Description

Pennsylvania boasts one of the strictest appellate and post-conviction landscapes in the nation. Expert criminal litigation requires an understanding of the criminal process and procedure during the pre-trial and trial stages as well as how each pre-trial and trial decision could potentially affect your client’s rights during the appellate process, if convicted. This seminar will follow a Pennsylvania Criminal Homicide case from arrest into appellate and post-conviction litigation, highlighting the need for clear eyed forward thinking at each stage of the litigation process.
