NOT GUITLY- Jury verdict- Baltimore City- Second Degree assault

Midday Tuesday, August 11, 2015 a Baltimore City jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY for our client in a trial handled by our associate attorney Elisabeth Hellwig. This isn’t one of those cases that will be found in any newspaper article, or even any online blogs, but it’s a great victory and justice for a client of ours who we believe was facing charges of assault in the second degree that were fabricated to further a custody dispute over a child that the alleged victim and our client have together.

These are often difficult cases to handle, as are many cases that we handle when we feel that the complaining party is attempting to further some other interest, in this case a custody/visitation dispute, through the Maryland Criminal Court system. We’re happy for our client, Attorney Hellwig, and the system as a whole, allowing for proper justice to be done.
