Pre-Trial and Evidentiary Hearings in Criminal Cases

Preparation and understanding of different types of pre-trial hearings is essential in criminal cases.

Because the lion's share of criminal cases are resolved in the pre-trial phase, this unique topic takes a deep look into the importance of preparing for these hearings where many lectures fall short. This material will assist young and experienced lawyers alike in understanding the importance of adequate preparation for these hearings, as well learning about pitfalls to avoid. This information is critical for those lawyers who want the best possible results for their clients in criminal cases.
