They must interview witnesses, gather facts, collect and review police reports, research case precedents and subpoena documents. They may ideally request courts to consider new interpretations of the law in order to support the interests of their clients. They are obliged to prepare compelling arguments for both the judges and juries. Privileged Communications Las Vegas criminal defense attorneys also must maintain privacy or privilege when it comes to communications with the clients. This allows the client to speak safely to the lawyers without fear of reprisals. However, this doesn’t apply if the client utilizes the lawyer’s advice to commit a crime.

Conflict of Interests Criminal defense lawyers are ideally obliged to avoid conflicts of interests when it comes to representing their clients. A lawyer can’t implicate one client in order to help another. They must ideally ascertain that the previous clients don’t create conflicts in current cases. Honesty to Courts Like all lawyers, criminal defense attorneys are expected to make truthful representations to the courts. They are required to be as truthful as possible and should not support clients that commit perjury. They are obliged to take reasonable steps in order to fix known perjury by clients.
