Client was charged with illegal possession of a firearm and several charges related to the firearm charge. The police alleged that they observed client place an item in the rear compartment of a sport-utility vehicle.

Result: Client acquitted of all charges.
Commonwealth v. S.S.
Client accused of possessing a large amount of crack, with the intent to deliver, along with drug paraphernalia and a firearm.

Result – Commonwealth withdrew all charges.

Result: Client acquitted on all charges.
