Attorney Sean Hessler represented a 32-year-old handyman accused of driving under a suspended license, a Class A misdemeanor. These cases can be challenging: the state’s burden of proof is low. A prosecutor would just need to show the driver had a suspended license, and that they were driving.

Attorney Hessler approached the case creatively: while the current case was pending, he helped clear up his client’s criminal history, and got the license reinstated. This made the prosecutor happy, the case was dismissed, and the client retained his independence and freedom.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
