When it comes to a criminal charge, you would want the best lawyers to handle your case. You don’t want a public defender to handle it because, in most cases, a public defender will try to work a deal with the district attorney. The district attorney, also known as the DA, is the one that will get the report from the person that is accusing you of the crime. He will be the one who will determine if he has enough evidence aginst you to bring you to court. Usually, the DA will bring it to court. This is where you will be picked up by a police officer.

Below, we will talk about the most common violent crimes:
