Different Types of Criminal Lawyers

Justine Anderson | Sunday 16 March 2014 ( 0 Comment)

 Like the law itself, legal representation is not one size fits all. Depending on the crime and the court, one specialty may be more or less appropriate than another. When it comes to criminal law, the type of lawyer can be as important as the lawyer themselves.

Whether you choose your lawyer or one is chosen for you depends on your financial situation. For those without the means to hire a private attorney, depending on the jurisdiction, a public defender may be chosen for them. The public defender's office functions as part of the local, state or federal government. These lawyers are salaried government agents, meaning that they must accept their assigned client and are paid the same wage regardless of the time they spend on each case.


There is also a significant number of not-for-profit legal entities, wherein lawyers are free to establish their fees and/or volunteer their time to represent a plaintiff or defendant. The organization may specialize in certain types of crimes or general criminal activity and are under no legal obligation to represent any particular client.


Private defense attorneys are generally chosen by the defendant and/or theirrepresentative.
These lawyers are paid directly, are free to set their fees as they or their law firm or group see fit, and they are not legally obligated to accept any particular client.


As for the nature of the crime, different lawyers have different strengths. Violent crimes generally warrant different representation than white-collar crime, and a lawyer for a capital offense would most likely refuse to represent a DUI.


The United States Constitution defends every citizen's right to legally defend themselves in a court of law. When it comes to mounting the best defense, public, private or otherwise, having a criminal attorney is a right that should not be overlooked.
