Examples of Successful Case Outcomes
Complete Dismissal of Federal Charges After Indictment – We represented a former Wall Street broker and restaurateur indicted for fraudulently purchasing untaxed commodities. We subpoenaed all of our client’s cell phone records and those of all the people he called, texted, or emailed during a specific time range. We obtained the location of every single cell phone tower his communications connected with. We demonstrated to a scientific certainty that he was nowhere near the site of the purchase in question. The United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York dismissed all charges against our client, despite the fact that they indicted him.
Complete Dismissal of Federal Charges Prior to Indictment – We represented an immigration attorney investigated for fraudulently obtaining U.S. visas for foreign artists. Despite the fact that his former paralegal had pleaded guilty to felony fraud charges and was cooperating against our client, we persuaded the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York not to file any charges. Our client’s signature was on all visa applications as attorney and he worked directly with his paralegal on all matters. Nevertheless, by persistence, hard work, tenacity, and never giving up we were able to save our client. He practices law today.
Significant Settlement During Trial in Federal Civil Rights Case – We represented two young women who were youth workers at a secure state facility for troubled teenage girls. New York City police officers responded to a routine disturbance call at the facility and behaved as though they were members of a heavily armed SWAT team. They arrested our clients in a fashion we vigorously argued at trial was unlawful and unconstitutional. When the City’s Corporation Counsel that defended the rogue officers saw the skill and toughness with which we handled the trial they offered a significant six figure settlement to avoid a possibly much higher jury award. Our clients won their case, were vindicated by their day in court, and were able to be compensated for their pain and suffering.
