I was charged with theft under Section 379 of the Penal Code sometime earlier this year. A friend recommended Silvester Legal LLC. Walter evaluated my case and on being told that I had an antecedent charge for the same offence, told me that the benchmark was a short custodial sentence. He said that he would work to have the prosecution agree to not ask for a custodial sentence. After some exchange of correspondence, the prosecution agreed that they would not seek a custodial sentence.
Even at the sentencing, the District Judge said that under such circumstances, the prosecution would normally seek a custodial sentence. Thankfully, she agreed with the prosecution’s recommendation on sentence and instead of sending me to jail, 3 imposed a fine. Barely 2 months after seeing Walter for the first time, I walked out of the courtroom, a free man. I am extremely grateful to Walter for what he has done for me. Somehow, he managed to get the prosecution to agree to not seek a custodial sentence. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a good criminal defence lawyer.
