according to the charges.
  • Interview the police to learn first-hand about the police procedures used in the procedure. Likewise, know the evidence collected by the police against the client and the charges brought against him.
  • In this part of the investigation, witnesses are also included, who are an essential element to obtain details. 
  • Incorporate evidence and useful information obtained through witnesses, the police, relatives of the victims or experts. As irrelevant as it may seem, it could help build the case’s defense argument.

The defense attorney has the full right to review the prosecution’s case against his client. Even before it is presented to the jury. The objective is to find errors in the judicial procedures and later refute the arguments of the prosecution.

2. Analysis of the evidence

This is a very important part of the criminal case preparation process. The lawyer proceeds to:

  • Analyze the evidence against the client. This allows you to draw a suitable line of work and defense strategy. 
  • Promote various tests independently to defend the accused, through experts and witnesses.

3. Permanent communication with the client

The private criminal lawyer has the obligation to keep his client informed about the judicial process and the development of the case. Consequently, dynamic and reputable lawyers should be hired, who do not let the case drift.

Good and ongoing attorney-client communication is essential to winning a case. Along with the confidential nature of the attorney-client conversations. In addition to the timely communication of the possible consequences of an action for the defendant.

4. Selection of the jury

The criminal defense attorney must also be present during the jury selection process. 

This allows to verify if any of the members of the jury have prejudices or preconceptions against the accused that could harm the case.

5. Negotiation

It is common for the criminal defense attorney to discuss the case with the prosecution during a trial. As well as negotiating with the alleged victims a possible agreement in favor of the client. 

Negotiations or agreements allow for a reduction in charges or punishment for the accused.

6. Active participation in tests

During the trial, the criminal defense attorney must do his best to get his client released. If it is not possible due to the evidence against you, then fight for procedural benefits.

This work includes, in addition to private research:

  • Carry out administrative proceedings in court.
  • Study in depth the evidence presented by the prosecution.
  • Examine the prosecution’s witnesses and promote your own witnesses. 

The purpose is to convince the jury of the client’s innocence and reject the charges brought by the prosecution.

7. Judgment

At the time the judge passes judgment, the defense attorney could also represent the client, if the client is physically or emotionally impeded from being present in the courtroom. 

In this phase, the lawyer could help his client in several ways:

  • Try to convince the jury or judge to lower the prison sentence; or 
  • Present alternatives to sentencing to avoid incarceration.
