Criminal Lawyer

A criminal lawyer (or criminal defense lawyer) is an attorney who practices law in the criminal courts and who primarily represents criminal defendants. Although the term could apply broadly to prosecutors and public defenders, it is more likely to be used in reference to a privately hired criminal defense attorney.
