Facts

Our client had a judgment against him for a debt that he owed in the amount of $33,224.95 plus interest, and he received a notice of garnishment from his bank that his accounts and assets had been frozen. Our research revealed that he was never served with the lawsuit, and the process server who claims to have served him has since had her licensed revoked for giving false testimony that she had served other defendants.

Result

The judgment was set aside, the garnishment was lifted, and our client agreed to a confidential settlement.

Type

State Jail Felony

Facts

Client was driving on a rural highway when an officer activated his lights. Client kept driving for approximately 10 miles until she found a lighted area to pull over. The officer filed charges for evading detention with a vehicle. We convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the charges, because these days, it is not unreasonable for a woman to keep driving — even for 10 miles — until she finds a place she feels safe pulling over.

Result

Dismissed

Facts

Opposing party sought approximately $20,000 from client based on an allegation of fraud in connection with the sale of a home. The opposing party alleged that she had signed over the deed to her home to a third party in exchange for a promise made by a third party that he would sell the home and pay off the mortgage.
