Two local attorneys, members of the National Association of Criminal Defense
Lawyers, said that they had never seen a similar case won in the 30 plus years
they had been practicing in the area. The client had everything stacked
against him: Muslim, affluent and Republican in blue-collar Democratic
town, and intensely negative press coverage that blanketed the jury pool.
Two things won this case: (1) a very aggressive
investigation plan; and (2) a very aggressive pre-trial motion plan. A
team of investigators collected everything they could find on the former
temporary employees who had made the accusations. In addition, the team
traveled across three states to locate a crucial friendly witness. Next,
the prosecution was hit hard with a series of pre-trial motions in which the
personal knowledge aspect of the alleged victims was put to intense
psychological scrutiny. Steps were also taken in the media to counteract
the intensely negative pre-trial coverage.
The prosecution realized its case had been devastated and
dropped all charges the day of the trial.
Federal prosecutors charged our client, an owner of a prominent
construction company, of conspiring to smuggle aliens into the U.S. from eastern
European countries. After thorough investigation, motion hearings, and
negotiations, the federal prosecutors agreed to settle the case for a fine and
probation. No jail time.
Lorandos & Associates’ client, a software consultant corporation, hired software
engineers from India, China, and other countries. One of the client’s
employees breached his employment agreement and defected to a rival software
corporation, taking trade secrets with him. Our attorneys, after a
thorough investigation, filed a detailed complaint. The errant employee
immediately settled to the satisfaction of our client.
client, an architect, faced serious liability as the result of a roof collapse
during one of his projects. After extensive discovery and motion hearings,
and well-researched briefs, the case evaluation panel awarded zero damages
against our client. The case was dropped.
lawsuit-happy patient decided that our client, a medical professional, had a
nice building that was ripe for the taking. She informed the local police
that the client was committing sexual acts during her medical visits. The
police and the state’s attorney general collaborated to send the woman back with
a hidden video camera to tape several visits. Next, the police and the attorney
general found two local "experts" in the same medical specialty to testify that
what the client had done was unethical, incompetent, and completely sexual in
orientation. At trial, the district attorney showed the video, got
testimony from the local "experts" and even got another patient to blurt out
during her testimony "He did sexual stuff to me too!" Again, our team used
the science and the published research in the scientific journals to
cross-examine the witnesses. The result: not guilty of all charges.
Our client found
himself involved in a RICO and Ponzi scheme nightmare, facing bankruptcy and
worse. Our aggressive research and representation in the suit and
depositions brought the opponents to their knees. The money that had been
lost by our client was more than repaid in the settlement won by our attorneys.
When a former beauty queen decided to divorce our client, she
conspired to have him charged with attempted homicide. She manipulated the
judge into violating our client's rights by having him illegally arrested and
charged. Our senior attorney sued the judge in federal court and got him
removed from the case. After an intense investigation of the facts and
negotiation with prosecutors, the case was settled - our client plead guilty to
shouting in public. Then we got him his house, his business, and his
kids. The former beauty queen was restricted to visits after she got
