Our client was charged with 7 Felony Counts of ID Theft, Com­mer­cial Bur­glary and Petty Theft with pos­si­ble penal­ties to include a lengthy state prison sen­tence.  After nego­ti­at­ing with the Dis­trict Attorney’s Office, we were able to resolve the mat­ter with one felony for each count charged.  The client was to serve 120 days county jail time and was eli­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate in the county work program.

Marin County Supe­rior Court

Case Set­tled May 2012 – Prior to hir­ing our law firm, a $2.4 Mil­lion Judg­ment was entered against our client. The Plain­tiff was in the process of exe­cut­ing on the judg­ment.  After hir­ing our law firm, the par­ties involved agreed to medi­ate the case.  At the medi­a­tion, we reached an agree­ment where our client was not required to make any pay­ment on the judg­ment and the Plain­tiff agreed not to exe­cute on the judgments.

Santa Clara County

Our client owns a small busi­ness and holds a con­tract with a large national retail store requir­ing the retailer to make monthly pay­ments to our client.  The large national retail store was delin­quent in pay­ments along with con­sis­tently pay­ing late.  After hir­ing our law firm, we devel­oped an aggres­sive strat­egy to secure all out­stand­ing money for our client and ensure that all pay­ments would be received in a timely man­ner.  In less than two months, our client received over $60,000 in out­stand­ing monies.  Addi­tion­ally, dur­ing the remain­der of the con­tract period all pay­ments were made punctually.
