Hashing Out the Law (Intro)
Serving the PublicBiden & ImmigrationPatents, Trademarks & CopyrightsPublic Defender
Welcome to Season 3 of Hashing Out the Law. I am your host Arash Hashemi. Throughout my career I have been asked a lot of questions and heard a lot of comments about public defenders. It amazes me how little people know or think they know about public defenders. So, I decided to invite my friend and colleague Jacqueline Davalos, who is a real life public defender, to come on the podcast and set the record straight.   Jacqueline Davalos is an experienced trial attorney with over 8 years of jury trial and litigation experience handling thousands of cases with favorable results. Ms. Davalos has worked as a deputy public defender for several years, working with our society’s most vulnerable population. She zealously and confidently negotiates with prosecutors and judges to secure the best outcome for her clients. Having worked as an immigration attorney also provides Ms. Davalos specialized knowledge to strategically navigate the criminal justice system to mitigate immigration consequences stemming from criminal charges.   Ms. Davalos has extensive jury trial experience obtaining acquittals in several California counties. She has handled cases involving gang shootings, robbery, drug sales, sexual assaults, attempted murder, assaults with a deadly weapon, hit and runs, bank robberies, carjacking, evading, DUIs, elder abuse, animal neglect, welfare fraud, domestic violence, firearm and drug possession, street racing, battery, burglary, auto theft and more. She has successfully obtained dismissals in felony and misdemeanor cases for lack of evidence, lack of a speedy trial and by providing additional, exonerating evidence to the prosecutor. In addition, she has been successful in suppressing evidence that was illegally seized by law enforcement resulting in forced dismissals of cases. *Disclaimer - The materials on this Podcast are for informational purposes only and are not legal advice.

LSAT-Flex, The information You Need to Know.
Welcome to Season 2 of Hashing Out the Law, the podcast where we discuss and hash out legal issues and/or topics. I am Arash Hashemi and on this episode I will be talking to Steve Schwartz about the LSAT-Flex.  Due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, the April LSAT has been canceled and an alternate test, the LSAT-Flex, has been introduced. Steve and I go over the details of the LSAT-Flex and answer all the questions that come with it. With the goal of getting into law school and being a successful attorney Steve saw the LSAT as a major roadblock. He knew that before he could achieve his goal of being a lawyer he had to master the LAST. So he set aside a few months and studied every LSAT book and every LSAT question he could find. He kept studying until eventually reaching the high 170s and scoring 175 on test day. (Recorded 4/14/2020) Today he coaches other who are getting ready to take the LSAT and helps them to achieve their dreams as well.
