Despite overwhelming evidence implicating their client, the attorneys from Freedman & Freedman were successful in negotiating with the state prosecutor a complete dismissal of the charge against their client and only a nominal restitution to the alleged victim in the case. This was a major success for the client who was able to avoid thousands of dollars in monetary fines and imprisonment.
