Class Summary
You won the physical fight. You protected yourself and your loved ones. Now arm yourself for the legal battle that happens after an attack. Learn the five elements you must prove to raise a self-defense claim; what to say to the 911 dispatcher, responding officers, and investigative officers; and how you can help your attorney create a compelling narrative of innocence. Ignorance of the law is not a defense. Prepare yourself to protect your life and your freedom.
