Published by the Criminal Defense and Community Outreach Committees

This handbook is designed to provide basic information to anyone who becomes involved with the criminal justice system in Montgomery County.  Obviously, no publication can answer all questions asked by every victim or defendant, but this guide explains various processes, describes services and ways to access them, and points out areas which may require specific legal expertise.

This is the second publication to emerge from suggestions by the Montgomery Bar Association's Community Outreach Committee; the first was The Montgomery County Elder Law Handbook, first published in 2000 and updated many times since.  Designed as resources for residents of the county, these handbooks are evidence of the Montgomery Bar Association's ongoing commitment to its long-standing tradition of public service.
