Our Results

We report primarily litigated results in courts of record, and do not include numerous non-judicial resolutions, preindictment matters, non-prosecution agreements, juvenile matters, and diversion agreements which we have been fortunate enough to help in obtaining. Please remember that our past results are not necessarily predictive of successful resolution of any prospective case. Criminal litigation is by its nature fraught with uncertainty; we want our clients to have a healthy outlook and reasonable expectations.
