David Smith Law Firm Achievements in 2023

We are proud to share with you some of the notable cases and projects that we have handled in 2023. Here are some examples of how we have helped our clients in the area of criminal law:

We have successfully helped many clients achieve dismissals of their case, reductions from higher-level charges to lower-level charges, including reductions from felony down to misdemeanor, defended a client faced with 20 years in prison and obtained probation, getting juveniles released to their families from detention, and more!

These are just some of the examples of how we have served our clients in 2023. We are grateful for the trust and confidence that our clients have placed in us, and we are honored to have been a part of their success stories.

Legal Trends and Developments for 2024

As we enter the new year, we would also like to share with you some of the legal trends and developments that may affect you in 2024. Here are some of the topics that we think you should be aware of:

– COVID-19 and its impact on the legal system: The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges and changes in the legal system, such as court closures, delays, remote hearings, online filings, and more. While courts have worked hard to make up for the backlog from COVID-19 closures, to this day, many defendants’ cases are still subject to this backlog.
New laws effective January 1, 2024:  Various bills became law at the beginning of 2024, including the ban of sale of certain e-cigarette containers as well as diversion strategies and procedures for children accused of certain fine-only offenses in municipal or justice courts related to criminal matters.

These are just some of the legal trends and developments that we think you should be aware of in 2024. We will continue to keep you updated and informed on these and other topics that may affect you. We will also continue to provide our clients with the criminal legal information and representation they deserve.
