On February 1, 2023, I began to represent a father and, subsequently a mother, whose son was fatally wounded by the police in the presence of the father. After shooting the son, an officer pointed a gun at the father and told him to get on the ground or he would shoot him too. Father and son were not committing a crime at the time of the shooting. Justice will prevail.
On July 20, 2022, I began to represent a mother whom wants to gain guardianship of her mentally challenged, young, adult child. Advocacy & Protection Services (APSI) has had guardianship of the child for five years. Everything in the record indicates, mother, an LPN, will act in the best interest of her child. To remove APSI as guardian, the law requires me to prove that APSI is not acting in the best interest of the child. The Supreme Court of the United States has repeatedly reaffirmed the existence of a constitutional right to the maintenance of a parent-child relationship. Kottmyer v. Maas,436 F.3d, 6th Cir. Ct. of App. 684 at 689 (2006.). Since my client and her child have a constitutional right to a parent-child relationship, the question should be why shouldn’t my client be guardian of her child? I am still fighting.
On September 21, 2020, I won a case in the Indiana Court of Appeals whereby the court granted my clients’ expungement.
On September 4, 2020, I received the opinions back on two cases from the Second District Court of Appeals. I really thought I had a chance of winning one on an ineffective assistance of counsel argument. The client plead guilty to aggravated burglary, but there was no evidence that he broke in the house per the police report which I provided to the court. In fact, my client said he had a key. The moral of the story is do not plead to something you are not guilty of. Ask your attorney what are the elements of the charge and what evidence the prosecutor has to support each element of the charge. This inquiry not only helps you, but also helps your attorney reevaluate your case.
