We have successfully represented hundreds of police officer, firefighters and emergency response workers in criminal cases like:
CPD Candidate, A.C. was disqualified from the applicant list based on his polygraph examination. It was alleged that A.C.’s conduct during his polygraph examination interfered with the examiner’s ability to reasonably gather data, and thus, warranted his disqualification based on an indication of deception. At the hearing, we were able to prove that A.C. did not intentionally interfere with the polygraph examination and he was erroneously disqualified. The hearing officer and the Human Resources Board both agreed that A.C. should be reinstated to the eligibility list for the position of police officer with CPD.
Client was arrested in part of a theft ring from railroad cars. Client was arrested in a sting operation and charged with multiple felonies. Our firm was able to have the felony charges dismissed and client given a misdemeanor. 16 CR 17706
CPD Candidate R.H. was disqualified from the applicant list when he revealed that there were two incident reports for an alleged domestic disturbance. At the hearing, we were able to prove that R.H. was never arrested for either incident and was not the aggressor; and the City failed to prove that R.H.’s actions constituted any conduct indicating violent tendencies. R.H. was immediately placed back on the eligibility list.
