Felony evading and DWI Case, Pre-Trial Diversion
RESULTS: Client Receives Pre-trial Diversions in Felony Evading Case and DWI

In a recent challenging case, our law firm championed the rights of a foreign exchange student on the brink of deportation due to what started as a minor traffic misjudgment.

The student, unfamiliar with American road etiquette, inadvertently delayed pulling over for the authorities, resulting in charges of evading arrest, a serious third-degree felony, coupled with allegations of driving while intoxicated. Client came to Mr. Blizzard worried that he would be deported due to these severe charges.

Our innovative and strategic approach to legal defense shone brightly throughout this complex situation. Understanding that cultural misunderstandings can exacerbate legal troubles, we employed a unique combination of legal knowledge and cultural empathy to craft a robust defense strategy. Our team meticulously dissected the incident, revealing key nuances that led to a comprehensive representation of the student’s case.

We focused on informative dialogue, emphasizing the student’s limited understanding of local laws and his otherwise impeccable conduct while in the country. Our efforts underscored the profound impact that thoughtful, inventive legal representation can have in cases where cultural nuances play a significant role.

Mr. Blizzard was able to work with the prosecutor’s office and obtain pre-trial diversion for both the DWI and the Evading Arrest felony for him. This meant the client would complete a period of 1 year of secret probation with the prosecutor’s office, and then he would be eligible for an immediate expunction after completion of the pre-trial diversion, removing the arrest and all records of the case from Client’s criminal history.

This allowed Client to continue to stay in the United States without facing deportation or denial of a visa or residency in the United States.

At our law firm, we go beyond traditional defense tactics – we dedicate ourselves to discovering new angles, presenting innovative solutions, and advocating vigorously and thoughtfully for every client. Our commitment to leveraging strategic thinking in tackling unique legal predicaments was instrumental in the successful navigation of this complex case.
