After years of experience as the judicial law clerk to a homicide judge in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, Criminal Trial Division, I developed a complete understanding of how the system works, what tactics the prosecuting attorney may use to put you behind bars, and what weaknesses to look for in physical evidence and witness testimony against you.
