I was part of the trial team that fought a challenging sexual battery case where the client faced mandatory life in prison. I prepared this case with a co-counsel for a year, doing everything from investigation to depositions to the jury trial. The jury came back with a Not Guilty verdict in just 90 minutes.
I represented someone facing charges for driving under the influence of alcohol. This individual was not a citizen of the United States and had the additional risk of immigration consequences if found guilty. I pursued a motion to suppress because the officer misled the client intentionally. The motion to suppress was granted. The Government had no choice but to dismiss all charges. In addition to this favorable result, the transcript from the hearing is a Brady disclosure. This means that because the officer was dishonest, the transcript from the motion to suppress hearing is disclosed every time the officer is a witness in any other case.
I was part of the team that pursued a motion to suppress the identification of an innocent, mentally ill young man. The client was facing a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison if found guilty. After the motion to suppress, the Government dropped all charges.
