Zerillo Gets Theft Case Filed

Sometimes its not the big cases, but the small ones that are the most important. Today I was able to achieve a filing for our client who was charged with a misdemeanor theft. The reason this was such a victory related to the client's career. The client was studying for a career that required that the client be licensed - I won't mention the type of profession. A theft conviction may have made it difficult for the client to get this license. The Assistant District Attorney acted thoughtfully about this case, and gave our client a filing, after a significant amount of work, so the client's future career wouldn't be interrupted. ~Tim
