Practice Area:Child Abuse
Outcome:Jury ruled infavor of Client and refused to take jurisdiction
Description:I represented a mother in a shaken baby and Medical neglect case. The standard is one of clear and convincing. It is a lower standard then reasonable doubt. This was a very difficult case as the prosecutor, the child's attorney and one of the father's attorney was against me. I aggressively represented the mother and it went to trial. The success rate for the prosecutor in tried neglect and abuse cases is about 99%. After a 4 or 5 day trial the jury came back in favor of the mother and she got her child back.
