Law exists to protect the people from unwarranted abuse and criminal
wrongdoings. It is equally possible for an innocent as well as a guilty
person to get caught in this net. The basic premise of law essentially
is that a person is presumed to be innocent unless proven guilty.
However, sometimes, even innocent people can have a brush in with law
and at such a time, it is important to have someone on your side that is
not only knowledgeable in these matters but also has the experience and
the expertise that you need to get out of your ‘situation.’
Understanding criminal defense
You have all heard of the term criminal defense. It comes into play
when someone is charged with having committed a crime. The person so
charged is always looking for a way to get the charges negated; and for
this he approaches the best defense attorney who acts in multiple
capacities of a friend, an attorney and a confidant; and helps think of
and point out elements that can negate the crime you are charged with.
