Success Stories

  • WylieLaw represented an individual who was unlawfully arrested and incarcerated for eleven (11) months due to the failure of the Police Department and the Probation Department to compare the individual's fingerprints with that of a similarly named defendant. This matter was settled in suit for over $150,000.
  • An individual was maced, sent to a hospital, and unlawfully arrested for disorderly conduct, spending one night in jail. The criminal case was eventually dismissed. With the help of WylieLaw, this matter settled for $25,000.
  • An individual was arrested for smoking a joint in a municipal park. At the arraignment, WylieLaw requested that all charges be dropped as the client was an out-of-state student who was applying to graduate school. This was an unusual request, but due to the focused attention of WylieLaw on these extenuating circumstances, all charges were dismissed.
