“From my very first NACDL seminar, I knew that NACDL would always be an important part of my life. Simply put, I knew that NACDL would make me a better lawyer. Given this, I did the math: it made huge financial, as well as professional sense, to become a Life Member. This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. “
“After more than 10 years as a Regular member, I made the decision that my professional career was committed to criminal defense and so converting to a Life Membership conveyed an important message to current and potential clients in Florida and beyond. It’s more challenging than ever to protect client’s rights at all stages of the cases, and there’s no better forum than NACDL to stay on top of effective strategy. It is an honor and a privilege to be an NACDL Life Member! “

“Early in my career I recognized the value of Life Membership to me personally as a solo practitioner and ultimately in my representation of my clients. My Lifetime Membership is an investment in the organization I believe in, the organization that stands for and by me as a criminal defense lawyer, and the organization that advocates my issues as a criminal lawyer.
