Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works.  In this episode, she talks with Brockton D. Hunter, Minneapolis-based criminal defense lawyer about the book his co-authored with Ryan C. Else titled "The Attorney's Guide to Defending Veterans in Criminal Court."  As former United States Senator Max Cleland writes in the Forword to the book:

"When you put PTSD, TBI, and substance abuse together, it isn't difficult to imagine the potential for behavioral issues that could place the veteran in the hands of the legal system.  When that happens, the crisis of criminal involvement must be used as an opportunity to ensure that the veteran receives the treatment and support that he or she needs.  If we fail to do this with this generation of combat veterans, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes and their tragic consequences that my generation of Vietnam veterans is still dealing with to this day....

I salute all the contributors to this important book.  This guide is the finest effort I have seen in getting appropriate legal services for those who have defended this nation with honor and courage."
