JLongtin Law is excited to announce the launch of its newest book “Criminal Law: A Primer”!

As criminal defense attorneys, we know just how terrifying it can be to face criminal prosecution. When our clients first come to us, they are often stressed, overwhelmed, and uncertain about the future. That is why we wrote “Criminal Law: A Primer” for individuals and families encountering the criminal justice system.

In “Criminal Law: A Primer”, you won’t find legalese or confusing lawyer jargon. Instead, we break down each step of the criminal prosecution process in simple terms so that readers can face the justice system with confidence.

Readers will learn about:

  • Their constitutional rights,
  • How to navigating contacts with law enforcement,
  • Mitigating factors that may help their case, and
  • How criminal trials and appeals work.

“Criminal Law: A Primer” is small enough to fit in your pocket, so you can take it with you to court, keep it handy while discussing your case with your lawyer, or share with a loved one going through criminal prosecution. The book also includes a glossary of helpful legal terms as well as games that readers can play while waiting in court.

Below is an excerpt from the Introduction:

"Being charged with a crime can be scary and can make a person feel hopeless, especially when things do not seem to be going the right way. You can often neglect your mental health while you deal with your case, or the criminal process can intensify existing mental health issues. It can be just as hard watching a loved one go through the criminal justice system. This is very normal, but it is serious, and should be addressed. No matter what you are charged with, your loved one’s care about you - you will get through this."
