HIT AND RUN DROPPED PRIOR TO SECOND TRIAL

Our client was charged based on a claim that he struck another vehicle in a parking lot.  He had a different attorney in lower court and was convicted and ordered to pay a fine and restitution.  We were hired to handle the appeal and immediately got to work investigating the case.  We discovered that the location of the damage and the relative size of the vehicles supported our client's story that he didn't realize that contact was made.  After presenting the evidence to the prosecutor, the case was dropped and our client walked away with a clean record and no court costs.

UNLAWFUL DISSEMINATION OF AN IMAGE DISMISSED AFTER TRIAL

Our client was charged under the so called "revenge pornography" law.  Our client had a different attorney in lower court and was convicted and received jail time.  We were hired to handle the appeal and filed motions arguing that the law is an unconstitutional infringement on the First Amendment.  After two different court dates worth of argument and legal briefs, the case was ultimately dismissed after we convinced the judge that the court did not have proper venue to hear the case.

MISDEMEANOR OBTAINING MONEY BY FALSE PRETENSE DISMISSED AFTER TRIAL

Our client innocently pawned a stolen item resulting in her being charged. We put on evidence casting serious doubt on whether she had stolen the property or knew that it was stolen. The final result was the charge being dismissed. It was a huge result for our client who would have faced a felony probation violation if convicted.

NOT GUILTY PROFANE LANGUAGE OVER PUBLIC AIRWAY AFTER TRIAL

Our client was charged after sending an angry text message with colorful language. We brought a mountain of case law proving that her statements were protected speech under the First Amendment. The judge agreed that while her language was offensive, it was Constitutionally protected and the charge was dismissed.

NOT GUILTY MAINTAINING A BAWDY HOUSE AFTER TRIAL

An innocent college party resulted in our client being charged with a class 1 misdemeanor when the police responded to a noise complaint. The city attorney tried to steamroll her into accepting a guilty plea with 50 hours of community service, apology letters, and court costs. We stood our ground, rejected the offer, and prepared for trial. The city attorney tapped out at the moment of truth, and our client walked out with a totally clean record, no fees, and no courts costs.
