When an individual is charged with a crime and arrested, they will need the help of an expert defense lawyer. Defense lawyers have the legal knowledge and practical experience in getting cases dismissed for a variety of reasons. This video will explain some defense lawyer tactics used to clear defendants of wrongdoing.
The defense lawyer’s adversary is the prosecution lawyer. Prosecutors review evidence given to them by law enforcement and choose charges to file against the defendant. The defense lawyer will then review the evidence and see if there are any inconsistencies.
The prosecution needs to prove their case beyond the shadow of reasonable doubt. This is a high bar for conviction, and defense attorneys make it their business to cast doubt on the evidence. Perhaps the evidence was obtained in an illegal manner by law enforcement. The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unlawful search and seizure, and the defense attorney will often invoke this to get evidence dismissed.
If you have criminal charges being brought against you, it’s important to work with a defense attorney with a track record of clearing charges. It’s not a guarantee that the charges will be dropped, but they may be reduced substantially. For more information, check out the video in the link above.
