People v. Cadell

Steven Marc Raiser

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Felony case dismissed. Disposed of with a violation.

Description:Client was charged with a felony (burglary) had another attorney for two years. He got her an offer, to plea to the felony but kept adjourning it hoping the Government would not require jail time. She came to my office asking for a better disposition since she did not feel comfortable with the attorney she had. Our firm took the case and in two months I was able to get the case reduced to a violation (not a crime) with a small fine. Therefore, we were not only able to save her from jail time and avoid a felony conviction but also to avoid a criminal convictioin altogether.
