Sheldon & Flood co-author treatise on litigating capital cases

Sheldon, Flood & Haywood partners Jon Sheldon and Joe Flood are co-authors of the 2017 treatise, “Trial of Capital Murder Cases in Virginia,” VaCLE 2017. The book was originally conceived and authorized by the Board of Governors of the Criminal Law Section of the Virginia State Bar, to serve as a legal reference for attorneys in Virginia who try capital cases — among the most complex litigated in Virginia courts. This is the only publication that focuses primarily on Virginia capital litigation.

Long-time leaders in the capital defense community, Sheldon and Flood were selected to co-author the work in light of their unparalleled and competence in litigating Virginia death penalty cases.
