Possession of Cannabis as a Kid Turns into Full Pardon by the Governor of Florida

Childhood Possession of Marijuana Charge Turns into Full Pardon by Florida Governor

Outcome of Possession of Marijuana Case:

Not even halfway through the 10 minutes Jeremy was given with the Florida Clemency Board, the Governor, and the other three Cabinet members granted his pardon unanimously on the spot. Strangers even came up to Jeremy and Attorney Adam Rossen after the hearing to congratulate him and wish him good luck with his future career in law enforcement.

Client Concerns about Possession of Marijuana Charge:

There is a committee that recommends whether people should be pardoned or not before the actual event, and they told the Cabinet that Jeremy was only partially approved. This scared Jeremy because it made it seem like he already did not have a chance at the hearing. Jeremy was also nervous after watching all of the other cases get denied on the spot.

Facts on Possession of Marijuana Case:

In 2003, Jeremy N. was hanging out with his friends of the time, who were bad influences on Jeremy’s character. The police showed up to their hang out and found an ounce of weed in his car, arresting Jeremy and charging him with possession of cannabis. When Jeremy realized what his life had come to, he quickly turned himself around and worked hard to make things right. He graduated college with an Associates and Bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida and decided to travel to Israel for Birthright, a free trip for young, Jewish adults to experience their culture and faith firsthand. Jeremy fell so deeply in love with Israel that he applied to become a legal citizen, allowing him to move there in 2010. While in Israel, Jeremy joined the Israeli army, starting his military career as a Combat Soldier and eventually working his way up to Sergeant in 2013. That same year Jeremy found out that his father and grandfather were sick, so he decided to move back to America to take care of them. While here Jeremy wanted to become a police officer as he had done in Israel, but being a convicted felon took away Jeremy’s right to own a firearm. After being referred to us by his father and brother, Jeremy hired us to work on getting him a pardon.


Strategy of Attack on Possession of Marijuana Case:

While living in Colorado, Jeremy founded a company called Battle Patches, which worked to design patches for military clothing, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to helping veterans. Jeremy also used his time to volunteer at the local Humane Society and for the local Veterans Disaster Response Team. We used this to help write a speech for the hearing, as this showed Jeremy’s caring and compassionate spirit. Six years later, we finally received a hearing date from the Florida Clemency Board, headed by Governor Ron DeSantis. Jeremy and I spent countless hours working on his speech, making sure that it was convincing enough for his pardon to be granted. When we got to the hearing, we waited for four hours before Jeremy was even heard. In that time we watched people be denied of their pardons on the spot, with no explanation from the governor. When it was finally our turn to speak, I wanted to act as the conductor, just introducing Jeremy and letting him tell his story to the Cabinet, as we only had 10 minutes to plead our case. I also had his friend fly in from Colorado to give her testimony about how Jeremy was able to turn his life around.

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.
