Chad West, PLLC Celebrates 5th Anniversary
As my law firm celebrates its fifth birthday, I would like to extend a big thank you all of our colleagues, clients, friends, and family! For the past five years, we have worked diligently to earn our clients the justice they deserve in both personal injury and criminal defense matters. When a client retains the services of Chad West, PLLC, he or she gets the highest level of legal attention they can find. Our strong team, far-reaching relationships, and expertise give each client the benefit of achieving the best results possible. In the past year, our criminal defense clients have received excellent outcomes in their cases. Our own Jonathan Michell is a former prosecutor who focuses solely on criminal defense cases and spends every day in the courtroom getting clients the justice they deserve. A recent client praised Jonathan’s work ethic and expertise: “The total experience started great with Jonathan returning my call, listening carefully, and acknowledging concerns. He addressed the serious nature of the consequences and to not take them lightly. We never felt like the case was being ignored or treated lightly in any fashion. Solid work and results.” To further illustrate the good results we have achieved for clients, here are a few recent victories:
Client with prior murder conviction charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Prosecutor’s original offer was 20 years prison. Jonathan got the charges dropped to misdemeanor assault, no fine, no conviction, and no jail time.
Client arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance (hashish oil) in DFW International Airport on his way back to California. Jonathan convinced a grand jury to return a “No Bill” in the clients favor, resulting in no criminal charges being filed.
Client charged with Driving While Intoxicated. Client was arrested after driving his truck off an embankment and over a gas pipe and had an alleged blood alcohol concentration of .25 (more than three times the legal limit. Client faced possible deportation if convicted. Jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty in 23 minutes.
Client on felony probation for Driving While Intoxicated in Collin County. Client picked up four new felony drug offenses in Dallas County. Collin County filed a motion to revoke client’s probation and sentence her to 10 years prison. Jonathan convinced the DA’s office to withdraw their motion to revoke and continue the client on probation.
We would not be able to help these individuals without the support from the community and friends of the firm sending us referrals.
