Has anyone successfully moved their practice to a new state? I would like to get out of Texas but criminal defense is so jurisdiction specific, even at the federal level, that I’m worried I would have a hard time building up a practice with no connections.

Everyone I know who's done this closed up shop for a year or so and went to work at the public defender. Then after a year they opened back up and could still say "practicing criminal defense for 8 years" etc.

How much yearly hike can one expect at Société Générale ?
"Depends on performance" seems to be a very vague answer.
Can someone please elaborate on a better answer.

Also, Can someone shed some light on promotions?

Is there any policy, like you have to work for X years to be eligible for promotion etc.

Does anyone turn over their Ring Camera footage to police? On the one hand I would like to help my neighbors. On the other hand I don’t want to help police/prosecution. Plus I don’t want to conflict myself out of cases. Just wondered what what y’all thought.

Disclaimer this is just a hypothetical and not a an actual dilemma (yet).

Welcome to the Criminal Defense Attorneys Bowl. We hope you will ask question, share your stories about things happening in your practices, current events, cutting edge cases, and practice tips.

I'm seriously tired of all the injustice done by cops. I've now caught several in blatant lies... On video or on record.

Maybe this is a mild vent but it gets really hard to defend cases where constitutional violations are just being overlooked especially in an area that favors cops! Ugh🥺

Judge-shopping is frowned upon in most jurisdictions, if not actually prohibited in the local Bar rules or in legislation. So, how do you handle providing your client with necessary advice when you walk into court and see that Judge Hardass is presiding? A colleague of mine is currently facing a Bar discipline panel over warning off his client. What should you do in that situation?

Why aren’t there “large” criminal defense firms as there are with other types of law?

Any advice for becoming a public defender in Southern California

I’m a new associate working for a well-known defense attorney in my state. On one hand, I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best, but he also excoriates and belittles me for my mistakes. Any advice on how much it tolerable? I am here to learn and advance my career but he can be pretty nasty. (My mistakes are no worse than you’d expect a 1st year associate to make, in case you’re all wondering if I’m a major screw-up who deserves it) I leave work feeling a foot tall.

About to file a writ of habeas corpus for client where I.C.E. detainer is not executed and bond was paid. Will judge revoke bond if he hears about I.C.E. detainer. I’m guessing he will after I file this. Thoughts?
