I'm an O1 visa applicant and already have a sponsor. Is there anyone here who can help connect me with NYC agencies?

Currently a Creative Director at Leo Burnett in Mumbai. I have multiple international awards under my belt (Cannes, Spikes Asia, etc.).

Any advice for becoming a public defender in Southern California

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.


Crim Def Atty in Southern Arizona.


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🥺


I’m currently in civil litigation but I’ve always loved the criminal defense law world. Does it make sense to go to a PD office to get trial experience to get my foot back in the criminal door?

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

Hi - How do you find out who is a top criminal defense healthcare attorney in your state?

What is the best way to transition from insurance defense to criminal defense? I’ve been working in ID for about a year and have never been more bored in my life. I want to be challenged and do interesting work, but I’m not sure how to get started with no experience. Currently living in Chicago.

What're people using for practice management platforms these days? I'm using Clio.

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?

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?

Hi all. I’m trying to move from corporate biglaw to either private or public criminal defense. Is this transition likely? I’m a second year.

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).

Does anyone have advice for generating leads/client acquisition? i’m starting my own law firm.
