“Winning trials takes more than reciting the law, a well thought out strategy, or even courage. A trial lawyer must first understand people.” —Kevin J. Mahoney
Attorney Mahoney regularly provides on-air legal analysis for Fox News Live, Fox & Friends, CNN’s Nancy Grace, Court TV’s Catherine Crier Live and Greater Boston with Emily Rooney on high profile criminal cases. Court TV’s Forensic Files chronicled his tireless and successful defense of Christina Martin, dubbed “the Jell-O Murderer” by the national press. A master cross-examiner, his book, “Relentless Criminal Cross-Examination,” is available from James Publishing Company. Mahoney teaches criminal defense lawyers how to prepare for a trial, craft an opening statement, and cross-examine police officers, medical examiners, forensic experts, eyewitnesses, and those claiming to have been victimized. It is the fastest selling book in the history of James Publishing.
