State and federal prosecutors like to work from a position of strength, and they don’t hesitate to use their access to almost unlimited resources to obtain convictions. The job of a criminal defense lawyer is to attack a prosecutor’s confidence in the strength of the case. That’s what opens the door to dismissal, favorable plea agreements and victories at trial.
