Domestic Violence Reduced to Misdemeanor

Domestic violence cases are typically pursued aggressively by Oakland prosecutors. This makes it essential to protect your record and secure a result that does not unfairly punish you. For example, attorney Elliot Silver represented a man who was accused of holding his wife over a 15th story balcony. This was a serious and potentially devastating situation, but attorney Silver saw the situation for what it was and expedited the case to a manageable conclusion. By negotiating with the prosecution, his client agreed to participate in 52 weeks of domestic violence classes, time served, and plead to a misdemeanor.

Strike Offense Removed and New Drug Charges Dismissed

When his client was recently charged with possession of heroin, attorney Silver knew the outlook was bleak since this offense was being considered a felony because of a prior strike. With a maximum of eight years in prison hanging over his client’s head, attorney Silver filed a Romero motion to have his previous strike offense removed. This proved successful. Attorney Silver went above and beyond to obtain a dismissal for his client’s recent drug charge based on completing an outpatient treatment program. In the end, a serious blemish was removed and no new charges would be added.
