Criminal Practice: Triage for the Civil Lawyer

 

Learn which cases to accept, which ones to avoid, and how to defend the accused.

Have you turned down a criminal case because you are unsure you can handle it? This material will help you learn to identify the right criminal case to accept, the wrong ones you must avoid, and enjoy this interesting and profitable field. Criminal cases provide many benefits to the attorney. They can be resolved in a courtroom far more quickly than a civil case. They offer an opportunity to showcase the attorney's talents. They provide the financial advantage of a payment regardless of the outcome. They are exciting, and therefore personally rewarding. But they contain pitfalls for the unwary. Learn how to successfully defend the accused. The accused are constitutionally entitled to a defense, and if you are, or can be, the best attorney available for the job, it is your duty to accept the case, and top that with a large financial reward. This information will help you learn how to be that attorney and will open that door for you. You will learn how to evaluate the case, how to prepare for the major steps in criminal law litigation, and what pitfalls to avoid.
