The charges leveled against the client were significant and carried severe consequences.

Through a series of compelling legal arguments, Pacillio successfully convinced the Magisterial District Judge that many of the of the charges lacked sufficient evidence to proceed to trial. By the end of the proceedings in District Court, two-thirds of the criminal charges filed against his client were dismissed.
This case underscores the significance of a strong defense in the criminal justice system – beginning at the Preliminary Hearing.
