Convincing The Court System To Help A Troubled Teen
When troubled 14-year-old Tim was accused of serious criminal charges against a younger child, his family knew it was life-altering. They had recently adopted Tim, knowing his background of neglect and abuse. They were determined to stick by him, providing the support and unconditional caring he never knew from his natural parents.
They needed a lawyer who would tell a story about Tim’s struggles with his own abuse and how that led to the charges he now faced. He needed to be recognized by the court system not just as a perpetrator of crime, but as a young man damaged by circumstances beyond his control. He deserved a second chance in the justice system.
While the legal system found Tim committed the charges against him, and significant punishment was involved, the Court and the prosecutor acknowledged he deserved a second chance. The punishment for his actions was in a strong rehabilitative structure. Most of his sanctions were geared toward helping him overcome his own abuse and trauma. Tim would learn the social skills that would lead him away from future offending and toward being a healthy and productive member of society.
Tim underwent treatment and periods of confinement, but by 17, he was able to go home. He returned to high school, made friends, and graduated. He continued treatment and grew closer to his extended adoptive family. He recently began applying to colleges and hopes to achieve a lifetime goal that—at the age of 14—would have been unimaginable: Earn a college degree and the skills necessary to live a happy and successful adult life.

Preserving A Military Officer’s Reputation
Richard*, a high-ranking military officer with a security clearance, was charged with felony assault of his revengeful daughter, who he had caught in a compromising position with her boyfriend the night before.
With police demanding he turn himself in, a protective order against his daughter, and the threat of losing sole custody of his daughter, Richard had nowhere to turn. Worse yet, if any of those charges succeeded, Richard’s long and decorated career would be cut short, as would any financial security.
The police officers had accepted the daughter’s version of events without question. They were unconcerned with Richard’s description of the conflict. The felony charge he faced required he be held in jail without bond over the long holiday weekend. In that scenario, Richard’s command would have considered him AWOL.
Through creative and strategic lawyering, it was possible for the client to turned himself in to law enforcement early the next week, avoiding immediate negative consequences at work. Over the next six months, through negotiation and aggressive advocacy during hearings, the charges against Richard were dropped entirely. The protective order was dropped. After his daughter—through agreement of Richard and the courts–lived in a rural location with her aunt for some time, Richard was able to reestablish that relationship as well.
It was a terrifying experience for this career military officer. In the end, his career and his reputation were preserved, as was the life he had built for himself to this point.
