Attorney Dan Nevins secured a dismissal for a client charged with Felony Aggravated Assault in Reading, Pennsylvania. The client had been accused of attacking a person with a hammer following a dispute outside a Reading row home. The client, who had no prior record, was facing a long prison sentence if convicted of the allegations.

Fortunately, the facts of the case did not support the initial claims. Attorney Nevins moved for a writ of habeas corpus in the Court of Common Pleas. The Judge granted the motion and the case against the client was dismissed.
