In New York State, grand juries hear and examine evidence concerning criminal offenses and other misconduct and are charged with deciding on whether to return a written accusatory instrument known as an indictment. The secrecy surrounding the grand jury proceedings and the gravity of an indictment levied against one’s client can be intimidating. However, with proper preparation, thorough investigation, and a strategic approach to communications with the prosecutor, a criminal defense attorney can put their client in a position to avoid an indictment or criminal charges of any kind or otherwise resolve the matter favorably.
This course, presented by Andrew M. J. Bernstein, Leader of Sichenzia Ross Ference LLP’s White-Collar Defense and Investigations Practice, will cover the law governing grand juries, grand jury presentations by the prosecutor, and the intricacies and responsibilities of criminal defense attorneys representing defendants who will be or are considering appearing before a grand jury.
This program will benefit Criminal Court/District Court practitioners looking to expand their practice to include felony grand jury practice as well as experienced criminal defense attorneys looking to further strengthen their current grand jury practice.
