Marisa represented a client who was charged with operating while intoxicated with a high blood alcohol content. During negotiation, Marisa was able to secure a plea deal to a lesser offense with a sentence agreement to no upfront jail despite that her client had been involved in an accident that resulted in property damage. Because of Marisa’s proactive work to place her client in educational classes and her in depth sentencing memorandum outlining the positive attributes of her client, she was able to successfully advocate at sentencing that her client should not have to do probation. Instead, he was sentenced to fines and costs. Her client is also taking his second chance seriously and is engaging in services to ensure that this never happens again.
