Being Heard at Hearings - Local Criminal Court Practice CLE Program Series

Being Heard at Hearings - Local Criminal Court Practice CLE Program Series - Fall 2019

    Bail hearings, preliminary hearings, grand jury and suppression hearings are ripe with opportunities to humanize your client before the Court, gather critical information about the case, and eliminate illegal or improper information being submitted to a jury. The Being Heard at Bail Hearings CLE program focuses on effective Pre-Trial advocacy in the defense of an accused. We will examine each type of hearing and provide useful tactical tips to advance your client’s interests, obtain favorable plea offers, and allow the Court to feel Justice is being served by favorable defense rulings.
