A good criminal defense can do a couple of things. First, it can help to prove a person's innocence when they have been falsely accused. Second, it can help to explain and mitigating circumstances that may have surrounded a criminal charge, such as assault. Third, it can help procure a plea agreement that results in a lesser charge and a lesser punishment.
