  • State v. S.B.

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Apr 18, 2013
    Outcome:
    Not Guilty on Felony Drug Charge and Driving on Revoked License
    Description:
    In Tennessee, multiple convictions for simple possession of drugs can lead to a felony charge, if arrested again. My client was pulled over for a minor traffic infraction and the police subsequently asked to search the car. After finding small amounts of a controlled substance, the officers arrested my client, took her downtown, and charged her with felony drug possession. My client was acquitted due to two reasons. First, the procedures the officers used to gain entry into the car were not supported by the law. Secondly, the quantity of the alleged contraband reported by the officers was not the quantity that the officers actually found on my client. Take away: There are two sides to every story. There are also procedures that must be followed.
  • State v. R.S.

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Aug 07, 2012
    Outcome:
    Aggravated Burglary charge reduced and subsequently erased from client's record
    Description:
    My client's aggravated burglary charge was a great example of police's ability to abuse its discretion by overcharging a crime. Supported by the facts, I successfully reduced this charge to aggravated criminal trespass with the opportunity to have it erased from my client's record after certain tasks have been completed.
  • State v. R.P.

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Oct 08, 2012
    Outcome:
    State makes generous offer to settle case after jury selection
    Description:
    My client was in custody and charged with Aggravated Assault. If found guilty at trial he very likely would have served 15 years in jail. The State refused to make a reasonable offer so we proceeded to trial. After two hours of picking our jury, the State lost confidence in its case and made a generous offer my client couldn't refuse. He was made eligible for release in only a matter of months. Takeaway: Never underestimate the power of persuasion during jury selection.
  • State v. Jose Olivo

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Jun 13, 2012
    Outcome:
    Aggravated Child Abuse/Neglect charges reduced to simple misdemeanor, Client released from custody
    Description:
    A parent's worst nightmare. My Spanish-speaking client and his wife were wrongfully accused of two counts of aggravated child abuse, each charge carrying a mandatory 15-25 year sentence at 100% time to serve if found guilty. My client's infant baby of 6 months had a hairline chip/fracture at her ankle (medically known as metaphyseal corner fracture of the right distal tibia). The state alleged that one of the parents must have intentionally inflicted this injury and refused to believe that this could be the result of an accident. On multiple occasions my client was interrogated without a necessary Spanish translator. After a year of dedicated medical research, interviews with expert witnesses, and calculated negotiations with the prosecutor, my client was released from custody on a simple misdemeanor, and all charges were dropped against the mother. A family ripped apart for one year were finally reunited. Baby "B" is a healthy, happy, beautiful little girl who is back with her mother and father.
  • State v. A.L.

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    May 28, 2014
    Outcome:
    Felony aggravated assault charge retired after preliminary hearing
    Description:
    In Tennessee, we are cloaked with the protection of the law of self-defense when we find ourselves in certain situations. My client was charged with aggravated assault after he brandished his pocket knife to defend himself. The attacker was med flighted to a Nashville hospital and survived. At the preliminary hearing, we established the necessary facts to justify the use of lethal force after a reasonable fear of death or serious bodily injury had occurred. The case against my client was ultimately retired a few months later. Important takeaway: A victim isn't defined by his injuries, he is defined by his actions.

    Description:
    Client was arrested and charged with third consecutive DUI 1st charge. Successfully reduced DUI charge to Reckless Endangerment. Take Away: Third time is not the charm. Every case has its own facts to argue.
