IAMA criminal defense lawyer, AMA.
I did an AMA a few months back, and got a huge response. Link here.
There were plenty of questions that came in via private messages, and plenty of ongoing interest, it seems, so I wanted to pop up again and see if I could answer any questions you all have now.
I just finished a trial this week (theft/arson case), and was writing a motion for a case this evening. My office is closed tomorrow, so I have plenty of time to answer questions. Ask away. I'll try to get to everything.
Some of the FAQs from the last IAMA:
Q: How much do I make? A: It varies month to month based on the number of new clients and their ability to pay, and year to year, but ~100-120k
Q: What kind of cases do I handle? A: Probably 40-50% drug cases, 20-30% DUI, 10-15% property crime, and 10-15% violent offenses.
Q: Where did I go to law school? A: A very good law school; a top tier, but not super-elite school.
Verification from the last AMA here.
EDIT -- sorry all, had something come up this morning that I needed to handle, but I'm back and answering questions as best I can -- typing furiously now.
