Jury Trial and Rules of Evidence

If arrested or cited for a crime in Louisville then it is possible that it leads to a trial.  There are bench trials and jury trials.  Jury Trials are necessary and are an integral part of a criminal defense attorney's arsenal. Great jury verdicts lead to great plea deals. Brendan McLeod, the Louisville Criminal Defense Lawyer, prefers jury trials over bench trials.   If you are not scared of trying cases and you are winning trials your plea deals will reflect that ability. Look around and before you find your attorney see if they try cases. See if they have won at trial? If they have, how many? Circuit versus District Trials?

When I look around and I see the courts and trials in Louisville, I realize how few attorneys have trials consistently. I'm sure there are defense attorneys that have not won at jury trial. There are so many attorneys that have practiced 10 years and more who have not had more than 5 jury trials and have still never one a trial. This is not a fluke.

When I say "jury trial", be sure, that is not a "dismissal." Every trial that is won I guess equates to a dismissal, but certainly, not every dismissal is from a jury trial. Find out your attorney's background and figure out what is going on.
Care to watch a trial? Go to my YouTube site, right here. That is the custom URL. Go There are see what you are getting. There are currently 11 trials on the channel, from murder, robbery to trafficking drugs. They are acquittals and 14 more are coming. There are also suppression hearings and EPO hearings, too. Oh, and they are me, Brendan McLeod.

New Paragraph

State Jurisdiction v. Federal Jurisdiction: 

The state and federal courts are very similar in regards to case flow, or the procedural due process. The United States makes much more of an effort to keep the defendant alert to the "procedural posture" of the case, but much more secretive regarding the discovery in the case.  In short,  the U.S. likes to keep the Defendant from learning more about his case.  1) Arraignment; 2) Bond Reduction; 3) Pretrial Conferences; Motions, etc. 4) Trial Date.  

Probation and Parole: Parole or Probation?  There is a difference.  Get it right!

Probation and Parole officers and getting to know the Officers and their offices is integral in representing your clients and doing criminal defense work.  If the client doesn't work this system like they should with respect and relationship building they will have a horrible time with their probation and parole officer creating a risk of noncompliance.
