Lightfoot Hosts White Collar Crime CLE Video: Representing Witnesses Before the Grand Jury

On July 30, 2014, Lightfoot hosted a one-hour CLE video on Representing Witnesses Before The Grand Jury. Under the auspices of the Alabama State Bar’s White-Collar Crime Committee, the CLE program offers practical advice for representing witnesses subpoenaed to testify before the grand jury or provide documents. Listen to insights into the decision to testify (or not), preparing your client to provide testimony, securing immunity and special considerations in representing the immunized witness. The panelists are Richard Jaffe (Jaffe & Drennan, P.C.), David McKnight (Baxley, Dillard, McKnight & James) and Melissa Atwood (U.S. Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Alabama). Lighfoot white-collar lawyers Jack Sharman, Tenley Armstrong and Jeff Doss hosted the panel. To watch the video, click here.
