In the field of criminal law, while it does not always appear to be so, every individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Consequently, when a person is accused of a crime, he or she has a right to present a defense for the purpose of proving his or her innocence. Under the law, the accused also has a right to legal counsel who will represent and protect his or her legal rights.

That is the perfect world version of what the law says. The reality is that the legal system is often influenced by other factors, such as:

  • Overzealous prosecutors who are often more concerned about their conviction rate than whether the accused may actually be innocent. Many prosecutors have aspirations to be given high profile criminal trial cases, to one day be a District Attorney or Attorney General, or to enter into private practice with instant name recognition. All of these scenarios hinge on high conviction rates.
  • Political Pressure. District Attorneys and State Attorney Generals are under tremendous political pressure to lower crime rates and maintain high conviction rates.
  • Public Defenders. It is no secret that public defenders are undermanned and overworked. Public defenders often do not have the time and resources to provide the aggressive and detailed representation as that of a private practice criminal defense attorney or law firm. Many defendants end up taking plea deals or are convicted because the limitations placed on their public defender to aggressively protect them, as well as the mindset of "move on to the next case" by their superiors.

When accused and charged with a crime, one of the most important things you can do is seek the legal advice and representation of professional legal counsel. When you hire a criminal defense attorney to represent you, your attorney's duty is to aggressively and zealously protect your legal rights using every legal resource available under the law. You do not want a criminal defense lawyer that takes shortcuts, doesn't remember your name, or pushes to get you to take a plea deal in the first five minutes.
