Georgia Criminal Appellate Law Blog Offering Insight and Commentary on Appellate Law and Criminal Trial Practice

Upcoming Speaking Engagements

Posted in News

First, it’s been about three weeks since my last post. Between getting moved into the new office in Decatur and a family vacation, I have been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. I’ve spent time getting accustomed to a new commute and schedule. After so many years in truly solo practice, it is great to have colleagues down the hall. And what great colleagues these guys are!

So, the blogging frequency is now returning to 2 or so posts per week.

And, I want to let you know about two upcoming talks I will be giving. On September 7, Doug Peters and I will be speaking at a Seminar titled Crack the Code. The seminar will help lawyers prepare for the new evidence code, which will go into effect in just four months. Our talk will focus on how the new evidence code affects expert witness testimony. But other speakers include Don Samuel, Mike Hawkins, and Jack Martin. The seminar will be at the Bar headquarters in Atlanta.

And on September 21, I will give the criminal caselaw update at the late summer seminar of the Henry County Bar Association, at the Ritz Carlton at Reynolds Plantation. It’s been an eventful year in the U.S. Supreme Court and in the Georgia appellate courts in the area of criminal law. I’m excited about the opportunity to hit the highlights in an hour of conversation.

I’m looking forward to many great conversations going forward, and I hope to see some of you at these upcoming seminars.
