Two More Fantastic Outcomes: Complete Dismissal of OWI-2nd and an OWI-1st Reduced to Two Minor Traffic Tickets

1) Complete Dismissal of OWI-2nd/PAC-2nd (with .10 Breath Test Result) for CDL Client Facing Lifetime Disqualification

The stakes in this case for our client, WC, couldn't have been much higher. As an over-the-road truck driver, WC was facing lifetime disqualification of his commercial driving privileges if he was convicted of his second offense drunk driving charge. With a young family to care for, this would be financially devastating. After substantial internet research, including the outcomes described right here on the Real Results Tracker, WC put his family's future in the hands of Dennis Melowski. As of January 13, 2015, WC has nothing more to worry about. Dennis was successful in having the entire case against WC thrown out by the judge, after Dennis convinced him that the officer did not have a sufficient basis to pull WC over in the first place. It was the best possible outcome WC could have hoped for because it is as if the charges were never even issued the first place. The sense of relief WC experienced when Dennis delivered the great news had to be witnessed to be believed. Suffice it to say, he couldn't be happier.

2) OWI-1st/PAC-1st (with .10 Breath Test Result) Reduced to Two Minor Traffic Tickets

This was yet another high stakes case with a tremendous outcome. Our client, CR, is an English citizen here in the United States on a work visa as an engineer. An OWI conviction would severely compromise his status and likely would cost him his job. CR was such a valuable asset to the company for whom he worked that it was actually his employer who sought Dennis Melowski out to defend CR's case. They had as much at stake as CR...they simply couldn't afford to lose him. Despite having some  very difficult facts to overcome, including the fact that CR was called in by an off-duty police officer because of his driving, Dennis was able to undermine the prosecutor's case just enough to negotiate an outstanding resolution. Under the terms of the deal Dennis worked out, the original charge of OWI-1st was reduced to the non-alcohol-related, minor traffic offense of Inattentive Driving. The remaining PAC-1st charge was reduced to the even more minor offense of Impeding Traffic by Slow Speed. Aside from paying some fines, CR suffered no consequences. He never lost his license for even a single day and was completely spared of the awful drunk driving conviction. His work visa status went completely unscathed. Both he and his employer are thrilled.
