063 – Stand Your Ground



When and where does “Stand Your Ground” apply?  What are the factors that define self-defense? Can punching someone be legally considered deadly force? Why is Ohio currently one of the hardest places to prove self-defense, and what are the changes to the law that will definitely change this?

Jared shares his personal connection to the upcoming State of Ohio vs. Crystal Bruce trial that is scheduled to begin on December 3, 2018 in Akron, Ohio and shares some of unbelievable details.

Steve, Jeff and Jared talk deadly force, the George Zimmerman trial, CCW, the duty to retreat and the Castle Doctrine, and throwing stars, Samurai swords and barbeque tools as weapons.

059 – Mail Call #2 Election Edition What Is Attorney-Client Privilege?



Our audience asks us some great questions – and we answer them! “Do you advise using dash-cams?”, “What does attorney-client privilege mean?”, “Should I go to law school at 46?”,  “If you delete a dash-cam video after an accident, is that destroying evidence?”, “Has Jeff considered a less-stressful practice area like real estate?”, and “Jeff’s voice is a dead-ringer for what celebrity?” Ok, what would your answer be to that last one?

Steve, Jared and Bill answer our most recent listener questions, try to avoid talking about the election, and also discuss the opiate problem, why adding Constitutional amendments is usually not a good thing, why attorney-client privilege never applies to jailhouse phone calls, and why there are so many Russian car crash videos on YouTube.

Also, find out what prompts Lawyer Steve Palmer to say, “I hate lawyers. God, I hate lawyers…”
