Aggravated Assault with a Firearm Charges Dismissed in Hallandale Beach by South Florida Defense Attorneys

Aggravated Assault Charges Get Dismissed in Hallandale Beach by South Florida Defense Lawyers

Outcome of Aggravated Assault Case:

The prosecutors dropped the case before the judge even ruled on our motion to suppress. All of the charges against Gino were dismissed.

Client Concerns about Aggravated Assault Charge:

Gino was facing serious prison time if convicted.

Facts on Aggravated Assault Case:

Gino A. was trying to merge onto I-95, but another car would not let him in. That’s when Gino allegedly merged onto I-95, sped up until he was driving alongside this car, and fired two shots at the vehicle. The other driver thought he had thrown a rock at the car and kept driving. When he reached his place of work, the driver noticed there were two bullet holes in the side of the vehicle and called the police. The police ran the make and model of the car, which had a specialty plate, narrowed it down to a few suspects and arrested Gino. He then hired us to defend him.

Strategy of Attack on Aggravated Assault Case:

The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) did a terrible job on the investigation. There were several major problems: 1) They never did a photo lineup of the suspects; 2) They never tested the inside of Gino’s car for gunshot residue. Gunshot residue is very sticky, so we argued that because Gino had cloth seats and was accused of firing the gun out of the passenger side window, testing would have shown highly concentrated amounts of the substance in that area, but FHP never did the test; 3) FHP screwed up the search warrant. They had Gino’s apartment number wrong, but instead of getting a correct search warrant, they tied Gino up and threw him on the ground while they proceeded to search his apparent without permission. While the police claimed that Gino agreed to the search, we argued that he was acquiescing to authority, not consenting to the search.


While illegally inside his apartment, police didn’t find any guns that matched the bullet fragments in the case. However they did find the empty case of a 22 Caliber Mosquito that matched the bullets. The gun was not in the case and Gino said he had sold it a couple of years prior. We had a replica of the gun made to use at trial. In deposition the victim claimed he had not made eye contact with the shooter. He had only heard minor honking and kept driving. He heard two loud bangs, and then saw Gino with his hand being lowered. He did not see a firearm in his hand. But the replica showed it would have been impossible not to see a gun of that size in his hand. We then filed a motion to suppress all of the evidence found through this illegal search.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
