Post: Newly licensed atty has criminal law query
Posted by McLeod on 12/07/10
I am a newly licensed attorney and have been purely doing
oil and gas work for the past 6 months. My best friend just
got in a fight outside a bar, and was beaten up pretty
badly, but got a few punches in and hurt one of the
attackers. He has two witnesses that say they attacked him
first and that he acted only in self defense. I have never
been to court except for ex parte divorce hearings, and
would like to attend his court date with him and to help
him to the best of my ability. Can someone point me in the
direction of a book or website that can tell me how best to
represent him? Do I need to file a motion of some sort?
what should I bring with me to court? Im a bit at a loss
and not sure where to look for guidance.
Thank you for any help anyone can offer.
