Pursuing or Defending Law Enforcement Civil Rights or Criminal Cases

Learn how to pursue or defend law enforcement cases and be able to select the best law enforcement expert. New and experienced plaintiff and defense civil rights attorneys can learn from one of America’s foremost forensics and law enforcement experts, Dr. Ron Martinelli, on selecting or defending state and federal Title 42 §1983 USC law enforcement practices cases and selecting the right experts for their cases. Too many plaintiff attorneys waste precious time and money in trying to represent clients against federal, state and municipal entities and their law enforcement agencies, only to have their cases dismissed on Summary Judgment, or by triers of fact. Defending attorneys will learn the strengths and weaknesses of plaintiff cases they are defending. This topic will assist attorneys in identifying valid from 'loser' cases. Learn what cases to fight and which to offer a settlement on. In the legal community where there is a plethora of so-called 'police experts,' this material will also provide important insight in how to select the proper law enforcement and forensic experts to review and opine on your important cases.
