John Dorsey vs. Elisabeth Dorsey
Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Case No.: CV-2015-008048
Child Custody case I handled since 2018. When I was initially hired my client was facing contempt and petition to modify custody. Not only did I get the contempt complaint agreed to be withdrawn, but I also procured a very good custody agreement. This case went on until June 27, 2022 where the Judge Ordered the case and my Motions filed to be transferred to South Carolina. I represented the Mother, Elisabeth Dorsey. After handling the initial custody case, I handled several more, which allowed Mother and Child to move to North Carolina, then move South Carolina. The major dispute was over jurisdiction. The parties agreed to subject themselves to the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act [“UCCJEEA”] along with an agreement that jurisdiction would not be formally transferred until a certain date. Father filed last year a Petition to Modify Custody and Relocation to Pennsylvania twenty  days before jurisdiction could simply be transferred to South Carolina. The major dispute was over jurisdiction. After heated Pre-Trial Conferences and several Pre-Trial Motions, not only did I have Father’s Petition to Modify dismissed, the Judge not only granted my request to transfer jurisdiction to South Carolina but also all pending motions that were asking for all attorney fees and legal costs. This was a good victory.

Commonwealth v. Andrea Evans
Docket Number: CP-06-CR-0000688-2021
Felony Firearm charges for discharge of firearm into a building which carries incarceration as a minimum penalty. It is unheard of that one can receive Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition [“ARD”] for any Firearm cases. Not only did I preserve the client’s firearm rights, but I also got my client into the ARD program. This case is one of three bad reviews on Google. No clue why I would receive a bad review for this outcome. ARD is a District Attorney program. A Judge cannot put one into the ARD program. Only the District Attorney can approve one for the ARD program. Absolutely an awesome outcome in this case. Should have been a perfect review. Sadly, Google does not remove false reviews. Not even reviews from one not even associated with the business. Again, this is an awesome outcome.

Commonwealth v. Andrew Hogeland
Docket Number: CP-46-CR-0002841-2021
Client charged with Aggravated Assault, Simple Assault, and REAP. Unfortunately, I had to file to with released from the case. However, before I was released, I procured an unheard-of Plea Offer. The Plea Offer was for a Nolo Contendere Plea, also known as an Alford Plea, with two  years probation for pleading to the lesser Misdemeanor charge. Nolo Contendere Plea, also known as an Alford Plea, means one pleading guilty is not admitting any wrongdoing, nor can the guilty plea be used against the one pleading in any proceeding. This is an excellent plea offer I procured. Up to the client now to decide to take it or go to Trial.
