Our client was facing 25 years to life for his sixth DWI. As you might imagine, the prosecutors wanted to send him away forever. But we filed a motion to quash the indictment for lack of a speedy trial and had the case thrown out. The State appealed the dismissal but we won that as well.
An individual we represented was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a first-degree felony punishable by five to 99 years or life in prison. The prosecutors thought they had a strong case because of statements our client made to the police. But we filed a motion to suppress, arguing that he was illegally interrogated. Our victory at the hearing led to dismissal of the case.
The client we represented was facing a felony DWI and the prospect of a felony conviction following him around for the rest of his life. We filed a motion to suppress, arguing that the police had no right to stop his car that night. The judge agreed and dismissed the case.
Our client faced accusations of assault family violence, a charge that can result in up to a year in jail and a lifetime ban on the purchase or possession of firearms. We took the case to trial, arguing our client acted in self-defense and highlighting all of the inconsistencies in the state's story. We won the case.
After the car she and others were traveling in was involved in an accident, our client was charged with a felony DWI. But we filed a motion to suppress, arguing that the police had no probable cause to believe our client was intoxicated or that she was even the one driving the car. The judge agreed. The state appealed the decision, but we won that as well and the case was dismissed.
