State v. CT
False Report to 911 & Resisting Dismissed!
Our client was being evicted and she believed the eviction to be unlawful.
Our client called the police after she discovered her landlord throwing
her property everywhere. Our client called the police and was told it
was a civil matter. As things escalated, our client called the police
again to report this. When she called the police a second time, the police
came out in full force to arrest her for making a false report to 911.
More than one officer grabbed her, she pulled away from them. As a result,
she was charged with Disorderly Conduct (for making the false police report)
and with Resisting a Peace Officer (for pulling away). The State wanted
jail and community service work from our client, but there was no way
we would let that slide! When most lawyers would be trying to get a "deal"
because it was our client's word against multiple people, including
police, we worked with our client, documented the unlawful eviction and
the unlawful treatment by her landlord, and formulated a defense. Result:
we got the case dismissed entirely in just 2 months!
State v. MF
Our client was charged with Domestic Battery to a Child. In what we argued
was clearly an exaggerated charge, JLG defended this case aggressively.
The State demanded our client have a felony conviction along with having
to register as a violent offender against youth and other conditions.
We made it clear that we would not be accepting any offer and demanded
a trial. We set the matter for trial and on the day of the trial the State
dismissed the charges.
State v. ZS
Our client, a young man but still an adult was charged with 10 counts of
possession of child pornography. Facing 70 years potentially with consecutive
sentences, JLG went to work and as the case dragged on, the state was
still demanding prison. Over time, we fought aggressively and would eventually
go to a contested hearing where again the State asked for prison. By providing
extensive mitigation, we were able to convince the Judge to give our client
probation with time served.
State v. CG
Our client was charged with a very serious charge of Armed Robbery. The
prosecutor in the case wanted 8 years. After negotiations broke down,
JLG took our argument to the judge where we were able to convince the
Judge to give our clients probation.
State v. CG
A client dissatisfied with her former attorney hired us to represent her
at her sentencing for a DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. At the
time of her arrest, she had a blood alcohol content of .402. We argued
passionately on her behalf, that the night of her DUI did not define who
she was as a person and that given her outstanding history and what she
had achieved since that night she deserved a second chance, she deserved
another chance for being a good person. The judge stated that normally
someone in our client's position would go directly to jail and have
their license revoked. But the judge saw her case differently. In the
end, she was able to keep her license and placed on court supervision.
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!
