NOT GUILTY 

ASSAULT AND BATTERY

Our client was charged after a co-worker claimed that he was struck during an altercation at work. We interviewed and subpoenaed an independent witness who confirmed that the co-worker was the aggressor and instigated the situation. After hearing the testimony, the judge agreed that there was reasonable doubt and the charge was dismissed.

MISDEMEANOR BENCH TRIAL

2 COUNTS ASSAULT AND BATTERY LAW ENFORCEMENT DROPPED

Our client was charged with two felonies carrying a combined mandatory minimum of 1 year behind bars.  Needless to say, it was an extremely stressful situation for our client.  We spent hours viewing video security footage and identified key portions that contradicted the official version of events. Prior to a jury trial, the prosecutors did the right thing and agreed to drop the charges.  We were beyond thrilled for our client.

NOT GUILTY ASSAULT AND BATTERY, STALKING, AND TRESPASSING

Our client's ex-boyfriend made a series of false allegations after she broke things off with him. Through a tough cross-examination, we were able to show numerous inconsistencies with his version of events. The judge agreed that his testimony was not credible and dismissed all charges.

MISDEMEANOR BENCH TRIAL

TWO COUNTS MALICIOUS WOUNDING, ASSAULT AND BATTERY ALL DROPPED

Our client was charged with stabbing two people and assaulting a third person during an altercation outside an oceanfront bar.  We were confident that we could prove that our client acted in self-defense and scheduled the case for a jury trial.  The prosecution offered multiple plea offers but we stood firm.  Before the scheduled trial date, the prosecution dropped all of the charges and our client avoided felonies and serious jail time.

FELONY JURY TRIAL

ALL CHARGED DROPPED PRIOR TO TRIAL

2 COUNTS ASSAULT AND BATTERY LAW ENFORCEMENT REDUCED TO MISDEMEANORS AFTER TRIAL

Our client faced a mandatory one year in jail. Even worse he was here on a green card and faced likely deportation.  He was desperate.  He had been in the U.S. for over a decade and had a wife and children who were American citizens.  Despite our best efforts, the prosecution refused to work with us to reduce the charges.  We took the case to trial and after fighting tirelessly we were able to convince the judge to find him guilty of disorderly conduct and to give him a sentence that would not effect his immigration status.
