Our client was charged with malicious wounding after her estranged husband falsely reported that she attacked him. We took the case to trial, showing that he had initiated an argument and then claimed that she was the aggressor, as well as exaggerating injuries in his police report. The judge reduced the felony charge to a misdemeanor, and our client avoided a felony conviction and significant prison sentence.

Our client was falsely accused of fraud after a bad breakup. He hired us after having been convicted of felony fraud.

We immediately filed to expunge his record of the false charges.
We represented a school employee falsely accused of abuse of a student. After losing her job and livelihood, she hired us to appeal the case.

On the second appeal, the finding was reversed and the complaint dismissed and our client was able to clear her name.
We represented a client wrongfully charged in a string of home burglaries. In fact, another person had committed the crime and police mistakenly thought our client was involved because he had socialized with that person in the past. Facing years in prison, he maintained his innocence. We took the cases to trial and successfully presented alibi evidence that our client had been in the hospital with his wife and newborn child during the time the burglaries were committed. The judge dismissed all charges against our client.
We successfully appealed the conviction of a client who was convicted of a gun charge after the car he was driving was illegally searched during a traffic stop.

Our client’s conviction was reversed and dismissed.

He was released and the charge dismissed, and his record expunged.
Our client was falsely accused of stalking and assault by someone he met on a dating website. He was arrested and held without bond.

We represented a young mother of two small children who was charged with malicious wounding after defending herself against her abusive partner. After years of physical abuse, one day she stood up for herself and fought back, injuring him. The police charged her with malicious wounding, a serious felony that carries up to 20 years in prison. We took the case to trial and she was found not guilty.
We represented a mother sued in federal court under the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction. Our client had fled an abusive relationship with her small child, and the father was trying to force their return. We took the case to trial and proved that he was abusive and therefore she was justified in leaving with the child. The federal judge dismissed the suit against her, and our client was able to start a new life here with her daughter.

“Miriam, thank you again for all of your hard patience, diligence, and hard work on these matters. I really can’t thank you enough for giving me my life back. I can’t even put it into words. I also want to thank you for one important aspect – treating me like a person. You saw me as an individual. That means everything, and I thank you for it.”
“Eleven years ago, Miriam represented me when I almost lost my child when she was only 5 years old. My daughter went to visit her grandparents in my home country. My daughter’s father and I were already divorced. When he found out that my daughter was in my home country, he called me threatening me to kidnap her and told me that I was never going to see her again. I consulted with Miriam. She very kindly and calmly told me not to worry that she was going to do her best to prevent that from happening. Miriam immediately began the request for an emergency hearing with the judge, which was granted. She not only won my case with the judge granting me “sole custody”, but made the case so strong that the judge was even willing to send an immediate order to the US Embassy in my country, to retrieve my daughter and bring her back to me, in the US.”
