In this Special Report, host Laurence Colletti talks with criminal defense attorney Denis deVlaming about his Florida Criminal Law Update at the 2016 Annual Florida Bar Convention. Denis discusses cases, such as Hurst v. Florida and Miller v. Alabama, that have had significant legislative impacts on the Florida criminal justice system. He also provides definitions for important verbiage, like aggravating factors, to help all law practitioners better understand the effects these subsequent rulings will have on practicing lawyers in Florida. Denis analyzes the impact that the recent changes to the death penalty in Florida will have on the inmates sentenced to death and the pro bono committee of lawyers that will be representing them. He closes the interview with his top tips for lawyers who have recently graduated or who are seeking to start their own law firms in Florida.

Denis deVlaming is a former Florida prosecutor turned board certified criminal defense attorney. He is also an adjunct professor at Stetson College of Law, teaching advanced criminal trial advocacy.
