Educational Events for Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyers

If you are a lawyer on this web page, you might have a question about your case. I hope the answer is on this website, because I have been handling criminal defense and OUI cases since 2001, we have tried to make this website a resource for those charges and for lawyers trying to help their clients. There is a search feature on the site; that will access our web pages as well as over 800 Blog Posts.

As a lawyer our most important job is to be dynamic in our advocacy whether in opening or closing statement. I have discovered some great resources over the years of practice that help in preparing for trial.

Here is a list of my top book recommendations for Criminal Defense Lawyers:

  1. David Ball on Criminal Defense
  2. David Ball on Damages 3
  3. Theater Tips & Strategies for Jury Trials by David Ball
  4. The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson

I have also found you tube a great resource for ideas in closing and opening statements. If you are a new lawyer, try to watch as many trials as possible. You can never see enough trials because even after years of practice you develop insight in watching others handle a witness or deliver a closing argument.

Here are some trials that I watch frequently in preparing for trials of my own:

  1. The O.J Simpson Trial
  2. The Aaron Hernandez Trial

Recently, I hosted a seminar at the Massachusetts Bar Association with Tyrone Moncriffe, a lawyer from Houston, Texas. I met Tyrone last year while I was away at a conference in New Orleans and was impressed with his commanding presence and unique story telling abilities. I had a handful of attorneys come to the seminar to present opening and closing statements from cases they were working on; Tyrone took the time to teach myself and the other attorneys better techniques on how to make our public speaking more effective.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Michael was very professional and explained the process clearly and told us to be patient. After one year the charges got dismissed in the trial. Excellent knowledge of the court systems in the area of Boston. Would highly recommend him
★★★★★
A careless decision on my part left me facing charges which would have severely hampered my ability to stay employed and support myself. But attorney DelSignore's skillful analysis and challenging of the evidence against me resulted in a conviction on a lesser charge. Now I'll be able to go on with my life, having learned a lesson I'll never forget. Thank you, Michael. Scott
★★★★★
Mike stuck with my case for 3.5 years and always kept me informed regarding the status. Ultimately, because of his due diligence, we ended up with an OUI not guilty verdict. This case could have gone many ways but his thorough review of the case and exceptional preparedness for trial ultimately drove a positive outcome. Thank you Mike! David
★★★★★
Michael DelSignore did an amazing job with my case! Either him or his partner Julie was always available to answer any questions I had and helped walked me through the entire process. I could not have done it without them! I highly recommend choosing this law firm to deal with your legal needs, you will not be dissatisfied. Ashley
★★★★★
I cannot express the gratitude towards both Michael and Julie for their amazing work and help. It was a very stressful event and they certainly put me at as much ease as possible. From start to finish it took 14 months and all the way through they were both very engaged with me. Today was worth the wait, Michael was great in court and I was rightfully found not guilty. I would recommend Michael and Julie over and over again. Claire
