What are the differences between a prosecutor and a defense lawyer?

The prosecutor is a lawyer who charges the accused with the crime or crimes. They provide evidence against the accused to prove that they are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.The defense lawyer defends their client against their charges and must provide evidence in favor of the accused, proving their innocence. A prosecutor will ask questions about the crime to obtain more information, proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty. They may bring in witnesses or experts to strengthen their argument.

Comparatively, a defense lawyer will collect evidence and can bring in experts and witnesses that they have found, to help prove innocence. If the client is found guilty, the defense lawyer may appeal the ruling and go to court again to fight for the accused. If you are facing trial for a crime you did not commit, hiring a defense lawyer can help you in court against the prosecutor.
