The Burden of Proof in a Criminal Trial

As criminal defense lawyers, we understand how crucial evidence is when defending a client. It's the currency of the courtroom, and without it even the best defense lawyer is not in a position to defend his client.

That's why we put as much effort into investigating the incident that resulted in your arrest as we do preparing your defense. The more we know and the more we can prove, the better your chances in a courtroom.

It's important to remember that the burden of proof lies on the prosecution. The defense does not have to prove another version of the case in order to win an acquittal. Your criminal defense lawyer does not need to argue that person X committed the crime or that what really happened was Y.

Instead, it is enough to merely raise reasonable doubt regarding the defendant's guilt in the eyes of a jury. Our criminal defense lawyers are experienced at finding the evidence that raises those doubts. We can put that experience to work for you.


If you've been accused of a crime and need an experienced criminal defense lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
