Brandishing a Firearm Acquittal!

People v. Client, 34th District Court (Romulus, Michigan)

Client was involved in a dispute with a neighbor.  The neighbor alleged that my client brandished a shotgun and threatened to shoot out a radio on the neighbor’s truck.  Something did not ad up.  The timing of the alleged events and the filing of the police report was bizarre.  My client was adamant that the neighbor fabricated this story in retaliation to a dog bite law suit that had been recently filed by my client against this neighbor.  My client was on felony probation in another jurisdiction and it was made clear that any type of conviction would mean a prison sentence on a probation violation. Trial was the only option.

At trial, the neighbor’s testimony was inconsistent with the testimony of her own son and my client’s wife and mother-in-law.  The additional fact of the recently filed dog bite suit sealed the deal.

Disposition: Not Guilty


Domestic Violence reduced to Disorderly Conduct!

People v. Client

Client was charged with Domestic Violence for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend’s son.  Client and his girlfriend contended that the allegation came from the son’s biological father who was jealous of the relationship.  After lengthy negotiations and multiple pre-trials, client agreed to a reduced plea of Disorderly Conduct.  After successfully completing probation his record would remain clear.

Disposition: Disorderly Conduct and Deferred Probation


Felony Conviction Avoided and No Probation!

People v. Client

Client came to me facing multiple charges in multiple jurisdictions.  The charges arose out of a traffic accident caused by my client.  The State alleged that he had ran from the accident without reporting it to police.  Once the police department made contact with my client he gave them the impression that his vehicle had been stolen and that he did not cause the accident.  To complicate matters further, this alleged false report of a felony happened in a separate prosecutor’s jurisdiction.  My client now faced misdemeanor accident related charges in one county and felony false reporting charges in a separate county with the possibility of substantial incarceration.

After months of lengthy negotiations with multiple police officers prosecutors, and their supervisors my client walked out of court with two low misdemeanor convictions and a minimal sentence of fines and  no probation!

Disposition: Failing to Report an Accident and False Report of a Misdemeanor


Case Dismissed!

People v. Client

Client came to me facing one count of retail fraud.  Client was concerned about the impact of a conviction on their immigration status as well as their employment in the future.

Disposition: Case dismissed after completion of community service.


Conviction avoided!

People v. Client

Felony Charge Reduced to Misdemeanor then Dismissed after Successfully Completing Probation!
