Aggravated Battery on a Police Officer Dismissed in Hollywood

Outcome of Aggravated Battery Charge:

We got Jennifer’s aggravated battery on a police officer charge dismissed. Instead of Jennifer looking at a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison, Rossen Law Firm is working hard to finalize an expungement of her record.


Client Concerns in Aggravated Battery Case:

Jennifer has a PhD, and was scared that something like this would ruin her reputation and career. She was also worried about going to prison, especially when the entire situation could have been avoided with some thoughtful restraint from the police officers.

Facts of Aggravated Battery Charge:

Jennifer works extremely long hours in a medical research lab. Because of this, she needs to find unusual times to work out. Jennifer had recently moved into a new apartment complex in Hollywood. After getting home from work one night, she went to the apartment’s gym just before 1 a.m.


The security officer in the complex saw her, and told her that she couldn’t go to the gym because it was closed. Jennifer argued back, saying this is the same time that she always works out, and the gym is open. Jennifer swiped her key card, it unlocked the gym door and she went inside to work out, as usual.


Without her knowledge, the guard called the police to report her for trespassing.


The cops arrived on the scene and started knocking on the door, but Jennifer had her earbuds in. Since it was at 1 a.m. – dark outside, but lights on in the gym – Jennifer could only see a shadowy male figure outside the gym.  Jennifer tried to mouth that she could not hear the men, and was motioning and pointing to her earbuds. When Jennifer eventually realized that they were cops, she opened the door and went outside.


Jennifer explained the situation, saying she needed to work out and the gym was open. Overwhelmed by what was going on, and feeling intimidated by two male cops, she called her brother to come over and help.  Jennifer’s brother drove over and told her to get in the car and drive home, which she did in order to deescalate the situation.


As they backed up the car, one of the police officers grabbed her car door and was struck.   The police then followed Jennifer and arrested her for aggravated battery on a police officer.


Strategy in Aggravated Battery Case:

We got a call from Jennifer’s brother at 7 a.m. the next morning, and he hired Rossen Law Firm right away. We put them in touch with a bail bondsman, and made sure to go to the first appearance court with Jennifer’s brother. We negotiated a reasonable bond condition to get her out of jail as soon as we could. We began working on the case right away and subpoenaed videos from the apartment complex.


The police report was very poorly written, making it seem like Jennifer was dangerous and completely disregarded the police. The videos showed that it was difficult for Jennifer to see that the men were cops, and proved that she was pointing to her headphones. It also showed a woman, alone in the middle of the night; with dark, shadowy figures banging on the glass, which we were able to use as proof that Jennifer was scared during the entire situation.  Lastly, by showing the video to the prosecutor, we were able to prove the police officer created the problem by purposefully jumping into the way of the moving car door.

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.
