What is Criminal Defense?

Criminal defense lawyers, also known as criminal lawyers and public defenders, defend individuals, organizations and entities that have been charged with a crime. Criminal defense attorneys handle a broad class of criminal cases, ranging from sex crimes, domestic violence crimes, violent crimes and drug crimes to driving under the influence (also known as a DUI or DWI), theft, embezzlement and fraud.

A criminal defense lawyer fulfills many important roles during the course of a criminal case. He or she is is responsible for defending a person who is charged with a crime. He or she speaks on the client’s behalf.
