When trial is your best…or only…option!

June 1, 2023 5:00 PM

The Federal Criminal Law Committee for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania is pleased to announce its next meeting and CLE program on Thursday, June 1, 2023 beginning at 5pm. FCLC Executive Committee Member Douglas K. Rosenblum, a partner at Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP, will moderate a panel discussion highlighting the potential benefits of going to trial in white collar cases. Although approximately 98% of federal criminal cases end in guilty pleas, sometimes a trial is your best…or only…option. Perhaps your client is adamantly against a plea. Maybe you feel the government is not as prepared as you are, and expediting trial will work to your advantage. Or perhaps you believe your client will fare better at sentencing than the deal the prosecutor is offering you. Our panel of experienced trial attorneys will address these issues and more!

The panel will include:

  • Douglas K. Rosenblum, Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP (Moderator)
  • Marc S. Raspanti and Kevin E. Raphael, Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP
  • Ann C. Flannery, Law Offices of Ann C. Flannery, LLC
  • Brian McMonagle, McMonagle, Perri, McHugh, Mischak and Davis
