If you have been accused of a crime, you know how terrifying it is to face the possibility of going to jail. The function of a defense lawyer is to represent anyone accused of committing a crime to the best of their abilities.  

A criminal defense attorney has many jobs. Questioning a witness in court is only a small part of his duties. The primary duty of a defense lawyer is to spend crucial time on a case to gather as much information as possible and to question valuable witnesses.  

In fact, a lawyer does not need to step into a courtroom to assist you in your case, because their job is to negotiate with prosecutors, often resulting in reduced charges or lesser sentences for their clients.  

They also give their clients an objective opinion and tell them what is likely to happen.  This is very important for defendants trying to decide whether to accept or reject a plea bargain offer from the prosecutor.

When facing the possibility of having criminal charges brought against you, the prospect of finding the right lawyer may become overwhelming.  If the police arrest you, talking to a criminal defense attorney is the most important thing you do, as soon as possible.  

It is an urgent priority, so that the lawyer can arrange for bail, and get you out of prison.  The lawyer will also provide you with information about what will happen in the days ahead.

Not everyone can afford to hire a private attorney to represent him or her in a criminal case.  For those who cannot afford to hire a lawyer, a public defender will be assigned to handle their case, because they have the right to have adequate representation when facing a criminal charge.
