    -formulates sentencing programs tailored to a client's specific needs, often helping defendants avoid future brushes with the criminal justice system

    -spend time on a case that a defendant cannot afford to spend
    -gather information from prosecution witnesses, who often fear people accused of crimes and therefore refuse to speak to people representing themselves, and
    -hire and manage investigators, who may be able to believably impeach (contradict) prosecution witnesses who embellish or change their stories at trial.
-Criminal lawyers are available to defend or prosecute individuals in criminal cases. This means that the person on trial is being accused of committing a crime.
