When you stand accused of breaking the law, you can face months or years in jail, heavy fines, and other serious penalties that can significantly impact your life. In addition to serving time and effectively losing a portion of your life to incarceration, you may find it difficult to find a good job after your release. You may be unable to obtain certain professional licenses and can face a future defined by a criminal record in spite of your efforts to improve your life!

What Is The Difference Between A Lawyer And A Defense Attorney?

The difference between a lawyer and a defense attorney is understanding how a lawyer practices the law and supports clients in court. A defense attorney is known as an advocate of the law when supporting their client with various defensive legal processes in and out of the courtroom.

  • An arrest on suspicion of committing a crime: If you have been taken into custody, the most important thing to do is exercise your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney. We can get involved immediately after your arrest to protect your interests.
  • If you’ve already been charged with a crime: We can work to secure your release for the duration of the case and can begin building a case to support your innocence – or to negotiate with the prosecution for a reduced sentence.
  • If you’ve already been convicted: One of the skilled Atlanta criminal defense lawyers at our firm can help you file an appeal. You can get a second chance at justice.
  • If you have been released on probation: Our criminal defense attorneys can represent your interests to help you avoid facing the full term of your original sentence.
