11/26/2018

County: Orange

Charge: Kidnapping with Intent to inflict Bodily Harm or Terrorize with a Firearm, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon

Result: All Charges Dismissed

Summary: People who are on the eve of trial and are unpleased (for any number of reasons) with their current attorney often contact Longwell Lawyers, scared and looking for better trial representation. Since beginning representation at such a late stage of litigation is not always a good idea (as it may put us and our clients at a significant disadvantage), we are often hesitant to take on these types of cases. Occasionally, though, the right case presents itself and we are able to take over a case at the last minute, diligently prepare for trial on an extremely truncated schedule, and maximize our client’s chances for a favorable result at trial. That was the case here. After having a full and frank discussion with the family regarding the pros and cons of changing attorneys at such a late stage of litigation, Longwell Lawyers agreed to take the case. Expert Criminal Trial Attorney, Benjamin Jones, and the team at Longwell Lawyers, worked overtime to take over a case, where the Defendant could be sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of at least 10 years in prison, with only 2 business days before trial was set to begin. Given this effort, Mr. Jones was able to stand firm, prepared to start a major trial, without delay, on the morning of trial. When it became clear that our client and his highly skilled and prepared lawyers were ready to proceed to trial, the prosecution chose to dismiss all charges.

Result: No Jail, No Probation, No Conviction

Summary: Law Enforcement caught our client, on camera, masturbating in front of a Starbucks. Despite threats of filing more serious charges that would result in mandatory lifetime registration as a “Sex Offender,” Longwell Lawyers was able to resolve our client’s case, quietly, without jail, without probation, and successfully avoid our client being convicted of anything.

County: Seminole

Charge: Sexual Battery (Rape)

Summary: Several days after giving one of his regular clients a massage, our Client, a masseur, found himself arrested, the subject of a local news expose, and fired from his job. He was facing allegations that he had sexually battered his client during a massage session. Confused, bewildered, and professing his innocence, our Client hired Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert, Benjamin Jones and the team at Longwell Lawyers to clear his name. Despite the current volatile climate regarding allegations of sexual misconduct and the #MeToo movement, our team was able to show the prosecution that the allegations were unfounded and that the accuser was not credible. Charges were never even filed and the case was closed.

Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Without Violence, Trespass After Warning

11/19/2018

County: Orange

Type of case/charge(s): Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Without Violence, Trespass After Warning

Summary: Client was part of a group of people at a local bar. A bouncer decided to eject a person from the group for being too intoxicated. Our client allegedly became confrontational and combative – ultimately leading to a confrontation with law enforcement. Our client was accused of using both hands to forcefully push a law enforcement officer, refusing to leave and resisting officers during the arrest. Longwell Lawyers got involved and thoroughly investigated the case, including getting subpoenas which were served on third parties to obtain all of the video evidence. Through that process, it was established that our client had not done anything wrong and never pushed an officer. Instead it was obvious that the bouncer was overly aggressive and combative with our client, and created an unnecessarily hostile and confrontational situation. Longwell Lawyers prepared the case for trial by taking depositions and filing pre-trial motions – which ultimately caused the State to drop the case.

Result: All charges dropped
