Join our panel of experienced criminal practitioners (some now in civil litigation practice) as they provide advice gleaned from years of courtroom experience defending those accused of crimes. The panel will include Kaiti Ferguson, attorney at Hart and Wagner, and former indigent defender with Metropolitan Public Defender, Kevin Sali, principal at Sali Law, and former civil litigator at Perkins Coie and Tyler Francis, attorney at Angeli Law Group, and former state prosecutor in Virginia. How do we best present an unsympathetic client to a jury or judge? How can we argue persuasively over the meaning of seemingly damning evidence? Defending criminal clients requires both creativity and the preservation of credibility: these talented lawyers will provide civil litigators with advice about how to do both. (Also: what do you do when your civil client has been arrested and calls you for help? Get the answers!)
