RESULTS: Abuse Case Dismissed
Sometimes the police do NOT get the whole story.
We know, We know: that just cannot be true.
BUT, we’re all human beings, and often times family situations are chaotic—not just for the family, but for our first responders as well.
Here, our female client came to us with allegations of abuse against her significant other when in fact, the situation was really the opposite.
Our client was assaulted but she was arrested because “someone had to go to jail,” and she didn’t live at the residence.
Oftentimes, law enforcement decisions are made on “policy,” like, “policy requires us to take someone to jail.”
Policy is good, BUT so is thorough and objective investigation.
Sometimes in the field the officer’s need to “put out the fire” and move to the next call outweighs the need for a detailed investigation.
The case then moves to a detective and many times—but NOT all—the detective upholds the responding officer’s decision.
At Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys we believe in a fair shake & objective investigations.
Many times we find witnesses the police didn’t speak to with just a couple of phone calls.
Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys work tirelessly to achieve the greatest possible results for each of our clients and their families. This is one of our successful results, settlements, and verdicts. Every case and client is unique and depends upon the individual facts and circumstances of each case. Clients may or may not obtain the same or similar results in each case.
