Grand Theft Auto Charge in Deerfield Beach Gets Dismissed the Day Before Trial by South Florida Defense Attorneys

South Florida Grand Theft Auto Defense Attorneys Get Case Dropped in Deerfield Beach

Outcome of Florida Grand Theft Auto Case:


The prosecution dropped the case right before trial.

Client Concerns about Florida Grand Theft Auto Charge:

Christina had moved to New Hampshire and started a life there. Now she was facing prison time in Florida if convicted.  She had never been arrested before and always lived a law abiding life.  She felt victimized by this Toyota dealership and wanted to prove her innocence.

Facts on Florida Grand Theft Auto Case:

Christina B. was an elderly paralegal who got a solicitation in the mail offering zero percent down and a good interest rate at Toyota of Deerfield Beach. She was in need of a new car and decided to take advantage of the deal they were offering. She went to Toyota on a Saturday and was there all day negotiating with them. They used a lot of bait and switch techniques. Finally, they reached a deal. Then the paperwork began. Toyota closed at 9pm, but the dealer didn’t come back with financing approval for her until 9:15pm. At that point they made her sign twenty pages of forms. Christina had been there all day and wanted to get out of there, so they pressured her into signing. Toyota then let her take the car home.


The next day Christina was bombarded with calls by Deerfield Toyota saying that she signed a conditional sales contract, and that she needed to come back to sign additional paperwork, and bring proof of work, along with some other documentation. As a paralegal Christina thought it odd. She decided to Google what was going on and discovered it was a yoyo scam. The paperwork said she had to come back, but no one at the dealership even mentioned that to her, let alone explained it in any way. Christina fought back and even consulted a civil attorney. Toyota called the police saying that she stole the car. The first cop they spoke with told them it was a civil matter, not criminal. Relentless, Toyota then called in a favor and got a detective assigned to the case. The detective did a terrible investigation, never even reaching out to Christina, the person accused of the crime! Instead, he just sent the case on to the state attorney to file charges against Christina.


Meanwhile, Christina tried sending in the first two payments on the car, but the bank wouldn’t accept either of them because Toyota hadn’t finalized the loan. So then Christina tried sending the checks directly to Toyota, but they wouldn’t take them either. A few months later Christina moves to New Hampshire.


One and a half years later, Christina is pulled over for speeding in New Hampshire and ends up getting arrested. The cops also take her car. There was a warrant out for her arrest in Florida. Christina spends 30 days in a New Hampshire jail awaiting extradition to Florida. She spends Christmas 2017 shackled in a gray van being driven from New Hampshire to Florida. Upon her arrival here, Christina found our firm online and hired us to represent her.

Strategy of Attack on Florida Grand Theft Auto Case:

The first thing we did was bond her out of jail so she could go back to New Hampshire while we fought the case here. This was a civil matter that got way out of hand. We decided to go after Toyota. We took depositions of employees, and the detective who had “investigated” the case. We also showed copies of the unaccepted car payments Christina tried to make to the prosecutor. With a strong case, we decided to push aggressively towards trial.

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.
