A Proven Track Record

Check Out Our Recent Case Results
  • Felony Rejected Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Interference with a 911 Call
  • Pre-Trial Diversion DWI Voluntary Blood Draw

    Our Client was pulled over and investigated for DWI. He was asked to perform Standard Field Sobriety Tests and subjected to an eye movement test. He also voluntarily provided a blood sample to be tested. The results were twice the legal limit. Our client has a prior felony conviction. The State waited a full 2 years after the incident and right before the deadline of the statute of limitations were to expire to file the charges against our Client.

  • Deferred Prosecution Juvenile Assault

    Our client was a juvenile who got into altercation with a classmate on school grounds and was charged with assault. We know the stress of facing a charge at a young age is a lot for a family to navigate without assistance and can come with severe repercussions. We took the challenge to the State to prove its case while keeping the family involved.

  • Case Dismissed DWI

    Our client was stopped by a police officer for driving the wrong way down a one-way street. A Blood Warrant was issued, and the test came back .09. Our client was new to the area and attempting to get a job. Pleading guilty to a DWI was not an option. After negotiating with the prosecutor, our firm was able to get the DWI charge dismissed after successful completion of 18 months deferred prosecution.
