An experienced, intuitive and well-prepared criminal defense attorney will impact which citizens are chosen for the jury and how they approach their responsibilities.
By relying on her well-honed ability to question prospective jurors and evaluate their answers, criminal defense attorney Sara Webster knows how to identify and eliminate unfavorable or biased jurors during the selection process.
