2013 - Click here to watch a video of Fred regarding a recent successful case.
2012 – A client was charged with DUI and child endangerment. At the DMV hearing, the client had his license revoked. I filed an appeal of the DMV hearing officer and won! The client charged with DUI retained his driver’s license.
2012 – A local business owner was charged with domestic violence. The case was investigated and during that investigation it was determined the “victim” was drunk and had lied about what happened. We showed the reports and interviews to the DA and the charges were completely dismissed.
2012 – A local college student was charged with unlawful sexual intercourse, a felony which could require lifetime registration as a sex offender and inclusion on the internet because of Megan’s Law. The case was indefensible because the sexual intercourse produced a baby and the DNA confirmed the identity of the baby’s father. However, because of our aggressive representation and thorough investigation, we were able to demonstrate that the “victim” had lied on other documents filed in Family Court. Because of this information, the DA allowed for a conditional dismissal and absolutely NO requirement for registration.
2012 – I was called by a department manager of a local government agency. She told me the Police were wanting to interview her about the death of her father. People were saying that she had taken steps that killed her father. I suggested that she retain me so that I could be present when the Bakersfield Police Department detectives interviewed her. The interview was conducted in my office – on my turf. At the end of the interview, the detective indicated that his suggestion would be that the Kern County District Attorney reject filing homicide charges.
2012 – A local physician was charged with killing nursing home patients. His sentence would have been life in prison. The State said he ordered nurses to administer a drug that was not approved to control the violent outbursts of elderly nursing home patients. We obtained experts who disagreed. Expert professors from both USC and UCLA medical schools. At the end of the case, this physician got no jail time, was placed on probation, and retained his medical license.
2012– Personal Reflections,
I have not always made great decisions in my life. In fact, I have made some pretty POOR choices. I received a letter from the Department of Justice in 2008 that could, in effect, reconcile some of my poor choices. I thought I could seek reconciliation on my own. I did as the letter directed, I contacted my local public defender's office, and ultimately I could not get the results I was looking for. Finally, in 2012, I decided I needed help... I needed a professional!
I contacted Fred Gagliardini and explained my situation and my dilemma. Although, as humiliating as it was for me to explain the circumstances surrounding my case, I knew without the help of someone with proven experience, I would never receive the results I was looking for. Fred was able to look at my case and determine that the complexity of my case would need some further attention. Fred made me feel very comfortable and always treated with dignity and respect. Fred's service with the public defender's office enabled him to have numerous resources to turn to when collaboration was needed. Fred pointed me to the direction of David Kelly, who has specialized in appeals for several years, and in turn David Kelly suggested Stephanie Gunther. As I said, I have a very complex set of circumstances, and without great diligence and collaboration directed by Fred Gagliardini, I would not be in the position I am in today. I am truly grateful for Fred Gagliardini's guidance and collaboration with David Kelly and Stephanie Gunther. My motion was granted, and my life will be forever impacted. Thank you, Fred, you truly went above and beyond, and I am forever grateful.
