A manager for a major retail corporation was recently involved with a domestic violence offense. He was facing simple assault and harassment charges. If convicted, the man could be facing misdemeanor of the second degree for simple assault charge in additional to possible jail time. Although the police in Warminster Township had been dispatched on past incidences, formal charges had never been filed.

When the client contacted Bucks County law firm Fienmen Defense, Michael Fienman carefully reviewed the evidence of the case and discovered his client had been wrongfully accused. After successfully representing his client in the preliminary hearing, the case was dismissed due to lack of evidence by prosecution.

The following week, charges were refiled against the client. To further complicate the client’s situation, a petition was filed against the client so that the judge who dismissed the charges the first time would not have the jurisdiction to dismiss those charges again.

The client was concerned for his future but attorney Michael Fienman diligently fought on the man’s behalf. By handling the case outside the courtroom, Fienman worked out a deal with the prosecution which achieved a desirable outcome. A plea bargain was negotiated, which succeeded in dropping both simple assault and harassment charges against the client.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
