Results From Recent Cases
Not Guilty: Filing False Tax Returns
The Scenario: Our client was tried and wrongfully convicted due to the testimony of a lying government witness. We fought to get him a new trial and succeeded when the federal District Court judge presiding over the case agreed with our view that the verdict was a “manifest injustice.” The government then appealed the judge’s decision granting a new trial to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. We defended our client in the appellate court and won there too.
The Results: Yet, despite our victories before the District Court and in the Second Circuit, the IRS kept going after our innocent client. Statistically, the IRS wins 99.75% of all cases they bring so they decided to try him again. We were there again to fight for him. After three weeks of trial, the jury deliberated less than 2 hours and cleared our client of all charges. Though statistically, we only had a .25% chance of winning, we prevailed and our client finally got the justice he deserved. A 6-year long ordeal for our client finally ended when a federal jury found him Not Guilty of All Charges.
Federal Cyber Crime
No Charges Brought
The Scenario: A 70 year old Indian-American scientist was fired after his company accused him of stealing trade secrets. The FBI Then executed a search warrant on his home. Once we got involved, we were able to get the government to drop the case and return all the items seized by the FBI.
The Results: After a year of fear and confusion, the government returned his passport just in time to travel to India and celebrate the birth of his first grandchild
