Our client, a successful music producer, was charged in a 9 count misdemeanor complaint with a variety of violent offenses. After receiving a letter advising him of the charges and arrest warrant, the client retained Michael who avoided an embarrassing arrest by surrendering the client in court. The client remained free without the need to post bail. The City Attorney produced 911 calls from two different incidents as body worn video generated during interviews of the alleged victim at the time officers arrived. A plea of not guilty was entered and Michael immediately set the case for trial refusing to entertain any plea offers given the reputational harm that would result from any conviction. Discussions with the City Attorney and witnesses led to the dismissal of all charges on the day of trial.
