Under Promised and Over Delivered
I was arrested last year and was charged with one felony and one misdemeanor. Being a first-time offender I was petrified about the possibility of jail time, and having a criminal record. Carina was recommended to me by a trusted associate, and she immediately stood out as a professional whom I could trust. Once I retained Carina, she immediately went to work on my case. During the three month period leading to the pre-trial, she was able to reduce the felony charge to a misdemeanor, and negotiate no jail time. At the pre-trail, the months of negations with the city attorney's office paid off. The more serious charge was dismissed, and I plead no contest to the lesser misdemeanor charge. Because of this outcome, my employer deemed that I am not a liability, and I was able to retain my job. In one year, I plan to have the charge expunged from my record.
Because of Carina Castaneda I was able to stay out of jail, plead no contest to a lesser charge, and keep my job. I have learned valuable life changing lessons since my arrest. It was truly an intervention in my life, and I am now a better person for going through the entire process. I now live with a clear conscience and I'm very grateful that I have been given a second chance at life. Because of Carina's skill set as a criminal attorney my family has been afforded a bright future. Thank You, Carina!
