Criminal defense attorneys can use several strategies to mitigate the punishment of their clients. One such strategy is to prove mitigating circumstances. For example, if a person committed a crime while under the influence of passion or drugs, the lawyer can prove that these circumstances influenced the client’s behavior. The attorney can also prove that the client cooperated with law enforcement in good faith, helped solve other crimes, etc. All of this can lead to a reduced sentence.
