Fifteen years ago, I was accused of an unspeakable crime at the tail end of a domestic spousal argument lasting several weeks. At the time, I was investigated and questioned, and charges never filed. The police (at the time) saw the writing on the wall... "I didn't do it."
Thirteen years after the initial investigation, and after moving on with my life, charges were suddenly filed from that old case. I discovered that a warrant was issued for my arrest, and with the help of Tony (Anthony Muhlenkamp), I learned what I was facing (a minimum of 10 years in prison for something that I didn't do). He helped reduce my bond so I could continue my daily life and work routine, navigated through the legal aspects of my situation, and (most importantly) kept me informed of all aspects of the case over the next twenty months while preparing for trial.
Due to the uniqueness of the case, and the accusations, it took a day and a half to actually choose the jury. The actual trial took less time. Regardless, the jury saw the writing on the wall, too. It only took an hour for the jurors to come to a unanimous "Not guilty" verdict.
Looking back at the last twenty months, I'm very impressed with how Tony handled my case. From the initial conversation in his office, he was evaluating the details and working on the best way to defend me. He kept me focused, and pushed aside all of my speculations and guesswork about motive. We didn't have to prove the why of the accusations; Just that I didn't do it.
His preparation before trial was extremely thorough, covering every possible aspect. During the trial, he seemed to know what the prosecutor was going to say, or do, before it even happened. His objections and total domination over the prosecutor during the trial were extremely impressive. Our preparation for my defense on the stand was thorough and well planned, as well. I didn't realize, until on the stand, that we needed to work together. I was not in this alone, which is what I really felt like in the beginning. Upon that realization, I took a big risk in bringing up an aspect of the case that was not really what we prepared for. But, I felt it was an important aspect, considering the age and dynamics of the case, and went with it. The judge asked the jury to strike that comment from the record, but the deeper dynamics of the case were in the open now. After the initial frustration/shock of my candidness, Tony and I worked together during the rest of my time on the stand, and it went very well. I don't recommend doing/saying something unplanned, but I'd say it was a grand slam in this situation.
Bottom line, Tony knows what he's doing, and there is no other person I would have wanted to defend me.

Anthony has helped with a few minor cases in the past few years. He is always prompt, easily available and trustworthy. He quoted me a fair rate upfront and then delivered on expectations he set. He would recommend Anthony to anyone who needs legal assistance.

Tony has helped myself, family, and close friends in our time of need. His combination of interpersonal skills and fierce advocacy, along with a strong, respected reputation with the area judges and prosecutors, allows him to obtain the best possible results for his clients. I would strongly recommend you hire Tony.
