Why Experience Is So Important

A federal courtroom is an entirely different environment than a state or local courtroom. Yes, the basic Constitutional rules that govern trials are the same throughout the country, but actually navigating a courtroom is more complicated than understanding legal theory.

Every court is run according to a set of rules- these rules govern everything from the admission of evidence to the behavior of attorneys. At the local level, these rules are often fairly relaxed and casual. Not so in federal court.

Federal courtrooms have an intricate series of rules that must be thoroughly understood if you are to have success in them. You don't want a lawyer who is learning on the job.

Mr. Nettles has spent decades working through these rules as both the chief federal law enforcement officer in the district of South Carolina and a defense attorney. He understands the federal court system in a way that will prove absolutely invaluable during your defense.
