It had been awhile since I’d gotten a hug from a client who was weeping with joy. But that changed today when I persuaded a judge to terminate the parental rights of my client’s abusive ex-boyfriend. She was very relieved when it was over and her parents were also ecstatic that their granddaughter would be protected. Today was a good day.
I spent a day in trial last week defending a civil law suit where my client was being accused by her mother’s ex of forging his signature. If we had lost she would have been on the hook for $15,000. Fortunately, the Court agreed with me that there was no proof she had ever touched the contract, and she won’t have to worry about paying off a judgement. I would fight just as hard for you.
I got yet another OWI thrown out this morning. The State had a pseudo scientist (called a D.R.E.) lined up to testify, but they folded when they saw I had an actual doctor.
A charge of assault against my client was dismissed after I pushed it to trial. Now my client has a huge monkey of his back and can move on the next thing: getting his job back!
