Joshua Treem, partner at Brown, Goldstein & Levy, attended and spoke at “Winning Strategies for the Defense,” the annual National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers advanced criminal law seminar in Aspen, Colorado. Participants gained insight regarding topics ranging from dealing with police officer bias and digital evidence to motions for compassionate release. The conference ran from January 23 to January 26 at Aspen’s St. Regis Resort.
Josh’s presentation, “Coming to Your District, the War on Defense Attorneys” focused on the recently concluded trial of US v Ravenell et al in federal court in Baltimore. Josh was charged with obstruction of justice of a government investigation by creating allegedly false documents describing a witness interview surreptitiously recorded by the government. The witness was incarcerated, claimed he had information that exculpated Josh’s client who was the target of the government investigation and invited Josh to interview him. Unbeknownst to Josh, the witness was, at the time of the interview, a cooperating government witness. After a three-week trial, Josh was acquitted of all the obstruction of justice charges.
