What is a Defense Attorney?

We know that the legal system can be difficult to navigate. It can be paralyzing to know where to begin, who to contact, or when to contact/obtain legal services when we are in the midst of a legal circumstance, or even a potential legal circumstance. We want you to know that the sooner you seek legal advice, the better.

Everyone is entitled to a vigorous legal defense in the United States, and in most cases, this defense is headed up by an experienced Defense Attorney. By definition, a Defense Attorney is an attorney that represents a defendant in court proceedings, when one has been accused of a crime from a misdemeanor to a felony.

The normal order of events for seeking representation are; Some form of incident happens, the police are called, and the investigation happens. The investigation can range from 10 minutes on the scene, where the police find that the evidence is clear and an arrest is made on the spot, or the investigation can take weeks to months for the warrants/arrest to occur. Once you have been arrested, or are made aware of warrants for your arrest, you would contact Bratcher Martin, or your choice of firm in your area, for representation.

Your Defense Attorney will also offer other services, such as;

-Negotiating plea deals with the prosecution in an attempt to get charges resolved quickly and efficiently.

-Argue bail on your behalf.

-If the plea bargain process fails, or isn’t an option, your Defense Attorney will prepare to represent you in court.

-Your Defense Attorney’s job is to protect your rights, provide zealous representation throughout the legal process, and to provide expert legal strategy at trial.

We encourage you to research Defense Attorneys near you if you find yourself in any type of legal situation. If you are in the Northwest Georgia/Atlanta area, please reach out to us at www.bratchermatin.com to set up a consultation.
