Relentless Criminal Cross-Examination

Compelling openings, passionate closings, and defense witnesses are rarely enough to win a criminal trial. The process is too in favour of the prosecution. The surest route to acquittal is effective cross-examination.

It is incisive cross-examination that exposes the shoddy and predetermined nature of a police investigation, the expert's reliance on flawed forensic techniques, and the witness' lack of candour. For the criminal defense lawyer, Kevin Mahoney's Relentless Criminal Cross-Examination will teach you how to master successful cross-examination.

Mr. Mahoney teaches you how to outline in your opening the weaknesses you will expose in the government's case. Second, he shows you how to demonstrate to the jury, through cross-examinations, that the facts are more in accord with your opening than with the prosecutor's. The book is also filled with practical strategies, angles of attack, pattern Q&A, and other essential elements of criminal defense advocacy.
