    A bar security staff member was attempting to detain a suspect involved in an alleged burglary and grand theft. Our client was accused of coming up from behind the security staff member and trying to choke him and pull him away. After we filed a Notice of Expiration of Speedy Trial and forced the case to trial, the State dropped the case.

    We were able to negotiate a custody agreement in our client’s divorce that allowed him to have primary custody over his child for one-half of the year without dragging the case out through months of litigation

    In a divorce matter, we represented the husband who shared two minor children with the other party, and they were married to each other for over 20 years. We successfully negotiated for our client to avoid paying permanent alimony and keep his pension.
