Nicole’s client’s wife called the police alleging he hit his 3 year old daughter and filed an order for protection against him. Nicole and her client prepared for the order for protection hearing and eventually got the order dismissed.
Her client also faced criminal charges for a Felony Malicious Punishment of a Child and Gross Misdemeanor Malicious Punishment of a Child, charges that potentially conflicted with the clients immigration status. Nicole considered all the facts and was able to negotiate a plea whereby her client pled guilty to disorderly conduct. This victory for Nicole’s client allowed him to keep his job and keep the serious felony off his permanent criminal record.
