Michael Goldstein obtained a dismissal of all charges against his client at the time of trial. In this case, the alleged victim claimed she was attacked by our client in his home. A witness, who was a friend of the victim, was also present and took video of the alleged assault. After a thorough investigation by our investigator, Michael convinced the City Attorney that the video was manipulated and that the victim had lodged prior allegations against other men, including, an ex-boyfriend who we located and interviewed. Michael also suggested that the victim was simply using the federal violence against women action (VAWA) to obtain her citizenship which often permits victims of domestic violence to remain in the United States as a result of such violence. The victim had previously worked for an immigration law office.
