Great Advice For the Budding Criminal Defense Lawyer

Adam Levin at Southern Criminal Law and Justice has put together a terrific post covering a wealth of areas for the rookie criminal defense lawyer.  It presents many areas of questions, and provides responses from numerous sources, myself included.

What’s fascinating is that, without any collusion whatsoever, so many of the responses to Adam’s questions are the same.  You might think that, given the different locales in which we practice and varying levels of experience, we would have some major disagreements about how to be a lawyer, practice law and handle clients.  Yet the opposite is true. 

Adam should be commended for this ambitious and really well-handles piece.  If you are new to criminal defense, or are considering whether it’s right for you, this is a must read.
