Meanwhile Jack McCoy gets the spotlight...

From A Guest Speaking, Practicing, Public Defender:

On Smart Clients:
I got my client a plea deal of 8 years for kidnapping…he refused…I was like ‘you confessed, they have it on video tape, why are you going to make me go to trial and look stupid?'"

On Plea Deals:
Student: "What tactics do you use for negotiating pleas with the District Attorney?"
Attorney: "Please. Really...Please! Other times it is like, come on, you owe me one for screwing my last client"

On Trial Tactics:

Student: "How often do you put your clients on the stand?"
Attorney: "I wish I never had to put my clients on the stand"
