Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon Case Dismissed Mark this as the second time in recent memory that I have had an unlawful carrying of a weapon case dismissed on trial day, and boy was I ready to try this case.  I put in all the hard work, like any good criminal defense lawyer would, to…

HIRING A LAWYER SERIES: FINANCING PAYMENT OPTIONS Hiring an attorney is almost always going to be a scary task.  For most people, hiring a criminal defense attorney is going to be a onetime deal, and you want to make sure you do it right.  On one hand, you are thinking about yourself or your loved…

NECESSITY DEFENSE Trespassing Case Dismissed With Use Of Necessity Defense I recently won a dismissal in a trespassing case using the necessity defense.  The state might not have admitted it on the dismissal form, but these things happen.  My client was charged with trespassing for being on a property where she was not supposed to…
