South Florida Defense Attorneys Get Grand Theft Auto Charge Dropped in Davie, FL

Grand Theft Auto Case Dropped in Davie by South Florida Defense Attorneys


Outcome of Grand Theft Auto Case:

The Grand Theft Auto Defense Attorneys at Rossen Law Firm got the State Attorney to realize the problems with the case and drop the GTA charge, drop the felony conviction, and allow Jeff to resolve his case as a minor misdemeanor of trespass without a conviction. This allowed Jeff to seal this event off of his record and put all the drama behind him.

Client Concerns about Grand Theft Auto Charge:

Jeff bought this car through what he thought was a trusted source. Once the police showed up and arrested Jeff, he was worried he would be blamed for something he didn’t do. That being said, he cooperated with the police and voluntarily showed the detectives his phones, messages, and communications. Overall, Jeff did not want to be associated with the stolen car since he had no idea it was stolen in the first place.  Jeff had never been arrested before and was terrified at being branded a “criminal” and a “thief”.

Facts on Grand Theft Auto Case:

For our client, Jeff N., it took him years to build-up money to use as a deposit for a vehicle. Jeff’s friend set him up with a connection who was believed to be an automobile auctioneer/buyer. This buyer told Jeff to give him $5k as a deposit and then he would finance the remaining $15k for a lightly-used car. Jeff emptied his bank account, signed some papers, and that same day he got his first car. He was told that the registration and plates would be coming in the mail in a month or so.

In late 2017, Rob Lamdin’s University Dodge reported a car as missing/stolen from its lot. Further investigation revealed that the car was obtained through fraudulent means. The car was equipped with a GPS device and it was traced to Jeff’s place of employment in Davie, Florida.

Detectives barged into Jeff’s workplace and took him to the police department for questioning. Jeff was questioned by two detectives for more than 2 hours about how he came into possession of the vehicle. Jeff maintained his innocence through the entire interrogation. The detectives still arrested and charged Jeff with the Felony Charge of Grand Theft Auto. Jeff’s first car with returned to the dealership and Jeff was out the $5k he paid as a deposit, plus the payments he had been making.

Strategy of Attack on Grand Theft Auto Case:

The Rossen Law Firm fought for two whole years to prove Jeff’s innocence. Adam devised a plan to collect as much evidence as possible, and Manny took the deposition of 3 different detectives in the case. There was a glaring problem with the detectives’ investigation which will come as a shock to most. The lead detective’s report contained the following line: “Dealership provided me with an email showing surveillance of the male that conducted the fraudulent purchase transaction. The male that was observed completing the fraudulent transaction is not Jeff.” The detective did not collect/preserve that video because he said it added no value to the case.

Instead of going after the real perpetrator, the detective was more concerned with finding evidence that would prove Jeff was guilty of a felony. That person seen on video was never investigated, never arrested, and never charged with anything.

Manny wrote and filed a Motion to Dismiss the case against Jeff because his Constitutional Due Process Rights were violated by law enforcement’s failure to preserve key evidence in this case. The Motion to Dismiss was set for a hearing in September 2019.

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.
