Exhibiting for NARSOL in its fourth year at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers’ annual Las Vegas seminar at Planet Hollywood November 15 and 16 were Legal Director Larry Neely of New Mexico, volunteer Stephen May of Arizona, and attorney King Alexander of Louisiana. This year’s seminar was titled “Defending the Unthinkable: Zealous Advocacy in Sex Offense and Child Victim Cases.”
NARSOL’s team drew a prime location for its display and interacted with approximately 100 attendees, mostly attorneys, but investigators and other exhibitors also showed interest. Those who signed up for further contact and a chance to win a free registration at the next 11th NARSOL National Conference in Houston June 7 – 9 are from states around the country as well as from Canada.
Among the attorneys were some who litigate plaintiff civil rights cases, which is the object of NARSOL’s Scarlet Legal Action Project. The toy sharks touting SLAP and the newly-enhanced “You Can Win” sheet showing statutory attorneys’ fees awards in successful cases were especially popular with the attendees. This conference is but one example of your donations at work. Connections made carry over into our advocacy in that we are building our network of attorneys.
