Every person accused of a crime has the constitutional right to have an attorney represent them, an attorney who will protect their rights, consider their best interests and provide sound legal advice. The advice must be objective, not based on the emotions of the moment, but on the applicable law and the particular facts of the case.
Effective representation requires knowledge of substantive criminal law, criminal procedure and the rules of evidence. It requires hard work, and a clear understanding of the goals of the client and how best to achieve them.
