  • Case Dismissed Felony POCS & Probation Violation

    Our client was charged with an POCS 3rd degree felony while on probation in another county for a DWI 2nd. The car he was in was pulled over and, after officers obtained the consent of the driver, the car was searched. The police found cocaine in the vehicle and our client took responsibility.

  • Case Dismissed Assault Family Violence w/ Strangulation and Injury to a Child

    Our client and his wife had a contentious relationship with his wife’s ex-husband, and, unfortunately, our client’s middle-school aged stepdaughter was caught in the middle. After getting into trouble at home, the stepdaughter falsely accused our client of strangling her.

  • Case Dismissed Theft

    Our client, a legal permanent resident, was charged with stealing clothing at Macy’s. The State offered our client an initial plea deal. However, due to her immigration status, we advised our client that it was in her best interest to fight this case the whole way.

  • 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; Charges Reduced Two Counts of Sexual Assault of a Child

    Our client was arrested after two girls he met online turned out to be underage. He was charged with four counts of sex assault of a child. The State interviewed the girls and obtained incriminating cell phone evidence, as well as evidence of drug use. The DA’s Office aggressively prosecuted this case and sought prison time.
