A criminal defense strategy is how your case will be handled when you have been charged with a crime. Once you have retained an attorney, which will be the time to sit down and discuss your options on how to proceed with the case. Your attorney will be able to advise you with his or her idea of what should be done, but of course, the attorney will need your input as well. You should tell the attorney all the facts having to do with the case. Sometimes things you think aren't very important or particularly relevant to the case can turn out to be just the opposite. That will be up to the attorney to decide. But the attorney can't make that decision without be aware of all the factors in the case.
The attorney can get all the pertinent facts of the case from court records, but your input is just as important, if not more so. You can provide the things that happened leading up to your arrest that the attorney may not be aware of. It is those types of things the attorney needs to know for two reasons. First, the attorney has to know as much about the case as possible in order to plan your best course of action. Second, the attorney doesn't need to be surprised with unknown facts when you get to court, which can only lead to embarrassment and a hurried way to smooth it over, if that can even be done.
Don't risk that happening and even if you have facts of the case that you feel are negative, let the attorney know. It is much better to give your attorney a chance to deal with the negative information then to get to court and have to deal with something that was totally unexpected.
Your attorney will want to present you and your case to the court in the best possible way and you play an important role in making sure that happens. The criminal defense strategy that has been planned for you can go smoothly if you heed your attorney's advice and don't spring anything new on him or her at the last minute. That is a disaster just waiting to happen.
The attorney has the legal experience and knowledge to forge ahead with your criminal defense strategy. You may not be able to predict the outcome, but working together, you and your attorney will have the satisfaction of a job well done.
