After years of litigation, the Commonwealth in Virginia agreed to drop all rape charges against our client. Our firm used cutting edge experts to show that our client did not have the requisite intent necessary to commit the crime.

Child Molestation

Georgia v. C.R.

Our client was facing a stiff mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years. We were able to convince the judge to grant her safety-valve and a sentence of straight probation.

Our client was charged with possession after law enforcement executed a search warrant. We convinced prosecutors that the search was unlawful and that any alleged evidence seized by law enforcement was inadmissible.
