Chad has got soul, and his soul is deep.The fear of facing double digit upstate time
disappeared whenever we spoke. I wasn't just a client to him. He went through the
case with me, like he was the one facing time. We went
through it together. But man, seeing this guy in court is something else. When he
walks into the courtroom the atmosphere changes. It's like time stops. That's
soul. But when the judge and prosecutor were speaking he just stood there silent. His
face was neutral. The judge asked Chad if there was anything he wanted to add and
that's when the real magic happened. It was like he ripped out a tommy gun from
his briefcase. No one saw it coming and the power of his words won the case. Yeah, my
man has soul."
My brother in law lied to the police. He said that I threatened him when I was
walking with my 4 year old son. Chad had enormous patience with me. He explained the
process and the impacts of my decisions in a way that was easy to understand.But I
wouldn't take any plea. So we went to trial. Chad cornered my brother in law to
admit he lied! It was amazing. I was acquitted thanks to Chad.
I don't know where to begin. Chad fought harder for me than any other lawyer
I've had. When I told him the police were making it up he went out right away to
get evidence. He got video showing that the police were lying. He always responded
immediately to my calls, and met with me whenever. Sometimes I would just drop in.
Chad always greeted me with a smile. When the prosecutors still didn't drop the
case he fought even harder. During the trial, Chad destroyed the cop on cross the
judge told the prosecutor if they didn't dismiss the case it would not end up
well. So They did. Years later, when Chad wasn't even a public defender anymore,
he testified for me in federal court. He even had the transcripts from our case.
That's how much he cares. His talents as a trial lawyer are equal to his
compassion. He is one of a kind.
I guess I really did not get a good look at the shooter
- eye witness
So many questions, I'm confused
That's not a punch, I can show you what a punch is if you would like
