Product details

This new publication, LexisNexis Practice Guide: Washington Criminal Law, takes the place of the retired Washington Criminal Practice in Courts of Limited Jurisdiction. Author Linda Portnoy partnered with attorney and Judge Lisa Leone to write the book. In addition to receiving feedback from reviewers from county prosecutor offices and private defense attorneys, we were fortunate to have the benefit of Judge Ronald Kessler, a retired King County Superior Court judge and author of the Criminal Caselaw Notebook, as our publication’s reviewing editor and legal consultant.

The new title is a comprehensive criminal law book, covering both felony and misdemeanor state practice. This single volume book contains many additional subjects important to the practice of criminal. Each of the 25 chapters is carefully crafted to contain the essentials for trial practice with a focus on the most authoritative and current state and federal caselaw, rules and statutes; it is written with defense, prosecution and judges in mind. The book is also practice oriented, with many forms and checklists.
