Dorsey vs. Dorsey
Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Case No.: CV-2015-008048
The firm handled this Child Custody case since 2018. When the firm was initially hired, their client client was facing contempt and petition to modify custody. Not only did the firm get the contempt complaint agreed to be withdrawn, but they also procured a very good custody agreement. This case went on until June 27, 2022, where the Judge Ordered the case and our Motions filed to be transferred to South Carolina. The firm represented the Mother, Elisabeth Dorsey. After handling the initial custody case, the firm handled several more, which allowed Mother and Child to move to North Carolina, then move South Carolina. The major dispute was over jurisdiction. The parties agreed to subject themselves to the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act [“UCCJEEA”] along with an agreement that jurisdiction would not be formally transferred until a certain date. Father filed last year a Petition to Modify Custody and Relocation to Pennsylvania twenty  days before jurisdiction could simply be transferred to South Carolina. The major dispute was over jurisdiction. After heated Pre-Trial Conferences and several Pre-Trial Motions, not only did the firm have Father’s Petition to Modify dismissed, the Judge not only granted the request to transfer jurisdiction to South Carolina but also all pending motions that were asking for all attorney fees and legal costs. This was a good victory.

Commonwealth v. Hogeland
Docket Number: CP-46-CR-0002841-2021
Client charged with Aggravated Assault, F1, Strangulation, F2, Simple Assault, M2, and REAP, M2. Unfortunately, we had to file to be released from the case. However, before we were released, we procured an unheard-of Plea Offer. The Plea Offer was for a Nolo Contendere Plea, also known as an Alford Plea, with two  years’ probation for pleading to the lesser Misdemeanor [M2] charge. Nolo Contendere Plea, also known as an Alford Plea, means one pleading guilty is not admitting any wrongdoing, nor can the guilty plea be used against the one pleading in any proceeding. This is an excellent plea offer. Up to the client now to decide to take it or go to Trial.
