Pro Bono Client Obtains Dismissal in Criminal Matter

Paul, Weiss and Brooklyn Defender Services obtained the dismissal of robbery charges against our client in New York state court. Paul, Weiss and a photogrammetry expert developed a report showing that an individual identified as our client in surveillance footage of the crime was actually several inches taller than our client. This evidence, along with cellular phone records, led Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thomson to dismiss the charges against our client outright. The district attorney commended the defense for its diligent investigation, which ensured a just resolution, and the presiding judge extended congratulations as well. 

The Paul, Weiss team included litigation partner Andrew Ehrlich and associate Anders Pauley.
