Winning at Trial

The client came to the firm charged with assaulting someone at a bar. Efforts to resolve the matter through negotiation at the preliminary hearing were fruitless - the Commonwealth was determined to obtain a conviction against the client.

The Commonwealth also demanded $14,000 from the client for medical bills of the so-called victim in this case.

When the case came to trial, we were able to produce evidence for the jury, that the "victim" had been molesting women in the bar, and that he had swung first at the client. The jury agreed with us that the client had acted in self-defense, and returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY.

The client was thrilled.
