High Profile Attorney Stops in Fresno to Give Advice

Mark Geragos is known for representing celebrities like Michael Jackson, Winona Ryder...and Scott Peterson.
        High profile defense attorney Mark Geragos was in Fresno today giving advice to attorneys here in the Valley.
        Geragos spoke at a luncheon at Pardini's restaurant Friday.
        There were dozens of attorneys, paralegals and law students in attendance.
        Geragos is known for representing celebrities like Michael Jackson, Winona Ryder and currently singer Chris Brown.
        Perhaps his most famous case involved his client and now convicted murderer, Scott Peterson.
        Organizers of the event say it's important for the local law community to hear from someone with such experience.
        "I think they'll take away the perspective of somebody that's doesn't this job in a very large stage and the particular perspective he has as to what's good about the system and what needs fixing," said Carl Faller with the Fresno County Bar Association. 
        Geragos also held a book signing for his latest book titled Mistrial: How the Criminal Justice System Works and Sometimes it Doesn't
