CASE VICTORIES

Murder

Client was sentenced to natural life in prison for first degree murder.  Lisa discovered that the cell phone records which supposedly placed him outside pounding on the victim’s door only two minutes before she was shot in the head were actually recorded in Eastern Standard Time, not Arizona Time.  In other words, the cell phone call occurred at 10:58 p.m. Arizona Time the night before the victim was murdered and not 1:58 a.m. only two minutes before she was killed.  A Maricopa County Superior Court judge overturned his conviction for first degree murder.

 

Aggravated Assault

Client was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for an aggravated assault where he supposedly broke the victim’s nose.  Lisa investigated whether the victim’s nose was really broken and discovered that her nose was merely bruised.   Lisa prepared a Petition for Post-Conviction Relief.  The Court resentenced Client to 2 years in prison.

 

Federal Fraud

Client was facing 2.5 years in federal prison for federal fraud.  Lisa took over the case and obtained a sentence of probation.

 

Sexual Conduct with a Minor 

Client was charged with two counts of attempted sexual conduct with his minor daughter that had allegedly occurred over 14 years ago.  Lisa prepared a motion to dismiss based on the statute of limitations having passed which resulted in dismissal of the charges.

 

Sexual Conduct with a Minor

Client was charged with one count of sexual abuse, two counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of attempted child molestation where the victim was his minor daughter.  Lisa prepared a response opposing the State’s Notice of Intent to Introduce evidence of Client’s prior bad acts and evidence that Client had a character trait giving rise to an aberrant sexual propensity to commit the charged offenses.  The Court denied the State’s Notice which resulted in the State offering a significantly better plea offer to Client.

 

Drug Dealing 

Client was a heroin dealer charged with two counts of being a prohibited possessor, two counts of possession of heroin, two counts of possession of methamphetamine, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.  Lisa prepared two motions to suppress the evidence based on invalid search warrants which persuaded the State to ask for 5 years in prison instead of 10.

 

DUI

Client was charged with a second misdemeanor DUI within a few months of his first misdemeanor DUI.  Lisa obtained a plea where the State dismissed the DUI charge and client pled to civil traffic tickets.

Sex Offender Probation Termination

When client was stopped for a DUI, the police found some computer images of child porn in the trunk of client’s car.  Client was sentenced to lifetime sex offender probation for attempted sexual exploitation of a minor.  After only six years on probation, the Court granted his Petition to Terminate Lifetime Sex Offender Probation that Lisa prepared.

 

Sex Offender Probation Termination

Client immediately turned himself in to the police after fondling his stepdaughters in 1997.   He was sentenced to lifetime sex offender probation for 1 count attempted child molestation and 1 count sexual abuse.  After only ten years on probation, the Court granted his Petition to Terminate Lifetime Sex Offender Probation that Lisa prepared.

 

Sex Offender Probation Termination

Client was a Vietnam veteran who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and was a diagnosed pedophile who had pled to two counts of attempted child molestation in 1996.  Despite 13 years with no new criminal charges and excellent progress in therapy, Client’s probation officer vehemently opposed the termination.  Lisa prepared his Petition to Terminate Lifetime Sex Offender Probation which the Court granted.

 

Sex Offender Probation Termination

Client was sentenced to lifetime sex offender probation because he exposed and fondled himself in front of his young children while he was drunk.  Lisa prepared his Petition to Terminate Lifetime Sex Offender Probation which the Court granted.

Meth Possession

Client was charged with possession of meth and drug paraphernalia while on pretrial release for a pending drug charge in 2016 and possession of meth and drug paraphernalia while on work furlough from jail in 2017.  The State wanted jail time and four years of probation.  Lisa persuaded the judge to sentence her to no jail time and two years of probation.
