Our client was arrested for a very serious assault allegation, and immediately contacted our office after getting released from jail. Through thorough investigation, negotiations and research, our client ultimately received a misdemeanor resolution with no jail, and will be able to vacate this conviction from his record. The felony (and life-long impacts of it) were avoided. http://ashbach.venbit.net/aggressive-assault-lawyer/
Recent Result – “Not Guilty” – Assault 4 DV jury trial. Our client was previously represented by another attorney, who said that this case was a “loser” and recommended our client plead guilty. Brian Ashbach took the case, investigated it thoroughly and came upon a viable, winning and unusual defense strategy. At the end of the two day trial, the jury found our client “not guilty” in less than an hour. http://ashbach.venbit.net/assault-and-domestic-violence/
Recent result – theft case dismissed – our client was charged with a shoplifting allegation against a major retailer. Our client had met with several attorneys prior to meeting us. Each of those attorneys told the client the case could not be dismissed based on the retailer. Having done several with this exact retailer, we knew it was possible. The case was dismissed on our client’s first court appearance. http://ashbach.venbit.net/theft-and-shoplifting/
