Techniques in the Defense of a Federal Criminal Case

by Jay Goldberg

Criminal Defense Attorneys, Learn to Prepare for Trial from a Master!

Jay Goldberg, who was cited by New York Magazine as one of Manhattan's "most powerful, talented and fearsome defense attorneys," provides a comprehensive overview of the criminal litigation process that is chock-full of practical information. This 398-page, hard-cover gem, offers a wealth of tips for the legal novice and serves as a comprehensive refresher for even the most seasoned legal professional -- covering not only the basics, but enumerable advanced topics as well, from preparing for cross-examination to summation. No matter how experienced an attorney you are, you will, at several points in this book, say "I never knew that" or, "I'm glad he reminded me of that."

Through it's 38 chapters, "Techniques in the Defense of a Federal Crime Case" explores a broad array of issues through the perspective of a lion of the trial bar, who has survived and thrived in the "big leagues" for half a century. It includes excerpts from Mr. Goldberg's devastating cross examination of Sammy the Bull Gravano and from his legendary summation in U.S. v. Bess Myerson -- which alone, makes it worth the price of the book.

A graduate of the Harvard Law School, who has served as acting United States Attorney for the Northern District of Indiana; as Special Attorney and Counselor to the United States Department of Justice, Washington D.C.; and as Assistant District Attorney, New York County, Mr. Goldberg offers access to information that would take a lifetime to learn. A must read for any criminal defense attorney new to the complex world of criminal trial law at the federal level.

By Alan Ellis & James H. Feldman, Jr.

Demystify the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Yourself and Your Clients!

The Federal Sentencing Guidelines rival the U.S. Tax Code in complexity, and clients routinely are dumbfounded when we try to explain to them the “guidelines analysis” applicable to their case. The Federal Sentencing Guidebook by Alan Ellis and James H. Feldman, Jr., succinctly unravels the mystery that is the Guidelines for clients, their family and friends, as well as the occasional federal criminal practitioner. Newly revised, the 92-page Guidebook is completely up-to-date and includes analysis of the Supreme Court’s recent decisions in Booker, Gall and Kimbrough.

The principal author, Alan Ellis, Esq., is one of the nation’s foremost sentencing specialists, and also is the author of the highly acclaimed Federal Prison Guidebook, which for years has been the standard reference work on U.S. Prisons.
