What Is a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

A criminal defense lawyer is a lawyer who specializes in the defense of individuals and businesses charged with criminal activity. A criminal defense lawyer can be hired to represent a defendant in court, or they may be retained by the accused person prior to any charges being filed.

In either case, their job is to make sure that their client’s rights are protected and to provide them with the best possible defense given the circumstances of their case.

Scott C Thomas, a leading criminal defense lawyer in Orange County, achieves the best possible outcome for his clients by:

  • Reviewing the evidence and facts of their case to identify any potential legal defenses
  • Investigating the alleged crime and interviewing witnesses
  • Mounting a vigorous defense in court, if the case goes to trial
  • Negotiating with prosecutors to get charges reduced or dismissed
  • Working with prosecutors to negotiate a plea bargain, if appropriate
  • Appealing a conviction, if necessary

Every case is different, and the best possible outcome will depend on the specific facts and circumstances of your case.
