The crime of robbery occurs when one individual uses force or the threat of force when taking the property of another individual. Robbery becomes armed robbery when the aggressor is armed with a dangerous weapon such as a gun or a knife. Because a weapon is involved, the penalties for armed robbery are greater than those for robbery. Armed robbery is a felony crime, and can be either classified as a state or federal offense.

Tom, I just wanted to let you know I am very happy with the outcome of my DUI case. Thank you for your hard work and for treating me as a valued client. You went above and beyond to get me the decision you got. I was hoping for that kind of decision but knew it would be difficult to get it. I don’t know of any other CDL drivers who has received a DUI and not lost their job. I would also like to mention how attentive you were. I was surprised at how fast you returned phone calls and emails. In my dealing with attorneys in the past they are usually very slow to return calls and emails, sometimes days before I heard back. It’s those types of attorneys that give attorneys a bad reputation. You are the exception to the rule and take your job serious and treat your clients in a professional manner and as an asset, You listen to their concerns and work on getting them the outcome they are looking for not just what’s the quickest and easiest solution. In my case you could have easily taken the district attorney’s offer at the first court date of supervision disregarding the summary suspension that would have occurred and then just said there is nothing I can do about the summary suspension. But you knowing my needs of retaining my job if possible chose to postpone the court date in order to try and work out the summary suspension knowing that a supervision on the criminal case wasn’t going to keep my license if I received a summary suspension anyway. That is what really set you apart from most attorneys. I think most of them would have jumped on the supervision on the criminal case without worrying about the summary suspension. Once again THANK YOU very much. Please feel free to use this letter on your website or any other promotional tool as I would highly recommend you as an attorney in any criminal case.
