Case of Mistaken Identity

Case of Mistaken Identity

Recently my firm was contacted by a woman that claimed the police had arrested her boyfriend. She told the attorneys at my firm that the police had arrested her boyfriend because the police believed her boyfriend had a warrant out for his arrest. The girlfriend told the attorneys at our firm that this has to be incorrect because her boyfriend has never been in trouble and therefore could not have a warrant out for his arrest. The girlfriend hired my firm to take care of the situation.

One of the attorneys from our firm went and spoke with the boyfriend, who was now our client, in jail. Our client explained that he had approached a police officer to ask the officer what he (our client) could do if he had his identity stolen. The officer asked our client what his name was. Our client told the officer and the officer ran a check on our client's name and told our client that he was under arrest because there was a warrant out for our client's arrest for violating probation. Our client tried to explain to the officer that he has never been on probation and that it could not be him. The officer told our client he needed to arrest him and would figure the situation out later. Nothing was done and our client sat in jail for one week before we were contacted by his girlfriend.

Because we take all our clients at their word, we knew something had to be done. The attorneys at Labovitz & Whiteley went to the judge and had the judge issue an order to compare our client's fingerprints against the fingerprints of the individual who had a warrant out for his arrest. After the fingerprints were taken and compared the results showed our client was not the individual who had a warrant out for his arrest.

It appears our client has the same name and date of birth as another individual. This other individual was the actual subject of the warrant. If the police officer that arrested our client would have actually listened to our client and if the officer would have finger printed our client to compare his fingerprints, our client would not have been falsely imprisoned for two weeks.

This case shows that you can never judge a book by its cover. This case also exposes a truth that most citizens our unaware of, which is innocent people get locked up.

At my firm we take every client at their word, and we will do everything within our legal power to fight for our client's rights.

Whatever your circumstances are, this is the man to see in St. Louis I'm obviously a criminal (even if I'm innocent), otherwise why would I know Brent? Even if there's that rare chance you're "innocent"... Whatever your circumstances are, this is the man to see in St. Louis. My case was very high profile and if Brent hadn't been in my corner I would have been a very old man if and/or when I was released from incarceration. 10+ felonies and I actually walked out of the courtroom. If you're Googling and came across this then you're done! Stop shopping around; don't buy the hype printed in magazines that a publicist promotes and those once great attorneys pay for. Spend your money on someone that's actually there for you. My case(s) have been years in the making. Brent respected me and my family. He stood up and spoke up when I was too afraid to. If you're reading this, then I truly feel your pain. Weather it's for yourself or someone you love and you're panicking and don't know what to do... It's an awful feeling. Before you say yes to any of the letters in the mail or the many other ways attorneys attack you with "you need me, I'm the best"... Talk to Brent and save your butt.
