Register now for the NYCBA’s brand new offering, a 10-Part CLE Series co-sponsored by Marino Legal entitled “Introduction to Federal Criminal Defense for the State Court Practitioner”. The first webinar session of this series, FREE TO ALL NYCBA MEMBERS AND INSTITUTIONAL DEFENDERS, is but two days away: “Webinar One: The Pre-Arrest Federal Investigation”, live airing this Thursday, June 18th, 2020, is a lecture focused on pre-charge advocacy.
In the absence of discovery or a charging document, what can you learn about the Government’s investigation? Also, how do you conduct your own? We will discuss how to conduct witness interviews without becoming one yourself, how to safeguard electronic evidence from phones, computers and other devices, how to share information with other lawyers without wishing you hadn’t, being sensitive about and avoiding conflicts, understanding the Fifth Amendment and Act of Production doctrine, and other things you can do to help your client during this most anxious and important time. The panelists for this great program are Marc Agnifilo, Esq., Brafman & Associates, P.C. and Raymond Granger, Esq., Granger & Associates, LLC. *****
Next Thursday, June 25, 2020, the program will cover “The Arrest and Presentment in Federal Court”. This program will walk you through a negotiated surrender and the arrest, presentment, and detention processes of a federal criminal case. We will also evaluate the statutes, caselaw, legal presumptions and burdens at a detention hearing. Should we consent to detention and live to fight another day? Know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em. Course materials include examples of bail packages, motions, and detention memos, applicable statutes, and confessions of judgment. The panelists for this presentation are James Kousouros, Esq., Law Offices of James Kousouros, and Ronald Rubinstein, Esq., Law Offices of Rubinstein & Corazzo, LLP.
The NYCBA and Marino Legal are looking forward to zooming in with you this Thursday, June 18th at 3:30 pm, and every Thursday after that for the next ten weeks! For details on each of the ten sessions and to register and pay for these presentations, see below for the original 10-Part CLE Series announcement.
