What began as a welcomed and long awaited family vacation soon turned to a nightmare. We were headed to Montana to visit our oldest son and taking a few of his possessions with us. Unknowingly to any of us, a piece of luggage held a souvenir in a small case that we should have checked in. At the terminal, I had asked our younger son to tag and carry this bag on the plane to manage its transport, all to avoid the $35 check in fee. At security the bag was flagged, souvenir discovered on x-ray, and he was detained and charged with a dangerous weapons misdemeanor. This could not be happening! I worked airport security 30+ years ago and could not accept the jeopardy we put upon our son, who has never been in trouble with the law.
Fortunately, authorities did not see my son as a Homeland Security threat, and we made our flight west. However, we knew we needed expert help upon our return, and I immediately called a family attorney for a referral. The referral to Frank Eaman, Super Lawyer, proved to be the answer. What is a Super Lawyer? The impeccable credentials aside, I was soon to find out!
To my amazement, I received immediate attention with a lengthy phone consult with Mr. Eaman, as he answered his line on the first call. His assurances were comforting, his analysis of the situation clear, and his follow up with us was also immediate. The court arraignment date was set to happen in a few weeks. It conflicted with his schedule, but he was confident his assistant could handle the case.
As time drew near the court date, Frank's assistant, Suzan Gabarra, relentlessly worked our case with the city attorney to reduce the charge. With us being 200 miles away, all of our interaction with Frank and Suzan occurred through phone calls and emails, and resulted in only a minor civil infraction and fine! This all couldn't have worked out better. With Suzan's expert help, our sons' record and reputation is not compromised, and the nightmare is over. I highly recommend the Frank Eaman law firm. While I know they handle much more complicated criminal matters, they tackled ours with the unparalleled competence, integrity, and professionalism, with which I felt was due our son for this unfortunate mistake. Heartfelt thanks to you both from all of us!
