Today’s guest is Jay Ruane, a lawyer, author, entrepreneur, and sought-after speaker. He runs a successful criminal defense firm, a rare perspective for the podcast. We dive into some of the differences between criminal defense attorneys when it comes to marketing and business practices, such as focusing on the loved ones of clients rather than the clients themselves. We also discuss some of the misconceptions around criminal defense and some of the unique skills required for that kind of work. This chat is deep, but barely scratched the surface of Jay’s knowledge, so he’s sure to be a repeat guest on the show.
