Satisfied Clients

  • Felony Drug Possession and Transportation Trial: Won a hung jury for the defense in a case where the officer admitted under cross~examination that the drugs were not where he had represented in his police report. The case was subsequently dismissed against my client.
  • Felony Domestic Violence Trial: Won a Not Guilty jury verdict for my client in a case involving expert testimony
  • Felony Fraud case: Won for my client a resolution of probation only, no jail, in an alleged taking of close to $20,000. The case was subsequently reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, with the payment of full restitution.
  • Felony Identity Theft and other felony charges: Won for my client, who was facing close to 7 years in prison on multiple felony charges, the chance to successfully complete a 1-year residential drug treatment program, instead of prison. The client successfully completed her treatment program and probation, avoiding prison.
  • A not guilty verdict at trial for client charged with petty theft based upon witness identification issues
  • Military client charged with theft in a case involving his ex-spouse has his case dismissed
  • The client charged with delaying/obstructing officers and resisting arrest for a verbal altercation with police gets his case dismissed
  • Military client charged with high blood alcohol content (BAC) Driving Under the Influence gets dropped special allegation of high BAC, no additional jail time, no work release. Later, we successfully fought and got dropped a case involving a charge of Driving on a Suspended License against the same client.
  • High BAC special allegation dropped for client charged with Driving Under the Influence, saving him additional jail time, the 9 month DUI school, additional license consequences, and approximately $1,000 (the difference between the cost of the standard 3-month alcohol education class and the high BAC required 9-month alcohol education class)

    – more jail/ work release time
    – more points on their licenses
  5. A jury trial, in the case of a client charged with Driving Under the Influence with an accident, won a hung jury in favor of the defense
