For 54 years, I have never broken the law or involved in any activities that was questionable. I had always prided myself for being a good human being. I always helped others who needed help when I could. That had changed in April of 2017. I found myself behind bars with 5 counts of felony charges and quickly realized it was not simply enough to be innocent. To extort money from me, I was painted a monster by somebody I was very much in love and shared everything I had for 10 years. Helped with two green cards (one for her child) and supported her financially, helped her put her child through collage. She called police and cried wolf.
I hired a criminal defense attorney. He tried to persuade me to accept a plea deal for 5 years home imprisonment and register as an offender. I was innocent and I did not want to accept any deal.
Then, I retained Mr. Ippolito. I realize now that the difference between being found guilty or not guilty is a sound criminal defense. And, it does not matter if you are innocent. No wonder why so many innocent people get locked up for a long time. Mr. Ippolito immediately hired an investigator to gather evidence and we worked together with supporting documents. He requested DA to dismiss the case.
Last day of the court, sitting in the court room, waiting, Mr. Ippolito walked in. When I saw his face, I thought the DA would not dismiss the case. He checked his phone and looked at the court calendar. I could see worries on his face. My stomach churned and I sank in the chair.
Then, he had small conversation with the DA. I saw his face lit up with joy, walked toward me and whispered “Dismissed!” I could not control my tears.
I wanted to bring up the last date at the court house because, it shows how much Mr. Ippolito cares.
I could have gone with public defender, or stay with my first attorney or hired some other attorney that was charging less. I believe, I would not be able write this review if I did not hire Mr. Ippolito's services. Besides, his fees are very reasonable. Every penny is worthed!
I am eternally grateful. Thank you!
