My name is Albert Wan and I am a criminal defense and civil rights attorney in Atlanta, Georgia. Prior to Atlanta, I lived in New York almost exclusively, where I scooted around from borough to borough and county to county as a student, professional, and curious onlooker – often all three at once.
This blog is my platform for ruminating on issues related to criminal law and civil rights in Georgia and beyond. For more information on the blog itself, I invite you to read my Inaugural Post.
For a full profile of myself, including links to some of my writings, please visit my law practice website.
Hi, Mr. Wan, I’ve just come across your blog. I am a teacher in Massachusetts and my Amer. Lit. classes with be reading “Invisible Man” next term. If we can work it out can we get a conversation going with you as we read the novel? Thanks, Larry
There is a recent case from the the 4th circuit court of appeals that I think your audience might find to be of interest and that you might want to read when you come back from break. The case is Akinsade vs US
Thank you for the heads up. I am aware of the Akinsade case but have not had a chance to formulate a post on it. I will try and do so soon, as well as offer some other commentary on developments with the body of law that is Padilla retroactivity.
