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.
