ON DEMAND: MCLE: Importance of Pre-Court Intervention in Criminal Cases

Class recorded December 9, 2020

By making use of pre-court intervention, defense counsel can successfully persuade prosecutors to drop criminal charges against a client completely, or reduce them in severity, before a case proceeds to court with formal charges at arraignment. Both new and seasoned criminal attorneys will benefit from learning about this vital, but often overlooked, form of defense advocacy.

Class covers:

  • Why pre-court intervention? Advantages of pre-arraignment advocacy
  • Using private investigation to uncover evidence missed by law enforcement
  • Preparing a formal legal position highlighting factual weakness or other issues
  • Conferring with prosecutors to persuade in favor of dropping/reducing charges
  • Appropriateness of pre-court intervention in different case scenarios
