Case Dismissed – Assault on a Female in Forsyth County

A husband was charged with assault on a female in Forsyth County for allegedly assaulting his wife. The charge was holding our client back from applying to become a United States Citizen. Luckily, our Winston-Salem criminal defense attorney secured a dismissal of the charges against the husband. There are two sides to every story. Never is that more important than when you are faced with a domestic violence charge involving an assault on a female. In an effort to crack-down on domestic violence, prosecutors around North Carolina are refusing to dismiss or reduce assault on a female charge even if there is evidence showing innocence. You must have a committed trial attorney if you are facing these charges.

Stokes County DWI Charge Dismissed

A client approached our Winston-Salem legal team with a Stokes County DWI charge. On the second court date, DWI Attorney Luis Maradiaga informed the State that the Defense was taking the case to trial.

Father of Two Maintains Child Custody | Family Law

Our Family Attorney represented a father in Forsyth County whose ex-wife moved away and was trying to modify custody and take visitation away from the father. During the trial in Winston-Salem, the Attorney successfully argued a Motion to Dismiss ex-wife’s Motion to Modify Child Custody and the father was able to maintain custody of his two children.

Not Guilty – DWI and Failure to Reduce Speed

Client was charged with DWI and failure to reduce speed. He had left a restaurant in the late evening after having two very large beers and a bit to eat. While driving around a corner, he went off the road. The police responded within minutes. Client was put through the battery of field sobriety tests, was arrested and eventually blew a .14 at the station in downtown Winston Salem, where he was charged with DWI and failure to reduce speed. An unsuccessful motion was made regarding the accuracy of the field sobriety test; however, importantly, the testimony of the officer who testified was clearly not credible. This credibility issue was brought to the forefront by Mr. Fradin. After a full trial on the merits, and the officer’s credibility continually challenged, Mr. Fradin successfully argued to the Forsyth county court that the state had not met its burden of [...]

Dismissed – Larceny

Client was charged with LARCENY BY CHANGING PRICE TAG in Winston-Salem, however after extensive work, Attorney Clarke Dummit was able to get the case dismissed.

Primary Care Taker Granted -Motion for Contempt

Our client is the primary caretaker for the parties’ special-needs teenager. His mother repeatedly refused to pay any financial support. Our Attorney filed in Winston-Salem and successfully argued a Motion for Contempt in Forsyth County and the Judge found the mother in contempt of court, ordering her to immediately pay her past-due child support for the benefit of the parties’ child. Our client no longer has to financially support his son alone.

Dismissed – DWI won for Corpus Delicti

Our founder, Clarke Dummit, won another DWI case based upon the Corpus Delicti rule. Our client got charged with DWI after the Winston-Salem police officer heard the crash and drove over to the scene of the wreck 3 minutes later. When the officer arrived our client was out of the car with the hood open looking at the damage to the grill. There was another person at the scene who could have been driving, but our client said he was driving. There was no physical evidence that our client was driving, and the only circumstantial evidence (that our client owned the car, and was at the scene) led equally to the conclusion that he was a passenger. Our client was arrested and blew a .17 at the station. What is Corpus Delicti? Mr. Dummit of Dummit Fradin made a motion to dismiss at the close of the State’s case [...]

Dismissed – Under 21 DWI

Mr. Dummit wins again! This time, our client was a young woman who had been charged in Winston-Salem with Driving After Consuming under the age of 21. This charge is different from an over 21 DWI. When under 21, a breathalyzer reading of anything over 0.0 is, by law, enough for the charge. Mr. Dummit was able to show that proper procedures were not followed at the time our client was charged, and so the breath test could not be used as evidence. Without a breath test, the state could not prove the charge, and our client’s charge was dismissed. Dummit Fradin shows, yet again, that the state has to follow the same rules as the citizens.
