CMG’s YouTube Channel Offers Timely Insight Into Criminal Law Topics
Collins, McDonald & Gann continues to offer valuable insight into many of the most important topics in criminal law through the CMG YouTube Channel – which has launched a new series of videos that will be appearing in the coming weeks and months.

The first of the new YouTube videos recently added addresses the issue of what to do when a friend/family member is arrested … and the immediate steps you need to take to find the right lawyer. In the video, Marc addresses the critical things that you should do when someone you know is arrested for a crime – stressing how important it is to act quickly to find the best criminal defense attorney, and how securing the right lawyer can make all of the difference in criminal defense cases.
