Criminal Defense Investigation

The criminal defense investigation serves an essential purpose in a trial- breaking down the prosecution witnesses. By using aggressive cross-examination techniques, the defense attorney can dismantle the credibility of the witnesses and reduce the amount of weight given to their testimony. This is a necessary step in ensuring a fair trial for the defendant as the prosecution witnesses can often make or break the case. The goal is not to necessarily prove the defendant’s innocence but to challenge the prosecution’s case by scrutinizing the evidence presented by their witnesses. The main objective of criminal defense investigation is to level the playing field and challenge the prosecution’s version of events through careful and calculated cross-examination techniques.
