"You have more power to win your case
than you realize. It's all in how you play the
poker of criminal defense. That's right. This
is poker. You have to know when to bluff,
when to hold your cards, when to bet your
chips, and when to go 'all in.'"
Jensen is an acknowledged expert on
criminal trial strategy and he not only tries
and wins criminal cases, he teaches other
lawyers how to win at seminars all over the
world. His trial strategy books are used by
lawyers the world over to improve their trial
skills and win their cases.
What do prosecutors think of
Richard Jensen's skill as a
criminal defense lawyer?

Here's what one prosecutor wrote
to Richard recently after a felony jury trial:
"I also wanted to let you know that I was impressed
with your preparation. You were without a doubt the
most prepared lawyer
I have ever dealt with in a courtroom. I always try to
learn from other lawyers and I noticed that your
case law guided your case and defense better than
I have ever seen.

"I also admired the way you anticipated all the
issues in the case and was ready to support your
side immediately. This case was like "trench
warfare" and every inch of ground was earned. The
way I see it, this case was like a prize fight that it is
hard to tell who won, because at the end,
everybody ended up in the hospital. In many ways,
that is how trial work should be.

So, my hat is off to you!
Well Done, Sir!"
