Not all cases are going to be grand larcenies, felonies, murders or any other huge crimes you may think of. Smaller charges can be just as important to retain representation. For example, Jerry recently represented a school bus driver who was issued a misdemeanor for allegedly driving without insurance and registration. He needs to be able to drive as his license and job are now all at stake. The driver hired King Law and was asked to send all material received from the insurance company, and DMV including his DMV receipts. Upon review, Jerry found he was had addressed the issue prior to ticket and was valid. Jerry then contacted the DA’s office, provided the proof, and asked to be dismissed. Within in one day, the DA’s office agreed he was innocent, and they asked The Court to dismiss charges. The lesson here is to always keep your receipts, you never know when you will need to proof your innocence.
In People v. P.G., the client was charged with one of the most serious white-collar offenses in New York, Enterprise Corruption. The police alleged that his property management company was used as a front for the distribution of illegal drugs. He faced up to 25 years in prison. We challenged the use of the enterprise corruption statute in this situation since the law was originally intended to fight the mob. After successfully challenging the enterprise corruption case, our client pled guilty to possession of marijuana and served four months jail and a term of probation.
Client is a 19-year-old who was accused of exchanging counterfeit money for real money at work. Prior to his arrest, he enlisted with the United States Marines but had not yet gone to boot camp. Thereafter, he was arrested on felony and misdemeanor charges. We met with him and his family and discussed the case and gathered detailed information about him personally. We then spoke with the District Attorney's Office on multiple occasions about the case and the circumstances outside of the case. After numerous discussions, the District Attorney's Office and Court dismissed the charges. Our client is expected to go to boot camp in the near future.
We recently represented an individual who had already pled guilty and was going through Drug Treatment Court. Things were not going well for him. Unfortunately, our client had already pled guilty to both felony and misdemeanor level crimes and was facing prison time for not successfully completing Drug Treatment Court. When we took over the file, it became apparent to us that this client didn't deserve a felony conviction for what he was accused of. After taking over the file, we provided information to the District Attorney's Office and to the Court which resulted in them allowing our client to withdraw his plea to the felony and receive a misdemeanor, despite the fact that he was not successful.
Our client is a college student and was charged with driving while ability impaired by alcohol. There were technical issues with the case paperwork and the case was dismissed at arraignment. We spoke with the Assistant District Attorney who advised they are not refiling. The case will remain dismissed.
Our client was provided with a work vehicle as part of his employment. He was working out of state for his employer and received notice that he was terminated from his position. He was told to turn the vehicle in immediately at the out of state location. About 24 hours later, our client turned in the vehicle at one of the employer's New York locations. His employer had already made a stolen vehicle report with the Police and after turning in the vehicle, our client was charged with Felony Criminal Possession of Stolen Property. After two Court appearances, the case was dismissed.
Our client was charged with misdemeanor Criminal Contempt for violating an Order of Protection. Upon reviewing the case, it was discovered that the police had issued a warrant for our client's arrest over six months earlier and made no efforts to arrest him. A motion to dismiss was granted in favor of our client for violating his rights to a speedy trial.
We represented a young man who was charged with a theft crime. Our client voluntarily entered inpatient treatment for chemical dependency, where he successfully completed the program. He then entered and was engaged in additional treatment through supportive living. We obtained numerous treatment updates and letters showing his progress. It was then negotiated that he would plead guilty by affidavit to a non-criminal outcome. It was a good outcome because it resulted in a non-criminal plea and he did not have to leave treatment to appear in Court.
We represented a college student who was accused of multiple Title IX violations at a local University. These Student Code of Conduct violations alleged various forms of domestic violence. However, during the investigation, we uncovered numerous inconsistencies in the allegations. A full Title IX hearing was conducted and our client was found not responsible and was able to return to finish his degree.
Our client was charged with Felony Grand Larceny and Felony DSS Fraud. Our client was accused of intentionally stealing from The Department of Social Services (DSS) and receiving $2,000 more than she should have. During the initial meeting with our client, King Law became aware of a confusing letter our client had received from DSS about changes in income and when it was necessary to disclose minor adjustments to income. We spoke with the District Attorney's Office and made them aware of the letter and also provided other pertinent information. Legally, we were prepared to argue in Court that our client did not have the intent to defraud. The letter was ambiguous and confusing, she thought she was handling the situation appropriately and consistent with the letter. We agreed that she may have over- received, but we did not agree that she purposefully and intentionally defrauded them.

The District Attorney agreed to resolve the case with a non-criminal outcome of Disorderly Conduct with restitution. Our client decided to accept the deal.
We represented a woman who lived in a very untenable situation with an aggressive and threatening neighbor. Despite having this information, the police charged our client with possession of a weapon for possessing a taser. After negotiations, the charge was appropriately dismissed.
We represented a client who was charged with multiple felonies while serving a sentence of felony probation. The evidence in the new cases and violation of probation case were strong for the prosecution due to the new charges and other alleged technical violations of the terms of probation. A concern in the violation of probation case was the lack of a right to a jury trial and the relaxed burden of proof for these types of hearings.
The Court and District Attorney's Office were taking a lengthy prison position at the
start of representation. One thing we looked at was the previous procedural background of the cases. We discovered that prior to probation, our client had been on interim (temporary) probation. Within the previous attorney's file, we noticed an agreement outlining if our client did not do well on temporary probation, he would have received a much shorter prison sentence than was being offered now. During negotiations, we argued that if our client was alleged to have committed a crime during temporary probation, he would have received the more lenient sentence. We argued that although there was no promise made for the full/regular probation sentence, the previous indicated sentence made more sense.

We argued that his sentence should not be further enhanced simply because it took longer for an alleged violation to occur. After numerous negotiations, it was agreed that our client would receive the more lenient sentence and that the new charges would also be significantly reduced.
Every so often, there are very serious cases that come about that are difficult to explain. Our firm previously represented a middle-aged female with no criminal history that was charged with Attempted Murder for the stabbing of co-worker. The incident was caught on surveillance camera and our client was facing up to 25 years in prison.

The surveillance video, however, did not tell the entire story. After meeting with the client and reviewing the police reports, our firm hired a psychiatrist to review the case, interview and potentially diagnose our client. After months of work and dedication to the case, our application to reduce the charge was not opposed by the District Attorney’s Office reducing the case to Attempted Assault and left her sentence up to the Judge. Our firm’s sentencing memorandum highlighted the issues we saw with the case, and provided expert medical testimony, which was a crucial in convincing the judge to give the minimum sentence allowed. Our client will serve about 2 years in jail, following sentencing.

When considering criminal cases, wins and losses cannot always be measured in guilty vs. not guilty trial verdicts. This was a successful outcome in the defense of our client.
