The Strategic Defense of High Profile Clients (Update)


Created on November 01, 2016




In this timely program, Benjamin Brafman, a criminal defense attorney who has weathered the defense of many high-profile cases in recent years, reviews the legal and practical issues surrounding the defense of the celebrity client or the case that will involve substantial media interest, regardless of who the client is. The veteran trial attorney discusses issues that arise in the defense of a case that is "high-profile", either because of "who" the client is or the "notoriety" of the case in question.
