00:03
well my approach to dealing with
00:06
prosecutors has a number of different
00:08
forms first you need to make sure that
00:11
the prosecutor gives you everything that
00:14
they’re required to give you pretrial
00:16
discovery you need to know what the
00:19
police have done what’s in the files who
00:22
their Witnesses are what their witnesses
00:24
background are and all of that are
00:26
things that are you’re entitled to in
00:27
pre-trial discovery second I think it’s
00:29
really important that you treat the
00:32
prosecutor with respect and that you
00:34
have the respect of the prosecutor
00:36
because otherwise you’re just going to
00:39
be one of a parade of defense lawyers
00:40
who’s coming in front of them that day
00:43
trying to plead their clients case and
00:45
third I think you need to let
00:49
prosecutors know that you’re not afraid
00:52
to try cases that you will try cases
00:54
that you know how to try cases so if you
00:58
know trials are where the rubber meets
00:59
the road and if the prosecutor can’t
01:01
prove the case at trial it’s often best
01:04
to convince them of that before the
01:06
trial
