False Accusations of Child Abuse
Every one of the clients from these and other real-life cases from around the country would be happy to be a reference for Dr. Lorandos. Just call and ask.
In a nationally publicized trial in Georgia, a kindergarten teacher was facing 22 counts of criminal sexual conduct involving three little girls. Her sentence would have been 400 or more years in prison. This teacher lost her job, her house, her children, and nearly her marriage – all before trial, as a result of merely being accused. After intense scientific research, testimony from world-renowned experts, and a month-long trial, our attorney led a legal team including several Georgia and Tennessee attorneys to win this teacher a “not guilty” on all 22 counts!
In Pennsylvania, our client (a respected medical professional) was faced with a nasty divorce. After his soon-to-be-ex wife traipsed around the Pennsylvania countryside, blithely telling anyone who would listen that she was going to take everything our client had, she got serious and filed false allegations of sexual abuse against our client. Lorandos Joshi got involved as the investigation was underway, and as a result of our expertise in these situations, all of these false criminal charges were dropped with prejudice.
An Arizona client was facing false allegations of abuse to his young son, who he was rarely permitted to see. After our attorneys took the case and did in-depth research into these allegations, we were able to show that the allegations were completely unfounded. We prevented the allegations from being formally charged, and we achieved a generous parenting plan. Today, that little boy enjoys the company of his father more than three times as much as he was allowed to see him before.
In Michigan, our client, a father of six, was facing the agonizing threat of termination of his parental rights to all six of his children. After Lorandos Joshi succeeded in getting all allegations of sexual abuse dropped, we created a strong defense for this father’s rights. After a three week trial, the petition to terminate his parental rights was thoroughly debunked and dismissed, and the father and his children are now beginning to heal.
A California resident, after attending a wedding with his dysfunctional family members in Michigan, was accused of a crime of criminal sexual conduct. The police, after listening to the “victim’s” version of the events was about to wrap up the “investigation” and request a warrant for our client’s arrest. Our attorneys’ launched an investigation and had our licensed private investigators talk to several eye-witnesses. Our attorneys also discovered several social media websites where the “victim” had posted comments that negated her claims of being a victim of a sex crime. After our attorneys presented the county prosecutors with details of our investigation, no charges were brought against the client and the case was closed.
Two local attorneys, members of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, said that they had never seen a similar case won in the 30 plus years they had been practicing in the area. The client had everything stacked against him: Muslim, affluent and Republican in blue-collar Democratic town, and intensely negative press coverage that blanketed the jury pool.
Two things won this case: (1) a very aggressive investigation plan; and (2) a very aggressive pre-trial motion plan. A team of investigators collected everything they could find on the former temporary employees who had made the accusations. In addition, the team traveled across three states to locate a crucial friendly witness. Next, the prosecution was hit hard with a series of pre-trial motions in which the personal knowledge aspect of the alleged victims was put to intense psychological scrutiny. Steps were also taken in the media to counteract the intensely negative pre-trial coverage.
The prosecution realized its case had been devastated and dropped all charges the day of the trial.
A lawsuit-happy patient decided that our client, a medical professional, had a nice building that was ripe for the taking. She informed the local police that the client was committing sexual acts during her medical visits. The police and the state's attorney general collaborated to send the woman back with a hidden video camera to tape several visits. Next, the police and the attorney general found two local “experts” in the same medical specialty to testify that what the client had done was unethical, incompetent, and completely sexual in orientation. At trial, the district attorney showed the video, got testimony from the local “experts” and even got another patient to blurt out during her testimony “He did sexual stuff to me too!” Again, our team used the science and the published research in the scientific journals to cross-examine the witnesses. The result: not guilty of all charges.
When a former beauty queen decided to divorce our client, she conspired to have him charged with attempted homicide. She manipulated the judge into violating our client's rights by having him illegally arrested and charged. Our senior attorney sued the judge in federal court and got him removed from the case. After an intense investigation of the facts and negotiation with prosecutors, the case was settled - our client plead guilty to shouting in public. Then we got him his house, his business, and his kids. The former beauty queen was restricted to visits after she got therapy.
