What is Criminal Defense?

Criminal Defense affords legal protections to persons who have been accused of committing a crime. Prosecution teams, the District Attorney’s Office and Police agencies have unlimited resources at their disposal which can skew a case heavily in their favor.

With Lawyer One, we balance the scales to bring a proper and adequate defense to bring a level playing field to court. Additionally, criminal defense attorneys research facts, investigate the case against their clients, and try to negotiate deals with prosecutors. These deals may include reduced bail, reduced charges, and reduced sentences. In many circumstances, a lawyer may be able to work out a plea bargain. A plea bargain is a compromise. Usually, someone will plead guilty to a lesser crime, and the prosecutor will recommend a lesser sentence to the judge. Lawyer One attorneys have the knowledge and expertise to utilize these resources in most cases.


Lawyer One will be ready no matter how along in the process you are, the sooner you contact us the better your result, here is how typically the stages of prosecution occur:

  • Given a written notice of arraignment, which is also known as a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) and can lead to an earlier release;
  • Being booked prior to arraignment, which usually occurs within 24 hours of arrest;
  • Required to attend a pretrial interview, where a court officer will attempt to gather information about the case, including whether the accused will be represented by a public defender or a privately retained attorney;
  • Being arraigned, which constitutes an accused’s first official court appearance, where he or she will be given notice of the charges and the judge will set bail, release the individual, or remand him or her into custody; and
  • At trial, which must take place within a certain time frame, usually six months for felony trials and between 60 and 90 days for misdemeanor charges.
