Success Stories

  • Client employee of a store charged with shoplifting from her employer $30,000. She was facing up to five years in jail. I got the case dismissed for lack of evidence.

  • Illegal substances found in client's vehicle searched subsequent to stop and arrest for driving while suspended. Client facing up to six months in jail. I got the case dismissed for illegal search and seizure.

  • Drug charge dismissed for lack of probable cause to effectuate a motor vehicle stop by police. Officer pulled client over because he looked suspicious to him while driving through a known drug area. Case dismissed following aggressive defense because it is unconstitutional for police to act on a hunch without reasonable suspicion.

  • Drug case dismissed after an illegal pat down by police. Through aggressive representation we were able to demonstrate to the court that the police did not have a reasonably articulable suspicion of criminal activity that would warrant a pat down. Consequently, all evidence recovered was inadmissible.

  • Client charged with violation of restraining order found not guilty after trial because of an aggressive defense that was mounted on client's behalf.

  • Client charged with second degree unlawful gun possession charge indictment dismissed after motion to dismiss filed and successfully argued on behalf of client.

  • Client charged with DUI and drug possession facing between 13 months to 31 months loss of license and up to six months in jail. Through aggressive advocacy and the engagement of an expert to help win the case, the drug charge was dismissed and client avoided jail while losing his license to drive for only three months.

  • Client facing up to one year loss of license for driving on a curb while under the influence (prescription medication). I got the case dismissed after convincing the prosecutor that without a drug recognition expert the state has no shot at winning.

Through my representation the driving while suspended was dismissed - lack of notice - and the no insurance charge downgraded to failure to exhibit without her having to lose her license.
