The very heart of criminal defense relies upon presenting the most robust, zealous defense possible for the accused. Many people are unaware of their basic rights, and it’s in the best interest of police and prosecutors that you never become aware of those rights. Advising you of your rights and letting you know when to use them goes to the very heart of criminal defense.

A criminal defense lawyer will not only understand the letter of the law, but the heart and purpose of each relevant law. The primary job of a criminal defense lawyer is to fight for you at all costs within the law, to maximize your liberty interest by making sure that you get the best defense possible.
