Client was charged with shoplifting at Safeway. A vigorous defense revealed that client simply made a mistake. Initial offer before getting involved was: 60 days in county jail, 3 court probation, theft terms, and so on. After I got involved in the case client received an infraction (essentially a ticket), no jail time, no court probation, and did not have to pay the fine either! Very happy client! This was accomplished by investigating the case and showing facts that the police failed to write in their police report and conveniently overlooked in the case. The weakness in the case was exposed to the District Attorney. Client also had mitigating factors which always help in negotiating betters offers.
