[Korean lawyer] What Does a Criminal Defense Lawyer Do?
Today, attorney Ella is going to introduce about a criminal defense lawyer in Korea.
What does a criminal defense lawyer do?
Criminal defense lawyer defenses a person who commits a crime to mitigate the punishment. Also, he/she defenses innocent person because getting indictment by the prosecution with the commission of a criminal offense or getting police investigation DOES NOT MEAN that person is already guilty.
Therefore, Criminal defense lawyer is specialized at defending clients at the police investigation stage as lawyer would accompany defendant among all pre-indictment stages.
So, the earlier a client comes to the lawyer, the more a lawyer can defense a client from getting personally accused or convicted. Moreover, criminal defense lawyer also substitutes accusation. It is hard for a normal person to prepare a persuasive legal writing, so criminal defense lawyer substitutes accusation and helps your accusation would be accepted by jurisdiction.
