Designed to be a tool for both defense counsel and prosecutors, California Criminal Motions offers a comprehensive review of all the motions that are filed in California criminal cases. It provides more than 130 motions that lawyers can use in their everyday practices, as well as practice notes containing detailed background information and helpful hints.

These motions can be used with a minimum amount of modification, but also supply sufficient background materials for lawyers to customize their documents to fit specific fact patterns. Topics covered include:

  • Arraignment, bail, and first appearance
  • Preliminary hearings and grand jury indictments
  • Pretrial motions
  • Discovery
  • Trial motions
  • Sentencing motions
  • Postconviction motions

If there is a considerable amount of additional information available on a given topic, the reader is referred to relevant sources of authority in a section at the end of the practice notes.
