Recently, one of our clients avoided jail time after his attorney successfully persuaded the court to dismiss the unlawful possession of a controlled substance charge against him. Attorney Matthew B. Wallin used his extensive knowledge of the applicable case law to convince the judge to dismiss the matter in the best interests of justice. If convicted, our client had faced up to 3 years in county jail, up to $10,000 in court fines, and a subsequent period of parole or probation.
“All of my clients suffer the humiliation of being accused of a crime,” explained Mr. Wallin. “I strongly believe in demanding respect from the criminal justice system that is prosecuting them.”
Our client sought Attorney Wallin’s representation after he was accused of possession of a controlled substance in violation of HS 1350(a). After discussing the matter with our client, Mr. Wallin committed himself to conducting the necessary legal research in order to achieve the best possible outcome for our client. After presenting favorable case law to the court, the judge decided to dismiss the charge in the best interests of justice.
Due to Mr. Wallin’s tremendous efforts, our client did not spend a single moment in jail, did not pay any fines, and was not subject to a period of probation or parole.
