What Does A Criminal Defense Lawyer Do?

The Role Of A Criminal Defense Lawyer

Deciding to represent yourself in your criminal defense cases can be one of the biggest mistakes you can make in your case. Thankfully, you can rely on the protection of a lawyer who can defend your rights, future and freedom. If you are facing criminal charges, it is important to understand why you need a criminal defense attorney.

Understanding the role of a criminal defense lawyer is crucial when facing the daunting prospect of criminal charges. At O'Donnell, Weiss & Mattei, P.C., we are dedicated to safeguarding your rights and ensuring a favorable outcome for your case. We stand by the people of Southeast Pennsylvania, offering expert legal guidance every step of the way. When you come to us for help, you deserve to know exactly what you can expect from your defense lawyer.

Our Defense Process

A key aspect of a criminal defense lawyer’s job is to act as a negotiator. We are skilled in the art of negotiation, often working to reduce charges, lessen penalties, or even secure alternatives to incarceration. We understand the importance of a well-crafted deal and are committed to fighting for terms that serve your best interests.

However, not every case can be won through negotiation. When we need to prepare a defense strategy to protect our clients, we employ all possible methods of defending them. We review every detail in the cases we take to locate possible weaknesses in the charges our clients face to find grounds for a defense. Once we have identified this vulnerability, we attack it with everything we have.

As we guide you through the defense process, we will also assist you in any way we can, including by advising you about your rights, explaining the details of your case, and resolving your case as fast as we can without sacrificing the quality of our representation. We are here to keep you informed and ready for every step of your defense.
