Description: Client involved in altercation with his live-in girlfriend. Girlfriend told police that client had strangled her multiple times, grabbed her by the neck and shook her, forced his knee into her head and covered her mouth to prevent her from screaming. Police examined girlfriend and found bruising on her neck and biceps. Client had fled the scene prior to police arriving. Client originally had another attorney who told client that the best offer he could get from the DA's office was for client to plead guilty and receive 90 days jail. We set the case for trial and the DA ultimately dismissed the case.
