The Jodi Arias trial in the Maricopa County Superior Court is being hailed as the the trial of the year across the country.  But high profile cases in the media are hardly new.  The trials of Casey Anthony, Scott Peterson, O.J. Simpson and others all fascinated the nation.  And good or bad, sensationalism is here to stay.
 

 

Ever wondered how a case like the Arias trial become one of the most watched and most discussed cases of our day?  What really goes on behind the cameras?  Monica Lindstrom, an attorney who comments on high profile cases nationally and locally, will address these questions and others, such as how the media gets in the courtroom, rules the “talking heads” have to follow, and ethical considerations that affect the commentators and players.
 

 

Monica K. Lindstrom is the principal in MK Lindstrom Law, PLLC in Scottsdale and of counsel to the Merlin Law Group.  She has practiced law for over 13 years.  She started as a criminal prosecutor with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office in Phoenix and has been a litigator in various areas including criminal defense, bankruptcy, administrative law, educational law, complex civil litigation, insurance, and civil law (with issues of real estate, landlord tenant, employment, discrimination, contract, and family). She has appeared as a legal commentator on ABC’s Good Morning America, Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, Neil Cavuto’s Real World and Studio B, Nancy Grace, Tru TV and HLN and numerous other network programs. With her experience as a former prosecutor, Monica has shared her legal insight on the trials of Phil Spector, Warren Jeffs, O.J. Simpson, Dr. Conrad Murray (Michael Jackson trial), James Ray (Sweat Lodge case), and Casey Anthony. She has also commented on issues related to criminal law, insurance law, schools, students, discrimination, child abuse and Constitutional rights, to name a few. You can often see her on Fox 10 News, AZTV Channel 7’s The Morning Scramble with Pat McMahon and AZFamily 3TV (Channel 3) in Phoenix, Arizona or hear her on KTAR.  You can read her comments on current cases in the media at her website, www.monicalindstrom.com
