As criminal defense attorneys know all too well, the vast majority of our cases resolve without a trial. Recent research estimates that only between 3-6% of all cases end up in front of a jury, and, of those, over 70% result in some type of a conviction. This means that all but a handful of the cases we touch on a daily basis end with a plea, and almost all end with some type of sentence being imposed by the court. In this one-day virtual workshop we will explore how to discover and apply your client’s victor story to negotiate the best possible plea deal and also how to leverage their victor story to mitigate the sentence to the greatest degree.
