What Does Your Lawyer Do For You?

1) Explain exactly what all those legal papers are saying
2) Tell you what all the consequences are of any legal decision you make.
3) Advise you so that you make the best decision possible.
4) Speak for you in court.
5) Research, write, & argue legal motions when your rights have been violated.
6) Negotiate with District Attorneys and Judges to try to settle your case.
7) Collect evidence to help prepare your defense.
8) Prepare and present your case to a jury in trial.
9) Argue your side of things to the judge.

Lawyers, especially Criminal Lawyers, are often very busy, as criminal law requires many court appearances and a great deal of time is spent out of the office. Your attorney has other clients, with other court dates. If you call and he is not in, please leave a message. It’s impossible to know when court will be finished and when your attorney will return to the office. Let him call you back when he gets back. Just make sure to leave a number where he can reach you.

Your lawyer is forbidden by law to lie to the court or any other judicial officer, which includes other lawyers.
Your lawyer cannot make up evidence or defenses, or make up fake laws.
Your lawyer cannot file legal motions that are not supported by the law.
Your lawyer cannot hide or destroy evidence.
Your lawyer cannot participate in any illegal activities, or help you do anything illegal.
Your lawyer must tell the police if he knows that someone is going to be hurt or killed.

What Your Lawyer Most Certainly CAN Do

Argue to the judge, district attorney, and jury anything that is reasonable from the evidence (unless he knows that it is absolutely not true).
Defend a person he knows to be guilty. Keep your secrets confidential, ensuring that the police and district attorney cannot use them against you.
