Arranging a Meeting with a Minor for Lewd Purposes- PROBATION, NO JAIL, NO SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION

Client was charged with arranging a meeting with a minor for lewd purposes. Client was exchanging text messages and emails with an undercover officer who he allegedly believed to be a minor. The prosecution argued that the Client intended to engage in sexual intercourse and oral copulation with a person whom he believed to be a minor at the time. Upon extensive negotiations with the prosecution, we resolved the case so that Client received NO JAIL TIME, PROBATION, and NO LIFETIME SEX REGISTRATION.

Lewd or Lascivious Acts on a Minor- Probation, NO JAIL TIME.

Client was charged with several counts of lewd or lascivious acts on a minor who was under 14 years of age at the time of the alleged incident. The prosecution argued that Client, a sports coach, groomed the victim and initiated an inappropriate relationship with his student. These types of serious charges and allegations very rarely resolve for anything less than prison. After negotiations with the prosecution and thorough defense investigation, Client ultimately received a grant of probation and no incarceration in custody.

Temporary Restraining Order- CASE DISMISSED

Client hired me to defend against a temporary restraining order. The petitioner (the person who filed the temporary restraining order against client) alleged that my client had forcefully raped her on numerous occasions. After I cross-examined the petitioner, in addition to presenting defense witnesses, the court did not believe that the petitioner had met their burden of proof. The court dismissed the restraining order with prejudice. Case dismissed.

Temporary Restraining Order - CASE DISMISSED

Client was served with a temporary restraining order. The respondent alleged that Client was harassing her and the rest of her family.

Temporary Restraining Order - Granted on behalf of Client

Client filed a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband three times. The first time, Client decided not to go forward against her then husband. The second time, Client petitioned the court for a permanent restraining order against her ex-husband. I was not her attorney at the time. After a trial, the Court did not grant her request and her petition was denied. On the third instance, Client retained me to represent her in obtaining a permanent restraining order against her ex-husband. The harassment and abuse would not end and Client sought protection from the court in obtaining a permanent order. After trial, the court agreed with our position and granted our request for a permanent restraining order.

Temporary Restraining Order - CASE DISMISSED

Client was served with a temporary restraining order. In response, I advised her that we should file a cross-temporary restraining order against petitioner. Our cross-temporary restraining order was granted. Upon being served, the petitioner decided to drop the case and not proceed with the hearing. The restraining order was dismissed.

Client was apprehended by law enforcement because he happened to be standing next to a vehicle which was getting pulled over for a traffic violation. Upon police contact, Client allegedly dropped an envelope containing approximately $1000 of counterfeit currency. An officer looked at the currency and determined that it was possibly counterfeit; subsequently, Client was arrested for possession of counterfeit money. After trial, the jury acquitted my client and voted NOT GUILTY. Client was able to maintain his taxi cab license and to keep his job due to the acquittal on the felony charge.
