About the Webinar: This webinar will describe what it takes to resolve a capital case. Resolving a capital case is a process that takes time. It involves partnering with all the important players including prosecutors, victim family members, judges and often the community. It requires a strong, long-lasting and meaningful attorney-client relationship. it requires an understanding of the client's background, his strengths and limitations, his goals and desires. At the end of the day, securing a plea for the client is a result of arduous preparation, good timing and a little luck.
