RELATED SUCCESS STORIES

Juvenile charged as an adult, faces deportation

Case: Our client, a 15-year-old undocumented immigrant, was charged as an adult for allegedly stabbing a man in a Financial District alley. He faced 12 years in state prison. The head of the San Francisco District Attorney’s Gang Unit was personally prosecuting his case.

Results: Our office was able to get the case reassigned to juvenile court, allowing the client to avoid a “strike” and to stay in the country.

DUI with great bodily injury

Case: Our client was charged with DUI with great bodily injury following a car accident in San Mateo County. The complaining witness was hospitalized for several days and was briefly in a coma.

Results: Case dismissed after our office successfully argued that the district attorney failed to prove his client was driving or that the victim suffered great bodily injury connected to the accident.
