Another Satisfied Client…Why? We will do whatever needs to be done to win! Winning Criminal Defense Attorney

Being a “winning criminal defense attorney“, does not always mean winning at trial, keeping a client out of jail, or preventing them from losing their job or children. Whatever “winning” is changes with each client and what is important in that person’s life. For a recent client, she was in poor health and had been told by a judge that she was going to do the maximum amount of jail time possible. The client hired another lawyer who, despite months of trying, was unable to convince the judge to reduce the client’s pending jail sentence by a single day. This is where LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. stepped in. When the client released the former lawyer and hired us, we developed a new strategy and went about doing everything possible to keep this client out of jail altogether. The client had serious medical needs and medical care in the jail is awful (at best).

In the end, we were successful and the client got straight probation with NO JAIL. The judge even said, “Even I cannot believe I am not giving you jail time. Rarely, if ever, have I seen a lawyer work so hard to keep a client out of jail.” Needless to say, the client was very happy. Here is the email she sent after getting home from court:

How many golf clubs does a professional golfer carry in his or her bag? Not just one right?

Note: The client’s name and identifying information has been removed from the email to protect the client’s identity.  The judge assigned to the case was the Hon. Kimberly Small in the 48th Judicial District Court in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.  Judge Small is an incredibly tough judge that many lawyers avoid at all costs.  In our experience, although she is tough, she is thoughtful and reasonable and if given truthful, credible reasons for her to deviate from a jail sentence or an extensive jail sentence, she can be persuaded to be merciful.
