Continuing Legal Education

The importance of continuing legal education to the criminal lawyer cannot be overstated. Criminal laws are regularly updated and modified, and court cases modifying or refining our understanding of those laws are released every day.

Knowing the law is a necessary precondition to obtaining the best possible outcome in a criminal matter. Additionally, leading practitioners present CLE courses on new approaches and techniques which are designed to help the attorney reach better outcomes for his client.

When evaluating a criminal defense lawyer, consider not just the education he may have had 20 years ago; consider what type of education he's had since then to help you win your particular case. Listed below are the attendance records for the courses I have attended and taught for the last several years.
