RB Law Saves the Day Again

Our client was charged with assaulting her neighbor, which she claims was a complete fabrication. As a Mexican-American, she faced deportation. The prosecutor was steadfast on pushing our client to plead guilty to a violation, which requires up to 15 days in jail and anger management classes. We prepared to go to trial on short notice, since she had originally hired another well-respected Staten Island lawyer. 

Eventually, the District Attorney agreed to an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, also known as an ACD, which normally requires a 6 month period of no trouble before the case is dismissed and sealed. Fortunately we convinced both the judge and prosecutor to approve of on an ACD with immediate sealing, and our client was able to return back to her normal life.
