Attorney Assistant Kenneth Brickley My ambition is to satisfy counsel's requirement in case preparation. Courtroom demeanor, posture, and attire is important to a professionally presented courtroom defense. Often, defense witnesses have no experience with the environment of a courtroom. I prepare the witnesses for the defense in an effort to raise their comfort level while on the stand and before the jury. Any defense witness have but one occasion to make a good first impression to the jury, a comfortable witness is decidedly a more believable witness.

There is now at least one innocence project serving each state except Hawaii, North Dakota and South Dakota. Most of these innocence projects are new and overwhelmed with applications, so waiting time between application and acceptance is long.

Recommended Lawyers (good and bad) — the following section consists of lawyers who are recommended by others from their own experiences. Patrick Crusade takes no responsibility for the opinions of others but simply passes these opinions on to you as a courtesy in the hope that you may benefit from the experience of others. Likewise, if a recommendation is in the reverse, Patrick Crusade will list these as well as a precautionary measure and takes no responsibility for any liability based upon the personal experience of others but simply passes this on to you as a courtesy. The ultimate decision in selecting a lawyer is your responsibility. We always caution people to do their homework before selecting a lawyer. You cannot sue us for liable or slander (1) because we have no money, and (2) because truth is the best defense against liable or slander. For consumer protection: If a lawyer does a good job, we want to hear about it. If a lawyer does a lousy job, we want to hear about that too.
