Subsequent Offenses Webinar


If your client is charged and convicted of being a repeat offender, the sentences can be much longer and the collateral consequences much greater. Learn and review strategies for defending “subsequent offense” cases. This is a great training for someone who wants to transition from District to Superior Court practice or for the more experienced practitioner who is looking for additional tools and tactics to improve case outcomes.
