State v. JE
Our client was charged in one felony case with Conspiracy to Commit a Robbery
of a Financial Institution, felony Disorderly Conduct after a Bomb Threat,
in another felony case with Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance,
and with a Petition to Revoke her probation for an earlier felony Unlawful
Possession of a Controlled Substance. Needless to say, the State wanted
only prison time, and wouldn't be satisified with anything less after
she and a co-defendant allegedly phoned in a bomb threat trying to rob
a bank! We worked together as part of a team, built an airtight strategy,
and immediately got to work. In the end, our client's co-defendant,
who was represented by another attorney, went to prison, while our client
was sentenced to probation for everything, and time served!
State v. SM
Our client had a serious drug problem. In just a few months, she had picked
up a DUI, major traffic, and 4 felony cases, some for felonies related
to possession of controlled substances and delivery of controlled substances,
and some of these cases required a prison sentence. She faced more than
a decade in prison, and, to make matters worse, the sentence on the cases
would have to be served consecutively, meaning she would have to serve
them one after the other, instead of all together. We worked together,
formed a strategy, but after convincing the State to dismiss the felony
counts that required a prison sentence, they refused to dismiss any other
felonies. We had to leave our client's fate up to a judge. Thanks
to our strategy and effort, our client got time-served, was sentenced
to probation, and never went to prison!
State v. KB
Our client had been arrested on several felonies, some of which required
a prison sentence, and, because they were committed while he was out on
bond, they were all consecutive to each other. The State wanted nothing
but blood. We put to work a strategy and airtight defense, and successfully
talked the State into dismissing all but 3 of the felonies. However, the
State was not willing to agree to probation. We had to leave the sentence
up to the judge, which was risky, but with the strategy we formulated,
better than a mandatory prison sentence had we not talked the State into
what we did. Result: our client received credit for time-served, never
went to prison, and got probation instead on all of the felony cases!
State v. GS
Our client was driving at a time his license was suspended and was stopped
for speeding. To make matters worse, police discovered cocaine in the
car, resulting in our client facing felony charges as well as the traffic
offenses. Because of our client's significant criminal history that
included drug offenses, the State would have been more than happy with
a lengthy prison sentence. However, we were able to talk the State into
agreeing to probation and 90 days jail, instead of the prison sentence
they originally wanted! Unfortunately, our client decided to hire another
attorney because he did not want to serve any time, and, unfortunately
with this other attorney, he was sentenced to more than one year in prison.
The lesson here is when you hire the best, stick with the best.
State v. VR
Our client was charged with 6 counts related to possession of drugs with
intent to deliver, and faced a minimum sentence of 6 to 30 years in prison
because of the seriousness of the offenses. Our client was only a kid,
and had no other significant criminal history. The State would only settle
for prison, and even made our client pay $50,000 to get out of jail. We
worked as a team, and realized before the State did that there were problems
with the case that could help us.
Result: 5 months after being hired, we were successful in getting the case
State v. JS
Our client was charged with some pretty bad counts involving felony Aggravated
Criminal Sexual Abuse after he had sex with a 14 year-old girl at a time
when he was 28 years-old. To make matters worse for our client, he was
on felony probation at the time. The alleged victim's family and the
State was out for blood, and only wanted years and years in prison. We
got to work right away, and, with our client's future at stake, we
had no choice but to leave matters up to the judge.
Result: Probation, and no jail!
