Details: Client’s mother came to Joel Mann as Client had been arrested on a domestic violence charge while he was on probation in three different felony cases. Client was looking at substantial time in prison if he did not get acquitted of the new domestic violence charge. The Police reports indicated that Client’s girlfriend called the police and told the police that Client had body slammed her 6 – 7 times. The police arrested the Client based on her representations that he had beat her. Once Joel Mann started working on the case, he met with the Client in jail and discussed the case with him. During the conversation Joel was able to determine that there was significant issues to be used in trial. Joel put the case on calendar and invoked the Client’s Constitutional right to a Speedy Trial. Within two weeks a trial was conducted before the Las Vegas Justice of the Peace. During trial, Joel was able to get the Client’s girlfriend to admit that she had made up the accusation because she found what she believed was a receipt indicating that Client was cheating on her. After listening to Joel Mann cross-examine her, the Judge determined that the so called “victim” was in fact lying and found the Client NOT GUILTY. The Judge was so upset that Joel Mann was able to expose the girlfriends lies that the Judge called the girlfriend in and threatened to throw her in jail for lying. Within one week after the Client’s acquittal Joel was able to get all his felony probations reinstated and Client released from jail. Client is now walking around and no longer looking at 9 years in prison.
Details: Client went to the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) with some friends. The Police believed that once client was inside he started to offer ecstasy to other people for sale.

His family hired Joel Mann, and within hours he was able to be released from jail. Joel sat down with the client and was able to determine where the State had weaknesses in the case. Joel was able to use this weakness in negotiating a dismissal. Client had to complete counseling, pay a fine, and stay out of trouble. Because of Joel’s negotiation the case was dismissed and the client is now sealing his record.

Client blew a .280 (over three times the legal limit). When the client came to see Joel he knew his situation was impossible. He was about to lose everything he worked for, he was in the military and a DUI conviction would end his military career. The Defendant was about to be deployed to Afghanistan, and a trial would end his ability to fight for his country. Joel Mann was able to successfully delay the case for over a year for the Defendant to return to the United States. Once he was back, Joel Mann negotiated with the prosecutor and was able to get a DUI conviction off the table. Thanks to Joel the Defendant will be able to keep his military carreer with the reckless driving negotiation.

The police believed that he was out at a bar drinking with his friend, they got into an argument and she went back to his house. Once they were back there the argument got more heated. She wanted to leave the house even though she was very drunk. The police believed that the Defendant tried to stop her from leaving the house and he was strangling her in order to stop her from leaving. When Joel met with the Defendant, he was very distraught as he had never been in trouble before and stated that this was all a big misunderstanding. Joel investigated the case, reviewed the police reports, and spoke with the prosecutor. Joel was able to convince the prosecutor that the police got the facts wrong and that the Defendant was innocent of the alleged charges. Joel Mann was able to get the prosecutor to agree to drop all the charges at the next Court hearing.

Details: Client was arrested while visiting Las Vegas. He was staying the night at the Planet Hollywood Casino when he decided to go to one of the casino bars. While getting a drink at the casino bar he struck up a conversation with an attractive woman. The conversation went on for a while and there was a lot of flirting back and forth. The woman surprised the client by asking him if he was looking to have a little fun. The answer was of course what did she have in mind. She went on to tell him that she would do things for him. Being interested he inquired further and she explained that there would be a cost. He explained to her that he was not interested at this time but would take her number if he would become interested later. She pushed further about when he would call, when they could meet up, etc. He agreed to go and talk about more of the details in his room if she was interested. They started walking to the elevators and when he got to the elevators he was arrested by a vice team that was waiting.
