GIVING A VOICE TO THE WRONGFULLY ACCUSED

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE RIGHT ATTORNEY-CLIENT PARTNERSHIP

This Criminal Defense and Military Defense law firm handles a broad spectrum of criminal cases involving everything from drug possession to murder. The case results below represent a small sampling of how this law firm serves the people of Richmond Hill, Hinesville, Savannah, Georgia and the surrounding areas with strategic, competent and zealous representation.

Child Molestation – Full Acquittal

Location, Branch: Evans County Superior Court
Case Type: Jury Trial

RESULT: In a case where the client was charged with two counts of child molestation, Brad was able to show the jury that the child’s testimony was influenced by a family member as well as a “child forensic interviewer.” Despite the client’s statements to a trained polygraph examiner with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Brad was able to show through cross examination that the polygraph examiner had used a technique call the “Reid Technique” to coerce the client into making incriminatory statements that simply weren’t true. Having seen the fallacies of the State’s case, the jury returned a unanimous verdict that the client was NOT GUILTY of both counts.

Officer Board of Inquiry – Retained

Location, Branch: Fort Stewart
Case Type: Officer Board of Inquiry

RESULT: In a case where the client was arrested for DUI several years prior, and had received a permanently filed GOMOR, Brad was able to convince the board of inquiry to retain the officer client in the Army, allowing him to proceed towards retirement.

Illegal Hunting – Directed Verdict

Location, Branch: Evans County State Court
Case Type: Bench Trial

RESULT: In a case where the client was charged with illegally hunting big game without a license, Brad was successfully able to object to the admissibility of hearsay testimony. Given that this testimony formed the sole basis of the State’s case, Brad moved for a directed verdict (meaning that the State had failed to put on enough evidence to even proceed to a verdict). The judge granted Brad’s motion and immediately dismissed all of the charges.

Enlisted Separation Board – Retained for MEB Processing

Location, Branch: Fort Stewart
Case Type: Enlisted Separation Board

RESULT: In a case where the client was notified of separation from the Army for missing movement and disrespect, Brad was able to show how the command had negligently failed to care for the Soldier during his time in need. The board initially suspended the separation, and Brad was able to convince the separation authority to process the client through Medical Evaluation Board channels, rather than involuntary separation channels. Now, the client is medically retired.

DUI and Drug Possession – Dropped to Reckless Driving

Location, Branch: Tybee Island Municipal Court

RESULT: In a case where the client was arrested for DUI Less Safe-Drugs, misdemeanor possession of marijuana, and speeding, Brad was able to convince the prosecutor to drop the DUI charge, allowing the client to avoid loss of his driver’s license. This was due, in part, to Brad pointing out that the arresting officer had failed to conduct a proper field sobriety test, and that the results of the blood testing were unlikely to result in a showing of intoxication. He also convinced the prosecutor and judge to conditionally discharge the drug possession charge, meaning that after completion of the conditional discharge program, the client will not have a drug conviction. Ultimately, this resulted in the client walking away with only two misdemeanor traffic violations.

DUI Less Safe – Alcohol – Dropped to Reckless Driving

Location, Branch: Chatham County Recorders Court

RESULT: In a case where the client was arrested for DUI Less Safe (alcohol) and speeding, Brad was able to convince the prosecutor to drop the DUI charge down to reckless driving. Brad was able to tell the client’s story and convinced the judge and prosecutor to allow him to proceed under the First Offenders Act, meaning that after completion of the probated sentence, the client would have no record of conviction. While this approach is not suited for everyone, Brad knew his client’s personal situation, and he knew that this would ultimately result in the best possible outcome for the client. The client was able to keep his security clearance, his driver’s license, and his clean record.

Simple Battery/Family Violence – Pre-trial Diversion

Location, Branch: Liberty County State Court

RESULT: In a case where the client was arrested for simple batter/family violence for allegedly striking his family member, Brad was able to convince the prosecutor to allow the client to proceed with a pre-trial diversion program. After completing a class on anger management and paying court costs, the client’s charges were entirely DISMISSED. Brad was able to obtain this result by spending plenty of time with the client and his family in an effort to learn the true story. This enabled Brad to present ALL of the mitigating facts to the prosecutor. Now the client will be able to finish his Army career all the way to retirement.

General Court-Martial – No Dismissal

Location, Branch: Fort Stewart

RESULT: In a General Court-Martial in which the client pleaded guilty to adultery and violation of a lawful order, Brad was able to convince the military judge to not issue a dismissal as a part of the sentence. Brad told the entire story of the client’s commendable service, as well as his poor treatment by his command. Ultimately, the judge issued a sentence of time served with no dismissal, allowing the client to continue to serve in the Army.
