ATTORNEY MOMS SECTION VIRTUAL MEETING
MAY 25, NOON
TOPIC: CRIMINAL LAW
General practitioners and other legal specialists often find themselves with friends, neighbors and acquaintances who need help with a criminal matter. This CLE will review the basics for the general practitioner to help guide clients to the best solution. For those new to criminal law, how do you advise your client about possible consequences of an arrest? How do I interview my client and what are some common pitfalls to look for in criminal cases?
