Best Criminal Lawyer in
Chandigarh High Court

Crime has been a part of human behaviour ever since we became a civilised society. Naturally, criminal behaviour also paved way for rules to be established about what acceptable behavioural norms are and what is condemned and worthy of being punished. Crime, as a concept, is quite fluid and contextual. Some form of behaviour might be completely outlawed in a particular society whereas the same behaviour might be accepted in another. Our customs and rituals change with every few miles on land, same is true for behaviour and what constitutes crime. During the medieval period, there was a legal system in place but British certainly get the credit for laying down a proper procedure for maintenance of a just order, finding out if the accused is guilty and according a punishment befitting the nature of crime. Lord Macaulay chaired the first Law Commission which drafted the Indian Penal Code which was enacted in 1860. This statute brought whole India under uniform legislation.

It is primarily upto the government to make sure the laws they make, are implemented too, in letter and spirit. However, along with the lawmakers, the lawyers play a significant role in making sure these laws are put into practice and the citizens for whose benefit they have were enacted, are able to access justice. It is the duty of the government machinery to ensure that crime is controlled. Once a crime has been committed, it is the criminal lawyers who make sure the accused, if guilty, is punished and the victim(s) gets justice. Practising criminal law comes with a lot of responsibility and demands a lot of courage. To stand upto the wrongs committed and dealing with matters of life and death is no easy feat. Criminal lawyers put themselves at risk to make sure justice prevails at the end of the day.

Though it is reiterated time and again that the attitude towards the accused should be “innocent until proven guilty” however the same is not true in practice. It is rather the other way around. Once charged with a crime, reputation, family ties, and professional relations- everything takes a beating. In this critical time, it is absolutely necessary to have someone defend you aggressively and prove your innocence. Criminal law requires the authorities to prove that the accused is guilty as charged. There is hardly any margin for error where it is question of life and death. An individual or a group embroiled in criminal proceedings must not take it lightly and should not compromise on the help being sought. A wrong decision in this regard could spell doom for the rest of your life. You must hire the best of talent out there.
