Case Studies

Federal Internet and Identity Fraud Crimes Reduced

Federal charges are extremely serious, and often mandate long prison sentences if convicted. But the complexities of the case and the charges did not deter the D’Emilia Law team. Case negotiations lasted for more than a year. Each of the defendants faced multiple years in prison.

Attempted Murder Charges Drastically Reduced, No Deportation

D’Emilia Law certainly overcame the odds, and was able to successfully reduce the most serious charge – attempted murder. Many other charges were reduced as well.

Federal Felony Drug Possession Charges Dismissed

After months of legal proceedings and negotiations, federal prosecutors dismissed all charges against the client, whose reputation and business remained untainted thanks to the defense prowess of D’Emilia Law.

DWI Charges Reduced to Misdemeanor

Though it was a lengthy process and required substantial communication between our firm, the client and the prosecutor, we were able to convince the Westchester DA to dismiss our client’s felony charge and take jail time off the table.
