    One count second degree theft and 13 felony counts dropped

    A previous employer pressed charges for theft and trafficking stolen property even thought during a disciplinary hearing I showed them compelling evidence that the material in question belonged to me. I was shocked after this meeting to learn I was terminated after a long distinguished career that had no previous discipline, and then when the court letter outlining the charges arrived in my mail two weeks later I was absolutely dismayed. This nightmare started when my supervisor obtained my private sale records illegally, took them to management, and then their security division got a search warrant. During their internal investigation, the individual who gave me the material told the investigating officer the material was not stolen. This statement was withheld. The investigating officer (public entity -not a municipality) also refused to take a favorable statement from a witness who came forward and withheld additional witness interviews that supported my innocence from the official report, from the HR personnel and eventually the prosecutor. Alex took my case and felt I had a strong defense. I am sure he hears a lot of clients say they did not so something, but as a client is good to hear you are believed. After several trail delays, Alex was able to obtain an EOC report from this employer that seriously put into question my previous supervisor’s ethical behavior and leadership. Alex also obtained statements from all of the prosecutor’s witnesses which supported and confirmed I had committed no dishonest acts. He also gained the key statement that the items were given to me, did not belong to my employer, was not considered stolen and that this statement was given to the investigating officer. Given the unfavorable business records of my past supervisor outlined by the employer’s EOC report and the prosecutor’s witnesses only having positive things to say about me, Alex was able to get the prosecutor to agree to a full dismissal. Even if the charges were not dropped a few days before trial, I have the full confidence I would have been exonerated by a jury of my peers once Alex had the opportunity to enlighten them. I don’t think I will ever need council for legal defense again in my lifetime, but if I did - I would not hesitate to hire Alex again. I now look forward to working with his law firm and turning the tables and going forward with my own litigation for what this employer did to me.

    Alexander Floyd Ransom’s response: “I really enjoyed gaining full dismissals on ALL of the criminal charges. Although it took lots of research and investigating, the fruits of our labor won the day. We obtained business records showing the client's former supervisor has unethical business practices. And as client said, all of the witnesses were witlling to testify to clients honesty and veracity. Again, it was a pleasure. These kinds of cases inspire me to fight hard for my clients!”

    Beat my Forgery charges

    I'm glad I hired Alex Ransom. He helped me beat my forgery charges over some bs situation I got mixed up in. It was really bad because I was in danger of losing my career.

    Alex worked on my case for months. I did evertyhing he said. We put together a "merit package" which showed the other side I was not a criminal, and that I'm a real person who has done good things in my life, and I'm not just some bad person in a police report. Finally, we made a deal where I pled to a lesser charge. No jail, or probation. Alex saved my career, and I'm so thankful!

    Jury Liked Him

Cops come and arrest us for Burglary and we didn't take anything or go inside the house! Alex said let's have trial" and he was great! The jurys understood me and that I wasn't trying to steal I just tryed looking at cars. Alex was funny smart guy and the jurys got what he was saying. They said NOt GUILTY"! I was still guilty of Trespass and there werent no trespass sings but oh well. We beat Burglary which is felony.

    Not a DUI attorney

    Alex Ransom agreed to go to court for my battle with a DUI arrest. - I refused a street Breathalyzer (the officer had no reason to stop me) and was ultimately arrested. My breath test in jail was a 0.051. Mr. Ransom could not keep my license from being revoked administratively so I now have an interlock ignition. Mr. Ransom negotiated 2 years probation, a day in jail and a Negligent Driving 1. I stated that I wanted to go to trial, he stated that it would cost me another $10,000. I fired him and found an attorney who worked to get my DUI Dismissed! I regret ever working with Alex Ransom. He never returned my calls, never responded to emails or voice mails; and I did not call without a reason.

