Do criminal defense attorneys take all criminal cases?
Usually. However, there are criminal defense lawyers who focus on white collar crime, tax crimes, capital cases, appeals, and the like.
Most criminal defense attorneys handle a myriad of criminal cases such as computer crimes, battery, arson, kidnapping, rape, spousal abuse, child neglect, shoplifting, rape, statutory rape, gun offenses, drug offenses, DUI/DWI, murder, theft, etc.
It’s perfectly acceptable to call a criminal defense attorney and ask whether he or she handles your type of case.
