Tough Domestic Violence NOT GUILTY!!!

In a case in which one of the arresting officers referred to it as the "worst domestic violence case he's seen in the past ten years," Amberg & Amberg attorney Jim Amberg secured a not guilty verdict in the 48th District Court before Judge Barron.  In  the case, the complainant had suffered serious injuries including black eyes, a huge knot on her head, and half an ear torn off.  At first glance, this was a terrible situation with no winners and Jim's client looking at some hefty incarceration.  However, after reviewing the case and extensively preparing for trial, Jim presented to the jury the client's side of the story in which he was defending himself from his intoxicated girlfriend.  After a hardfought trial, the jury agreed and found Jim's client NOT GUILTY of domestic violence.
