ORLANDO, Fla. - Sept. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- As a public service, Criminal Defense Lawyer Patrick Megaro has made "The Megaro Criminal Law Library" available online. The library is free of charge and contains all of Mr. Megaro's Criminal law articles and videos. In addition, there is a "search" feature that allows users to search the videos and articles by keyword.

Patrick Megaro explains that he started out with a Blog of his written articles and commentary, but eventually, "with the growth of the content, it became too unwieldy and difficult to search. I thus decided to organize all of the information more efficiently, and use an index service so that users can search the Library by keyword."

Mr. Megaro is providing all this information as a public service, free of charge. "I have focused on this area of law for more than 20 years, and at this stage in my life and experience, I would like to share with the public, law students, and my peers all the knowledge I have acquired. I sincerely hope that some of my esteemed colleagues in the profession will find the materials useful for their own law practice."

The Library is organized by different sections, Videos, Articles, News and an Archive. The most recent featured article of Mr. Megaro is about "How to Preserve Error At Trial in Florida: An Appellate Lawyer's Practice Tips (PART 1)." In that article, Patrick Megaro addresses the problem when an error at trial is not properly preserved for appeal. In legalese, that is something like "This issue before us was not properly preserved for appellate review and is therefore not now cognizable.  Affirmed."  Mr. Megaro explains that "appellate lawyers cringe when we see these words written, especially in our own case decisions.  This means that no matter how brilliant the trial attorney was, they did not make a specific, timely objection at the trial level, which has effectively waived their client's right to appeal that issue." The law requires that any error during trial be properly preserved. Thus, a lawyer must be specific with the objection so as to inform the trial court of the perceived error."  State v. Garza, 118 So.3d 856 (Fla. 5th DCA 2013). It means that the attorney must spell out WHY he or she objects (be it in a motion, a post-hearing memorandum of law, a written notice of objection, or an argument on the record at the appropriate time why something is legally erroneous). Further, such objection must be SPECIFIC. Finally, the objection must be TIMELY and CONTEMPORANEOUS. This means that the attorney must immediately object when something is coming into evidence – sometimes before and after.
