  • Assault with Great Bodily Injury

    Assault & Battery

    Client was facing over 20 years in prison for assault causing great bodily injury. Essentially this was a bar fight in Oakley CA with nearly a dozen people involved. Our client got involved to defend his girlfriend who was involved in the fight. He was charged with assaulting 2 people; the main one suffered a broken nose, broken orbital socket, and gash to the forehead which required stitches.

    We went to preliminary hearing on this case. As a result of the work we put in at prelim and the amazing investigation done by our private investigator we were able to sit down with the DA and work out a deal for one year which gets our client out in January 2019. Had he opted not to take that deal he was facing decades in prison instead of months.

  • Resisting Arrest

    Domestic Violence

    Client was placed in a holding cell (after being arrested for the domestic violence) in the Concord Police Station and the police were trying to remove his handcuffs. They didn't like him at all and when he started to lower his first hand after it was uncuffed and stand up they forced him into the corner of the cell and pinned him into a wall. There were one or two officers pushing him into the wall of the cell. The cell he was in was very small - probably 3 feet by 3 feet. There was somewhat of a struggle going on. A third officer got involved, entered the small cell and punched my client square in the face four times as hard as he could. Then the officer jumped up on top of the small bench in the cell and elbowed my client on the top of the head as hard as he could. This caused my client to fall to the ground. They dragged him out of his cell and then grabbed him by his hair (he had long hair) to drag him to the ground. He was bleeding profusely from this conduct. He was eventually taken to the hospital. He suffered many injuries as a result including a broken orbital socket. He had many different hospital visits and is still undergoing additional treatment.


    At trial we argued that the police officer's conduct was abhorrent and was a completely inappropriate and excessive use of force. The jury apparently agreed with me because they delivered a Not Guilty verdict on this charge (Penal Code Section 148(a)(1)).
