The Intersection of Family and Criminal Law: Protective Orders and Other Related Issues


The MSBA Criminal Law Section invites you to a live webinar: The Intersection of Family and Criminal Law – Protection Orders and Other Related Issues on Wednesday April 14, 2021 from 1 – 3:00 p.m. 

Co-sponsored with the Maryland Association of Justice, this comprehensive program will focus on what lawyers need to know when preparing to bring or defend a family law client’s related criminal and/or Protective Order case. This includes when your client is the Defendant and/or the victim as well as Petitioner and/or Respondent. Learn from experienced faculty, Jana Ponczak, Esq., Nancy Forster, Esq. and Tara LeCompte, Esq., on how to work as a team with the criminal defense bar to represent your family law clients with criminal law issues. This program is designed for both the new lawyer and the most experienced attorney.

This program is co-sponsored by the Maryland Association for Justice.

2 (two) hours of CLE credit will be offered to the surrounding MCLE states.

We’re integrating the Zoom platform into our livestream programs! Participants will now be able to use the chat box and pose questions to the faculty during the presentation. As our live streams will use Zoom, you will have the same video and audio functions. Please keep your phone or computer muted unless you’re speaking. You may wish to turn off your video camera to allow the attendees to focus on the presenters. Use the chat box to ask questions and include which faculty member you’d like to address the question.
