The client’s wife caused self-inflicted injuries but falsely claimed to the LAPD that the client had cut and beat her. As a result, the client was charged with 7 counts of Domestic Violence and faced up to 7 years in prison. Ms. Saffari fought the case and went all the way to jury trial. She presented video evidence that his wife had been the aggressor during a previous fight. She also impeached the wife with the prior inconsistent statements she had made to the police that proved she was lying. One count was dismissed by the judge after Ms.Saffari filed and successfully argued a Motion to Dismiss based on insufficiency of the evidence. The jury voted not guilty on all 6 counts.
