Because Chau N. hired Rossen Law Firm right away, we were able to get his domestic violence and battery charges dismissed. Now, Chau can continue his life with no mugshot, charges, or arrest on his record.
Chau was trying to protect himself, and did not intentionally mean to hurt his wife. He was scared that this would affect his divorce.
Chau and his wife were separated for two years but were still living together in separate bedrooms. Chau’s wife had a new boyfriend, and wanted to marry him in order to solve her immigration issues. One day, when Chau came home from work, his wife thrust divorce papers in his face and pressured him to sign them immediately. Chau didn’t have an issue with getting divorced, but he wanted to hire a lawyer first to look over the paperwork before he signed anything. His wife started screaming at him, so he then raised his hand to strike her in self-defense – not cognizant that his car keys were still in his hand. Chau left his house in order to escape the drama, and his wife called the police.
Chau hired us immediately, and we made sure he never spoke to the police. We convinced the police not to arrest Chau and instead asked the officers to send the case to the State for a not-in-custody filing determination. We interviewed Chau’s wife, who admitted to us that she hit him first. When the police started questioning her, however, she changed her story. We obtained body camera footage of the questioning, and then proved that she was lying to the police. We negotiated with the prosecutors to get the charges dismissed since Chau was telling the truth.
