What Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Do?

In a criminal case, a criminal defense lawyer is committed to protecting the rights of their client. They provide legal advice and help their clients better understand the consequences of the alleged offense, while also working to minimize punishment or secure an acquittal.

Criminal defense attorneys have many roles, including interviewing witnesses, analyzing evidence, filing motions, preparing opening statements, introducing evidence at trial and making closing arguments. The defense involves investigating and challenging the prosecution’s evidence, as well as finding any legal loopholes that could potentially help their case.

Criminal defense lawyers may also negotiate with prosecutors in order to reach an acceptable plea agreement to have their client’s charges or penalties reduced or even dismissed. An attorney may also work to create alternative sentencing arrangements, if their client is facing jail time or other penalties.

Ultimately, the goal of a criminal defense attorney is to help their clients obtain the most favorable outcome in their cases.

Criminal Charges & Your Immigration Status

As an immigrant who became a US citizen at age 29, our attorney deeply understands the concerns and issues that green card holders face in the wake of a criminal charge. But like all Americans, green card holders deserve a fair chance at resolving their criminal charges, especially when their immigration status could be at stake. These clients are not alone.

Attorney Albert Guadagno takes a personable approach, asking clients to bring their children of all ages to our law firm to translate for their parents if needed. Albert knows what it’s like for children to help their parents in various capacities because he had these adult-like responsibilities himself. As such, he makes it a priority to express his appreciation and compassion to the children of our immigrant clients. Albert wants these young ones to know that they are not alone, either.
