Attempted Murder—Not Guilty Verdict

Mary and Takura represented C&N’s client in an attempted murder trial. C&N’s client was accused of luring his ex-girlfriend to a secluded area and trying to kill her by shooting her in the head. The ex-girlfriend survived and testified, as well as multiple “eyewitnesses” to the supposed attempted murder who just happened to be in the area. C&N effectively argued self-defense and informed the jury of the complainant’s true conduct that had led to this event unfolding. The government mistakenly believed its case was so strong that it made no offer, but the government learned it was wrong when the jury came back within an hour with a not guilty verdict.