    Alexander Floyd Ransom’s response: “I remember this case. It's unfortunate this client is distraught, however, her statements need clarification. Under statute, a DUI defendant has 20 days from the date of the incident to seek an administrative hearing before the Department of Licensing (DOL). Unfortunately, if the defendant does NOT seek a DOL hearing, then their license is automatically suspended. In this client's case, she retained me after the 20 days already expired. Her license suspension was unavoidable. There was nothing I could do to prevent that. Second - and without getting too much into the case - her statements regarding the .05 BAC are not entirely accurate. She was ultimately charged with an upper-level "Refusal" DUI for failing to cooperate with the DUI processing. Her consequences were quite serious. Despite these challenges, I worked her case and negotiated a 3-step reduction from the upper-level DUI into Negligent Driving First Degree. We showed proof that her medical conditions made it extremely difficult to abide by the DUI investigation process. I convinced the prosecutor this was a bad case for them to take to trial. I also negotiated that probation would immediately go inactive. No jail. No DUI. Most people in her position would gladly accept the offer. However, she rejected the resolution and insisted on trial. She did not want to argue pretrial motions to dismiss the case or suppress evidence. She kept insisting on trial, which is typically viewed as a last resort. We discussed that option. Given the facts of the case - specifically, her numerous medical conditions - the best trial defense was Diminished Capacity. Under this defense, expert testimony must establish how the defendant's mental/physical condition impaired their ability to form the requisite level of intent to commit the crime. I contacted numerous doctors/physicians/counselors who would testify as experts to her medical condition(s). Unfortunately, these experts would cost around $10,000.00 dollars to testify on her behalf (the amount she mentioned above). Despite these realities, she inisted I conduct trial without getting experts. I refused to do so. Indeed, conducting trial without a viable defense would jeopardize the resolution we worked hard to achieve and expose me to Ineffective Assistance of Counsel claim if we lost. I was not prepared to risk my bar license under these circumstances. I explained this to her. She again rejected the option of arguing pretrial motion to suppress or dismiss evidence. I offered to exercise these options free of cost, and as part of my representation. Unfortunately, she terminated my representation. I had no choice but to withdraw from her case. I'm happy her case was dismissed by another attorney. Had we worked together longer, I undoubtedly would have achieved the same result via pretrial motion. This mishap could have been avoided. -Alex”

    Alexander Floyd Ransom’s response: “I was very pleased with the outcome. This was a bona-fide case about self defense. This client was attacked, and later, charged with Assault Second Degree. This is a VERY serious felony. The maximum sentence is 120 months (10 years) in prison. Additionally, the prosecutor threatened to add a Deadly Weapon Enhancement, thus exposing the client to an additional 36 months of prison if he lost at trial. I investigated the crime scene and discussed the case with witnesses. They supported client's story of self defense. Through careful negotiations, we reached a favorable resolution. No felony. No jail. No probation. No evaluations or treatment. This resolution avoided the time, expense and risk of trial. Again, I'm happy this resolved favorably! -Alex”

    Thank you very much Alex.

    Mr. Ransom helped me out with my first run-in with the law. The end results for the case were very satisfying. I feel like I have my life back on track. If you are feeling stressed out after your arrest, I recommend Mr. Ransom as your lawyer -- he will help you through it.

    extremely helpful in resolving my drug case

    I was charged with two federal misdemeanor drug charges. Through negotiation with the prosecution, Alex was able to get one charged thrown away and the other reduce to what bassically amounted to a hundred dollar fine. Thanks to Alex, I have a clean record, which was what I had hopes of when hiring him. He was both personable and knowledgeable which made him great to work with. I'd recommend him to any of my friends in the area in need of a good defense attorney. Thanks so much Alex!

    Cool lawyer and good outcome

    I got arrested for DUI and Reckless Driving. The truth is I went to a party and drank. I got chased out by my ex's jealous friends and boyfriend. Crashed my car. And it's worse because I'm applying for my citizenship! I hired Alex from Tario & Associates to handle the charges. I hired attorney Hannah Stone to help with citizenship stuff. They all pulled together and did their part. Alex followed Hannah's instructions and got the Reckless Driving dismissed. I got no probation. My citizenship status was saved! Hire these guys, they think three steps forward!

    He kept at it

    After over six months of going at it, Alex negotiated a dismissal for a third degree misdemeanor charge. He identified a strategy very early on and was persistent in contacting those with whom he needed to negotiate - which finally paid off. He was great at communicating my options and ensuring that I embraced his strategy. The only thing I would have wished that we would have communicated back to me more quickly about my need to reschedule a course date. I ended up spending a fair amount of my time leaving multiple messages - all it would have taken is a quick reply saying he was on it.
