When a criminal trial attorney is defending an individual on a capital murder, he is required to pursue any area of possible mitigation. A Capital Criminal Defense Attorney has the duty to hire a mitigation specialist to gather all possible mitigating evidence concerning the defendant to present at trial. It could be organic brain damage, an abusive home, learning disabilities, or any fact, event, or condition, that makes the death penalty less appropriate as a punishment and is set forth by the American Bar Association. Tune in to hear Lindsey Lanehart Craig, a mitigation specialist, and a trial consultant discuss this important area of criminal defense work.
