DISCLAIMER – EACH CASE IS UNIQUE AND CASE RESULTS DEPEND ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL SITUATION. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE UNDERTAKEN BY THE LAWYER.

Below we feature a sampling of notable case results for March and April of 2021. We helped clients avoid reckless driving convictions for speeds as high as 98 mph and 95 mph and avoid jail for speeds as high as 100 mph. Clients also avoided misdemeanors for reckless driving for racing at 107 mph, failure to appear, no operator’s license, eluding the police, misdemeanor tunnel height violation, and more.
