    Mar 06, 2009
    Outcome:
    Case Dismissed Prior to Trial
    Description:
    Client was arrested for assault wth a deadly weapon. We put the pressure on the DA from the outset. The alleged victim had an unsavory past so we investigated it and found info that changed the whole ball game. The DA was still not willing to dismiss case but only to reduce it. My client was tempted to take the reduced charge and walk away but I felt strongly about the case and advised him to push the case to trial. On the eve of trial, the DA folded as we had expected. They tossed out the entire case.

I then made a motion to dismiss the case based on the fact that the prosecution had not proven its case and the judge agreed. Felony Charges dismissed and client released.

    Date:
    May 18, 2007
    Outcome:
    Domestic Violence Charges Dismissed
    Description:
    My client was charged with assaulting his wife. From the outset, there was something very suspicious about the facts of this case. My client insisted he was actually the victim in the situation. Unfortunately, the police officers had already decided to label him the aggressor and the wife as the victim. The bombshell evidence that changed everything was a 911 call recording that we were able to get our hands on. On the 911 tape, a neighbor who did not know the couple confirmed our client's facts that he was being assaulted by his wife. The charges were thrown out by the judge and I was very happy for him.
