I call him Mike because he was a major part of my theatre program when he was a student at Patrick Henry High School and I was his teacher and director. He defended me last year when I was arrested for assault following a domestic situation. I was not guilty but was changed and had to go to court. Mike was at my side, and I'm here to tell you, no other lawyer could have done better for me. Not only do I admire his expertise as a lawyer, but I am also proud of him after having known him when he was in school.
The altercation that prompted the assault charge came from an attack on me from a homeless man who lived with my fiancée and me. He assaulted me and being afraid of him—he is in his early 50s, exceedingly strong, and I am 76, exceedingly weak—I grabbed a kitchen knife, which he promptly snatched from my hand. Police arrested me because I had brandished a knife and I was booked, but later released on an unsecured bond. The next day, after hearing the details, Mike came to our house and ordered the man off the premises. He refused to go, so Mike called the police and the man was "escorted" to jail. When it was over, I told my fiancée that nobody should mess with Mike.
His advice in court was excellent, to take the 5th, and he got the man in question to do the same. Therefore, since neither of us would testify, there was no case to hear, so the judge dismissed the case. I was so happy and so pleased with what Mike did.
If you need an attorney for any kind of litigation, Robert "Mike" Doherty is your man, the best there can be!
