The Davidoff Law Firm represented Mr. Yee against the State of Florida. Mr. Yee was charged with attempted murder and armed kidnapping, both felonies punishable by life sentences in prison, and was held no bond on these two non-bondable offenses. If convicted of the initial charges, Mr. Yee faced the likely possibility that he would have received the maximum possible sentence of life in prison. The initial plea offer was fifteen years in state prison.
Mr. Davidoff was able to secure a reasonable bond for Mr. Yee after successfully arguing his motion for a bond and the Court conducted an Arthur Hearing (bond hearing). Based on Mr. Davidoff’s cross examination of the State of Florida’s witnesses and making arguments to the Court, the Judge determined that the evidence in the case was insufficient and issued a ruling that there was “proof not evident and presumption not great”. Thus, Mr. Yee was released on a bond.
After conducting a thorough investigation, with the assistance of private investigators instructed by Mr. Davidoff, and taking the depositions of all the witnesses, Mr. Davidoff was successful in obtaining a non-jail plea offer for Mr. Yee and having the State of Florida reduce the charges to which the plea agreement was based upon. Subsequent to the plea offer, Mr. Davidoff was able to further reduce the types of probation that Mr. Yee was being supervised on.
The Davidoff Law Firm represented Mr. Fernandez against the State of New York. Mr. Fernandez was charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree (Class B Felony) and he was classified as a Predicate Felon. Mr. Fernandez was facing a prison sentence of at least nine years and a maximum of twenty-five years plus lifetime probation if convicted of the initial charges brought against him.
After evaluating the case and investigating the allegations charged against Mr. Fernandez, Mr. Davidoff was successful in convincing the Assistant District Attorney that there was a compelling motion to suppress, which if the Court ruled in Mr. Fernandez’s favor on this motion all of the evidence in the case would have been excluded and the charges against Mr. Fernandez would have been dismissed. Mr. Fernandez received a non-jail plea deal in which if he was successful the plea would be vacated and the charges against him would have been dismissed.
During the course of the probationary period, it was alleged that Mr. Fernandez violated the terms of his plea agreement. If the Court determined that Mr. Fernandez violated the terms of the plea agreement, Mr. Fernandez faced up to eight years in state prison. Mr. Davidoff was again retained by Mr. Fernandez to represent him for purposes of the violation. Mr. Davidoff was successful in investigating the violation, obtaining the evidence that disproved the allegations in the violation, and convinced the Court and the Assistant District Attorney to dismiss the violation and restore Mr. Fernandez to the original probation agreement. Earlier than Mr. Fernandez expected, the Court vacated the plea agreement and dismissed all the pending charges against Mr. Fernandez. Mr. Fernandez does not have a record of a conviction in this matter and he did not receive any jail or prison time for his involvement in this action. The Davidoff Law Firm has represented Mr. Fernandez in several other matters after the conclusion of this matter.
