What Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Do?
As your criminal defense lawyers, our legal team is there to help you navigate the legal system every step of the way. From arrest to trial, our lawyers will work with you to build a solid defense case and negotiate with prosecutors or advocate for you before a judge.
There are many things a criminal defense attorney on our team can do, including the following:
- Investigating your case. We will thoroughly examine every aspect of the case against you, including police evidence, witness statements, and your own testimony.
- Developing a solid legal approach. Once we understand all the facts of your case, we can begin building a path forward. This could include negotiations, plea deals, or going to trial.
- Negotiating with the prosecution. In some instances, the best way to reduce the penalties against you is by accepting a plea bargain from the court. Our lawyers will advocate for your rights in front of prosecutors to minimize the penalties against you.
- Defending you before a judge. If your case goes to trial, our team will work tirelessly to gather evidence in your defense and present it before a judge. We always aim to get your case dismissed or get a not-guilty verdict in court.
- Submitting an appeal for a conviction. If you are convicted at trial, our team can help you navigate the appeals process. If you were convicted unlawfully, there is a chance your case could go back to court.

How Soon Should I Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?
It’s ideal to hire a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you learn you are under investigation or facing charges. Even if you have not been arrested or formally charged, talking to law enforcement without a lawyer present is not advisable. Police officers will often ask to speak to individuals under investigation to glean information and build a case against them. Because law enforcement is allowed to use anything you say against you in court, they may use innocuous or offhand statements you make to prove your guilt before a judge.
Before talking to law enforcement, reach out to our team today. We will strategize with you beforehand and accompany you during your conversation to avoid implicating yourself in any way. If you’ve already talked to law enforcement on your own or have been charged with a crime, reach out to our team immediately.
How Would a Criminal Conviction Affect My Life?
Paying hefty fines and spending time in jail or prison are almost always options when facing criminal charges. However, there are other consequences you may face after being criminally convicted that may impact your life for years to come.
Many individuals with a criminal record find it difficult to secure housing because landlords are hesitant to rent to those with a criminal conviction. Similarly, you may find it difficult to get a job because some employers will not hire anyone with a criminal record. Certain public benefits may be off-limits to you, and after some felony convictions, you will no longer be able to own or operate a firearm. If you are concerned about the penalties you are facing, contact our team today for representation.
Should I Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?

An inexperienced criminal defense attorney won’t have the skills or the knowledge needed to defend your rights and reduce or remove the penalties you are facing. At Flanary Law Firm, PLLC, we are dedicated to using our experience to advocate for you and get the outcome you deserve.
