  • State v. M.K.: Our client was accused of running his girlfriend's car off the road, smashing out her window, and taking property from her car. After pointing out serious flaws in the State's case, the prosecution decided to dismiss the felony common law robbery and communicating threats charges, and we proceeded to trial on the only remaining charge - Assault on a Female. At trial, our client was found not guilty after we successfully argued that his actions did not meet the legal definition of Assault.
