Assault in the Third Degree, as a Hate Crime, a class E felony

Full acquittal on all charges after bench trial -

Case: People of the State of New York v. A. R.

Judge: Supreme Court of New York Honorable Judge D. Lewis

County: Queens

Details: Client and his cousin were charged with felony assault against the three gay complainants, causing serous injuries. With the assistance of a video expert our law firm was able to prepare the defense by going frame-by-frame on a 90 minute long video of the incident. After a lengthy two week long trial it was established, through the playing of the 90 minute video frame by frame, that our client did not initiate the brawl, did not use disproportionate force and finally tried to disengage while being pursued by the complainants. I successfully cross- examined the main complainant witness and destroyed her credibility. The judge acquitted our client of all charges

Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree, a class C felony

Case dismissed -

Date: June, 2011

Case: People of the State of New York v. J. P.

County: Kings

Details: Client arrested and charged with a very serious gun felony, with five years mandatory sentence. A handgun and a large quantity of marijuana was recovered near our client. After many lengthy visits to the crime scene our law firm was able to conclusively establish a "at the wrong place at the wrong time" defense. After several lengthy discussions with the Assistant District Attorney, including a review of the crime scene photographs it was agreed to adjourn the case in contemplation of dismissal. Case has been dismissed.

Immigration case: I-601 waiver

Waiver granted -

Details: Our client took voluntary departure to Pakistan with the advice of his previous attorney in 2005. Client's ailing United States citizen mother had to move with him to Pakistan. Our law firm strategically waited to avoid consular processing in Pakistan and filed the I-601 waiver with USCIS in the United States, when it became available in June, 2012. We succeeded in this case in spite of the fact that the ailing mother had two United States citizen children living in America.

The I-601 waiver was granted and the client is preparing to travel to the United States, accompanied by his ailing mother.
