DISCLAIMER: The results are specific to the facts and legal circumstances of each of the clients’ cases and should not be used to form an expectation that the same results could be obtained for other clients in similar matters without reference to the specific factual and legal circumstances of each client’s case.
My client thought she was happily married until one day she received a phone call from a woman who turned out to be her husband’s girlfriend. The call started out with my client enduring a slew of verbal insults. To make matters worse she was sent emails with pictures of the woman sprawled out naked laying across my client’s bed. My client felt betrayed, humiliated and violated.
Apparently, my client’s two-timing husband had no idea that his girlfriend had called. When he arrived home, all hell broke loose. Neighbor’s heard lots of screaming and things being broken. Someone called the police. By the time the cops came, my client and her now soon-to-be ex-husband had gotten into a tussle. My client was accused of clobbering him over the head with the leg of a table. She was cuffed and stuffed into the squad car and hauled off to jail.
After getting her bonded out of jail (special rules apply to posting bond in domestic violence cases), we set about the task of investigating the the entire incident. My client’s husband chose not to aire his philandering ways and I was able to persuade the State Attorney’s Office to drop the charges. The process of having the case removed from my client’s record is under way.
RESULT: Domestic Violence case dropped.
