PCRA Law and Practice:
What Every Philadelphia Practitioner Needs to Know
Every criminal defense lawyer needs to be aware of the possible consequences of how s/he interacts with clients and the courts and how to avoid being deemed legally ineffective. Most criminal defense lawyers will also confront, at some point, the need to know what to do with possible ineffective conduct by the client’s prior coun-sel. Two of the most informed practitioners in this area, Burton A. Rose, Esq. and Robin Godfrey, Esq., Chief of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office PCRA Unit, will help you to stay abreast of this complex and fast moving area of the law. The hour will include not only tips on present practice in Philadelphia, but will include the most recent Pennsylvania and U.S. Supreme Court rulings (including those regarding pleas and juvenile life without parole mandatory sentencings).
