No, it would be a conflict of interest. Confusing Query I shall assume that what the querist is asking is, can the attorney who defended he or she in a criminal trial become his or her legal representative in a civil suit against the state for 'malicious prosecution'. If that is indeed the case, then there would not be a conflict of interest and the plaintiff may use whomever he or she choose to represent them. It would likely be beneficial to the client to retain the same attorney as he or she would be quite familiar with the specifics of the case.
They are the lawyers for the state. Criminal Prosecutors serve as the attorney's who represent the government in the ionforcement and prosecution of criminal offenses.
In criminal law, prosecution means the government attorney is charging and trying a case against an individual accused of a crime. The government attorney can also be referred to as the prosecution.
The prosecution will show the evidence and present the testimony that indicates guilt. The defending attorney will try to punch holes in the evidence and testimony. The jury then decides what the facts are based on the testimony and evidence.
In this state a person defending the defendant is called the defense attorney.
Besides the judge himself, you will have to write a letter to the State's Attorney's Office. I should point out, that if you truly cannot trust your appointed counsel, you would do well to refuse him and have your refusal - and reasons - placed in the record.
Basically the prosecution of crimes in general.
Can an attorney represent a member of his own family in massachusetts
The government attorney represents the PROSECUTION. The defendant's attorney represents the DEFENSE.
if he/she was your attorney no they can not represent your family members.well atleast not at the same time.atleast they are not suppose to!
The Prosecution goes first.
If you possess "full power of attorney" yes, you can.
