Kia Law Firm is pleased to announce another victory against the government in the prosecution of drunk driving offenses. In this case, our client “Frank” was involved in an accident and his blood test revealed a blood alcohol concentration of .20.

Through our legal maneuvering and trial strategy, we were able to convince the prosecution to dismiss both DUI charges (CVC 23152(a) + CVC 23152(b)) in exchange for a plea to reckless driving (commonly referred to as a “dry reckless”. The benefit of a dry reckless is that it is not a DUI and does not count as a prior DUI. This is better than a wet reckless which is a DUI.

NOT GUILTY VERDICT AT DUI TRIAL ON SEPTEMBER 9, 2016

Kia Law Firm is pleased to report another victory. On September 8, 2016, Kia Feyzjou announced ready for trial on a DUI matter in Riverside, California. Jurors were empaneled on that day and on September 9, 2016, Mr. Feyzjou cross-examined the prosecution witnesses, including the Investigating Officer from the California Highway Patrol, as well as the Criminalist Philip Nhan. After effective cross-examination, including playing portions of the Mobile Video Audio Recording System aka the audio video from the officer’s vehicle, the case was submitted to the jury following closing arguments.

Mr. Feyzjou was able to persuade the Court to dismiss California Vehicle Code 23152(b) which alleged that the client was driving over .08 at the time of the offense. That motion raised by Mr. Feyzjou was granted. Therefore, the only remaining charge before the jury was the charge that the client was driving impaired. Within 45 minutes of deliberations, the jury returned with a not guilty verdict as to Count 1 (driving while impaired).

This is just another example of effective lawyering from Kia Feyzjou, Board Certified Criminalist Law Specialist. As you will note, each one of the victories that Mr. Feyzjou has obtained has documentation to back it up. Many attorneys claim that they get charges dismissed, but without proof, there is nothing to trust.

PROSECUTOR DISMISSES ALL FELONY CHARGES DURING TRIAL ON JULY 18, 2016

On July 11, 2016, we started trial on several serious felony charges including 1st Degree Residential Burglary, Criminal Threats, Stalking, Felony Domestic Violence and Violation of a Court Order. Our lead attorney, Mr. Feyzjou, spent days preparing for trial. He appeared and he picked a jury. About 15 minutes before attorney Kia Feyzjou of Kia Law Firm was scheduled to present the opening statements in the case, the prosecutor dismissed all charges against the client and the client was released from jail the same day. 

In this particular case, the prosecution case was weak. However, the refused to dismiss the case. They initially offered the client state prison. That offer was rejected. The day before trial, they offered the client the opportunity to plead guilty to a felony strike. We rejected the offer. Before the jury was impaneled, the prosecutor agreed to allow the Defendant to plead guilty to a non-strike felony. We rejected the offer. From the very beginning, we believed in the client’s innocence. Finally, on July 18, 2016, the prosecutor came to their senses and dismissed the entire case and the Defendant was able to go home and return to his family. 

Moral of the story: Never give up if you are innocent.

On October 25, 2015, our client was arrested for a DUI.

At the Trial Readiness Conference on July 1, 2016, we persuaded the prosecutor to dismiss the criminal case against our client, Alexander.

FELONY CHARGES DISMISSED IN MARCH 2016. CLIENT PLEADS TO A MISDOMEANOR. AVOIDS PRISON. GETS COMMUNITY SERVICE

Our client was charged with Felony theft. We were successful in defending the matter to avoid our client from having to plead to felony charges. Felony probation would have meant
that the client would have to check in with a probation officer, not leave the state without permission and other conditions.

CHARGES DISMISSED BY JUDGE ON APRIL 13, 2016 AFTER WE FILE MOTION TO DISMISS

Our office was retained on an old warrant that our client had from 2006. We had two options on how to handle this case. Option 1 would have been to simply show up with the client to court, recall the arrest warrant and plead the client guilty to the offense. That’s the easy way out that, perhaps, many criminal defense lawyers would have chosen. The other option was to challenge the state’s evidence. Simply put, we filed a MOTION TO DISMISS and argued that the charges should be dismissed in the interests of justice. Indeed, the court acquiesced that our arguments had merit and dismissed the charges against our client. At the end, having dismissed charges meant that the client did not have to pay approximately $2000 in court costs and fees, was not placed on probation and did not get any points on his driving record.

The offer before trial in this sexual misconduct case was in the range of 30-40 years. During trial, we were able to demonstrate to the jury that the complaining witness was not credible and that the relationship between our client and the victim started around 18 years of age. Accordingly, the jurors returned with a Guilty verdict as to Count 7, which allows our client to not spend the rest of his life in prison. We were successful in getting three NOT GUILTY VERDICTS on 3 life charges, as well as a dismissal of another life count.

At Kia Law Firm, we believe in aggressive representation. Sexual misconduct cases are highly complicated and our track record in defending innocent clients speaks for itself. There are many occasions where a complaining witness either lies about the allegations or fabricates/exaggerates the circumstances regarding the relationship.

In our case involving our client, we believed in our client’s innocence. Through aggressive cross-examination, including a detailed analysis of the case, we were able to discredit each and every prosecution witness.
