2016 was a remarkable year for our office. This year, Pat received his Criminal Law Specialist Certification from the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. Not only does that put him in an exclusive category with less than 1% of lawyers California, Pat is also now the youngest Certified Specialist in the state.
Our office has become one of the premier criminal defense firms in the South Bay, and this year we had some very happy clients receive great results. Here are some highlights:
- We had 13 cases outright dismissed in court after criminal filings against our clients
- We had 7 cases which were being considered for filing which were rejected by the District Attorney’s Office
- We had all 5 motions to suppress evidence we filed granted (100 percent success), leading to dismissals of serious cases
- Most notably, a client looking at life in prison received a “NOT GUILTY” verdict by a jury after a lengthy jury trial
There are countless other great stories that came out of our cases this year and more are to come starting next week, but those statistics stand out the most. We are proud, but most importantly we couldn’t be happier for our clients who received the results they deserved.
With every client, we want you to feel like you are our only client even though we run a busy practice. Every concern, worry, and question you have about your case should be answered immediately and we aim to do that. If there is an issue, we will find it. If there is a legal battle to be fought, we will fight it. And most importantly, if you have been treated unjustly, we will expose that injustice.
We hope that everyone counts their blessings from 2016 despite the many tragedies experienced. We also hope you all have a safe, happy, and prosperous 2017!
