The client was initially accused of trying to kill his pregnant girlfriend over a dispute involving another female. When Bilecki Law Group was first contacted, before charges were preferred, this case was set to be charged as an attempted murder.

By working with the prosecutors, we averted the attempted murder charges, and only charges of Assault with GBH (among others) were preferred.

We then demanded a fully contested jury trial. Not long before the trial was to begin, the government offered the defense a very attractive pre-trial agreement that significantly limited the client’s confinement exposure, and we managed to cap his confinement at 6 months.
