SUCCESSFUL CRIMINAL CASES WE’VE HANDLED IN SAN RAFAEL

Client:

Chris A


Location:

San Rafael


Charge:

Client had two strike priors for a case in Los Angeles. He had continued to abuse drugs and was given a “last chance” or he would face the maximum penalty (9 years in state prison). Chris violated probation by failing to report and testing positive. Both probation department and District Attorney demanded the full nine year sentence and the judge agreed. We set the matter over for a probation hearing.


Results:

After a lengthy hearing, the court agreed to allow client a chance at a residential facility.


Client:

Spencer R


Location:

San Rafael


Charge:

Domestic Violence


Results:

Mr. Moore was able to convince the District Attorney that despite a confession and injuries, the case should be dismissed given the victim’s past credibility issues.


Client:

Fahim K


Location:

San Rafael


Charge:

Charges possession of child pornography


Cases Details:

Client, an immigrant, was charged with possession of hundreds of images and video containing child pornography and was facing 9 years in state prison and deportation.

We retained a forensic expert and were able to show that the images could have been left added due to glitch in Bit Torrent-file sharing software and that this was corroborated by several on-line complaints by users.


Results:

immigration safe plea to misdemeanor. No sex offender registration.

Client Reviews for Summit Defense

by Katrina on Summit Defense
Location: Washington DC
Charge: Driving on suspended/probation violations

Rabin took my call at 8 am his time while he was driving to court (I called from across the country) and within hours he was in the court hearing and got my brother-in-law released from jail without bail! The case is just starting but already I know he’s in great hands. The fee quoted was completely reasonable and fair and the office was super about getting the paperwork done ASAP so Rabin could be there to represent my brother-in-law. The family thanks you!
