Charges Dropped

Our client, who was already on felony probation and who was sitting in jail with no bond when our office was hired, was charged with starting a fight with his wife that according to her turned into him choking her, a felony in Florida. The Defense conducted a swift, yet thorough investigation in an effort to discredit the “victim” and portray her as a disgruntled woman trying to gain leverage in future divorce proceedings, which is exactly what she was trying to accomplish. The defense drafted and filed a persuasive Motion to Set Bond, secured a hearing within days of being hired by the client’s family, initiated negotiations with the State and informed them of the results of its investigation.  The State elected not to file formal charges on the new felony, probation was reinstated, and our client was released from custody.
