• Be able to represent, with confidence, clients charged with violations, misdemeanors or felonies; and, even if skilled in the field, benefit from the practice guides prepared by leading practitioners and an experienced judge
• Know how to handle the initial steps of a criminal case for your client, even if the case is eventually referred to a criminal practitioner
The Criminal Law and Practice guide has been updated and redesigned and is now part of the New York Lawyers- Practical Skills Series. The 2013-2014 release is current through the 2013 New York legislative session.
Covering the offenses and crimes that the general practitioner is most likely to encounter, this practice guide addresses pretrial motions, motions to suppress evidence of an identification, motions to suppress physical evidence, pretrial issues, special problems in narcotics cases, and more. Newly updated by Lawrence N. Gray, Esq., this practice guide is even more valuable with the inclusion of Forms on CD.
Even if you never handle criminal cases, a current client involved in a criminal matter may well contact you first. Even if you ultimately refer the case to a criminal law specialist, the way you handle the matter initially will leave a lasting impression on your client.
Written by experienced prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys and judges, Criminal Law and Practice provides an excellent text of first reference for general practitioners as well as defense attorneys. With its many useful forms and charts, this book will be an invaluable part of your library.
