Client accused of attempting to run over a family member of an ex during custody fight. Massive collateral consequences in custody issue in family court. Criminal risk = 6 months jail, 3 years probation, $2,500 fine plus surcharge, $20,000 restitution request for medical bills. Deep investigation including accident reconstruction, family court custody case research, adversarial witness interviews, site visits, recording analysis, police interviews. Interviews of police impeached victim and witness credibility and aggression issues, non-existent injuries per first responders, inconsistent injuries compared to accident reconstruction, past history of dishonesty in court proceedings. Day of trial, interview police again and convinced prosecution that their case was unjust and would lose. Over objection of irate victim, prosecution dismissed the case. Very proud of this outcome.
