Why you should exercise your right to a criminal defense attorney

Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court required that anyone being placed under arrest must be informed of his or her legal rights, most Americans – including those who have never been charged with a crime – are aware that in any criminal prosecution the defendant has the right to an attorney.

This right is more than a formality or a technicality. There are good reasons why if you find yourself facing criminal charges you will want to have a good criminal defense law firm to advocate on your behalf.

A good defense against accusations of having committed a crime involves more than simple denials or rigorous cross-examination of prosecution witnesses. Many times to prepare the most effective defense for the accused it will be necessary for his or her attorney to engage in extensive investigation and preparation before a trial date is ever set.

This can involve forensic investigation, acquiring and analyzing records, interviewing witnesses, and thoroughly examining the prosecution's case for any possible weaknesses.

All of this means that an experienced criminal defense attorney seldom operates as a single individual, but more often as a member of a team which may include multiple attorneys as well as non-lawyer experts.

Diligent pretrial preparation is essential to effectively negotiate with the prosecution to have charges dropped or reduced, and is equally important for the conduct of an effective defense at trial.

At Escobar & Associates we are well-versed in how to prepare a defense in depth for our clients, to make sure that they have the best possible chance before trial and during it if need be to secure a fair outcome.
