FELONY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE BATTERY CHARGE DROPPED
Felony Charge Dropped
Orange County, Florida - Client was charged with felony domestic violence
battery and faced up to 5 years in prison. Longwell Lawyers prepared the
case for trial by scrutinizing the discovery, taking depositions, and
filing/setting a “Stand your Ground” motion. The client accepted
a deal to a misdemeanor charge with no conviction and no jail. The State
dropped the felony charge.
FINAL JUDGMENT OF INJUNCTION CORRECTED

had an incorrect expiration date, which extended the injunction an additional
5 months. Longwell Lawyers filed a Motion to Correct Scrivener’s
Error, which was granted. Final Judgment of Injunction was revised to
reflect an accurate expiration date.
MOTION FOR EARLY TERMINATION OF FELONY PROBATION GRANTED

Lawyers filed a motion to early terminate the probation and prevailed
at the hearing, despite the State’s objection.
GUN CHARGES DROPPED
Seminole County, Florida - Our client was accused of drunkenly discharging
firearms in a residential neighborhood, resulting in two criminal charges.
Longwell Lawyers was able to convince the State to drop one charge of
unlawfully discharging the firearm in a residential neighborhood, but
the State did initially persist on the Possession of a Firearm While Intoxicated
charge. Ultimately, the State agreed to drop that charge too once the
client agreed to take a gun safety course.
FELONY VOP SUCCESFULLY RESOLVED
No Conviction, Probation Terminated

from jail, and probation was terminated.
DCF CASE CLOSED IN FAVOR OF CLIENT

Brevard County, Florida - Client was the subject of a DCF investigation.
Longwell Lawyers advocated for the client and brought up several issues
to DCF that showed that our client should continue to have 50/50 with
the child and not supervised time-sharing, as had been sought. DCF case
closed at Judicial Review hearing and client resumed 50/50 time-sharing.
FULL AGREEMENT IN PATERNITY ACTION
Secure Fair Parenting Plan

to a confidential informant, Client got re-arrested for a second sale
of methamphetamine to another confidential informant and possession of
marijuana. Attorney Benjamin Jones and the team at Longwell Lawyers convinced

the initial bond with a new felony arrest.
All Charges Dropped
All Charges Dropped
Orange County - A father and son (not old enough to drive) were accused
of the father allowing his underage son to drive, resulting in a car crash.
The father was charged with the criminal charge of allowing an unlicensed
person to operate a motor vehicle, and the son was charged with two civil
infractions. Longwell Lawyers was able to get all of the charges dropped.
Forfeiture of $58,000
Orange County - Client was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for
a traffic infraction. The car was searched, and law enforcement found
a concealed firearm and a bag with $58,000 in cash. Law enforcement took
the money and the gun pursuant to an “investigation.” Longwell
Lawyers’ expert criminal trial attorney, Benjamin Jones, successfully
convinced the law enforcement agency’s attorneys that there was
nothing to legitimately investigate that could justify keeping the cash
in evidence and, even if there was, law enforcement had not followed the
proper procedures to keep the cash via civil forfeiture proceedings. Our
client received all his money back.
