Criminal procedure varies depending on the jurisdiction in which the person is charged. A criminal case is typically initiated either by a prosecutor filing a criminal complaint or through a grand jury indictment.
People who have been arrested have the constitutional right to speak to an attorney - if they request one. They also have the right to remain silent in the face of police interrogation. If facing serious charges, they have the right to have an attorney represent them.
When someone asks for an attorney to be appointed or hire a private lawyer, the attorney will appear with them in court. Lawyers are meant to guide defendants through the proceedings and protect their rights.
