SUCCESSFUL EXAMPLES OF MOTIONS FOR A NEW TRIAL

Felony Assault of a Police Officer:
A protestor retained me after being convicted of throwing an object at a demonstration, injuring a police officer's eye. We filed a Motion for New Trial based on video footage combined with a police officer's report showing another person committed the crime. The court vacated the jury's verdict and granted a new trial.

Felony Assault Domestic Violence:
The client retained me after he was convicted. His trial lawyer had misplaced his file before trial and lost crucial evidence he wanted to present at trial. We located the investigator, obtained the evidence again, and persuaded the court to vacate the jury's verdict and grant a new trial based on ineffective assistance of counsel.

Juvenile Felony Assault:
A family retained me after their son was convicted of felony assault at trial in juvenile court. We presented a sworn statement from the witness that defense counsel failed to call to testify, who would have supported the client's claim of self-defense. The court granted a new trial based on ineffective assistance of counsel.

Insurance Fraud:
A client retained me after he was convicted in Pierce County. His lawyer failed to appear repeatedly for hearings. He fell asleep in the hallway during trial recesses. I investigated and discovered the lawyer was then in in-patient drug treatment. He had been suspended from practice while he was representing my client, and had been defending himself against a drug charge in King County. Our motion for new trial based on ineffective assistance of counsel was granted.
