About This Course
The justification defense is not the go-to strategy of most criminal defense attorneys. In that it pre-supposes the client’s admission of a criminal act, most attorneys would advise their client that taking a plea is the safer route. But attorneys who ignore the great potential of the justification defense may not be acting in the best interests of their client.
This CLE course presented by Jeffrey Schwartz, will explain why with a thorough explanation of the justification defense, how to use it, when to use it and strategies for implementing it to turn a guilty plea into a not-guilty verdict.
