Put the prosecution on the defensive! Defending Federal Criminal Cases: Attacking the Government's Proof equips defense attorneys with the legal arguments and tactics they can and should use to challenge the government's evidence at every stage of a criminal case.

Beginning with the assessment of whether to cooperate with the government, this authoritative guide provides advice on the substance and timing of defense motions, objections and appeals, as well as open questions and splits among the circuits. Coverage includes: bases for motions to dismiss indictments; obtaining and drafting a Bill of Particulars; Fourth and Fifth Amendment grounds for suppressing evidence; Sixth Amendment rights, including the defendant's right to a speedy trial, confrontation of witnesses, and adequate representation; discovery issues, including the prosecution's obligations under Brady; proven methods for cross-examining government witnesses; capitalizing on perjury by government witnesses; objections based on substantive and procedural due process; and more.

Focused on the needs of practitioners, this book examines a wide range of motions to file and how you can assert them effectively. Defending Federal Criminal Cases: Attacking the Government's Proof will greatly increase your chances of winning at trial or creating a record for a successful appeal.
