Case Results

Success in a criminal case may be achieved by persuading the government not to bring charges; by obtaining dismissal of charges before trial; by securing an acquittal at trial; by obtaining a reversal on appeal; by negotiating a satisfactory resolution; or by a combination of these outcomes. Among the successful results that Omar has achieved are the following:

Avoided Jail Time

By being persistent and prepared Omar negotiated a plea agreement with the government where his client avoided jail time and instead was sentenced to probation.


Dui Case Dropped

The government dropped a DUI case pending against a defendant after Omar persuaded the judge to grant a motion to suppress; the judge granted the motion even though there were high breath results in the case.


Charges Reduced

Through aggressive advocacy Omar persuaded the government to offer a short jail sentence to a defendant charged with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender; if the defendant was convicted at trial he could have been sentenced to more than 12 years in prison.


Indecent Exposure Charges Dropped

By thoroughly researching the law Omar persuaded the government to completely drop Indecent Exposure charges against a defendant.


Battery Charges Dropped

Omar convinced the government to drop Battery charges against his client with the client only having to complete a short online class.

Omar called the government's bluff and fought hard for his client to get battery charges dropped; the government had no choice but to drop the case after the alleged victim failed to show up to testify at trial.


Charges Reduced

Obtained Acquittal at Trial

Omar and co-counsel obtained the acquittal at trial of a defendant charged with Battery by showing the jury that the defendant acted in self-defense after she was attacked first.


Felony Drug Possession Charges Dropped

The government dropped felony drug possession charges pending against a defendant after Omar filed a Motion to Suppress; the government agreed with Omar's arguments without the motion having to be heard by the judge.


Reduced a Marijuana Trafficking Charge

Omar persuaded the government to reduce a marijuana trafficking charge to a lesser charge so that the defendant could go on probation; if the defendant was convicted as originally charged he would have been sentenced to a mandatory three year prison term.


Dropped all Charges

Through aggressive representation including taking depositions and thorough research of the law, Omar persuaded the government to drop all charges against a defendant charged with Burglary of a Dwelling and Assault. Omar continued his aggressive defense of the case even after the government threatened to charge the defendant with a crime punishable by life if he did not plead guilty.

Through effective communication with clients and quick action, Omar has persuaded the government not to file criminal charges against many defendants.

Omar has negotiated satisfactory resolutions for defendants charged with robbery with a deadly weapon, trafficking in marijuana, burglary of a dwelling, felon in possession of a firearm, sale of drugs, failure to register as a sex offender, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, grand theft, petit theft, fraud, assault, animal cruelty, possession of drugs and paraphernalia, resisting an officer with and without violence, Boating under the Influence, DUI, driving on a suspended license, and many other charges.

Omar has persuaded judges to grant favorable release conditions to defendants pending trial, in many instances over the objection of the government.
