Home Case Studies


Janie and her live-in boyfriend, Tim, had a stormy relationship. Tim was very bossy and controlling, even though they lived in Janie's house and she paid all the bills.

Tim had been abusive toward Janie on more than one occasion. But getting Tim out of her house had been more than Janie had been able to accomplish so far.

But now Tim had just gone too far, stealing from her. Fueled by her anger, Janie demanded that Tim move out.

Tim could tell something was different this time, but he refused to move out. He had nowhere to go - and no money - and a child who stayed with them sometimes.

Janie told Tim he was making a big mistake. That's when Tim picked up the phone and called 911.

Tim had been around the block and had had his share of run-ins with the law. He was no stranger to the "system".

As Janie watched, uncomprehending, Tim "socked" himself in the face, to create a bruise. And bruise it did.

When the police arrived, Tim pressed criminal domestic violence charges against Janie, specifically, criminal domestic battery, a misdemeanor offense.

And the cops took Janie away from her home - and left Tim in her house. This couldn't be happening!

Janie was kind of sheltered and she was beside herself after spending the weekend in jail. It wasn't for her.

But Janie was also angry and wanted to get acquitted, vindicated.

Janie retained me as her criminal domestic violence defense attorney for her defense in criminal court.

After the papers I filed for Janie's arraignment, things went even better than she had hoped. The state dropped its case even before she was formally charged.

Despite her righteous anger, Janie was happy and relieved it was all over, especially since she was cleared.

NOTE: Every case is different. Just because Janie achieved this outcome doesn't mean that your case will.
