Today, high-profile cases seem to come in waves. Few T.V. anchors or newspaper reporters are able to provide any real insights into the pre-trial proceedings, the motions filed, or the goals of the defense lawyer and the prosecutor. Reporting is often little more than hype. Massachusetts criminal defense attorney Kevin J. Mahoney provides commentary on current high-profile cases to cut through the sensationalism, educate the public on the legal issues involved, analyze the merit of the charges, and critique the performances of the judge, criminal defense lawyer, and prosecutor. As the Founding Fathers recognized, only a public trial — with all the scrutiny that can entail — assures the accused a fair trial.
As Attorney Mahoney has completed his book, Relentless Criminal Cross-Examination (2008, James Publishing Co.), he will be adding new commentaries regularly.
