Fred Acosta and his team defended me in my multi-count, aggravated, felony domestic violence case resulting in a verdict of guilty on a single misdemeanor battery with six month conditional discharge. This outcome allowed me to keep my job and continue to support my wife and children. Fred and his office treated me with remarkable courtesy and respect. And, Fred's courtroom and professional demeanor were always impeccable. It was apparent to me from the start that Fred had expert knowledge on the workings of our local courts as well as the laws applicable to my case.
I highly recommend Fred to anyone looking for expert, dilligent, as well as compassionate representation in any criminal matter where their future and that of their loved ones is in jeopardy.
LATEST CASE RESULTS
Aggravated Battery (great bodily injury) Class 3 felony
The Defendants were related. They got into a fight with a neighbor that led into the neighbor getting injured in his eye very seriously requiring surgery. The Defendants are charged with this very serious case.
At trial Mr. Acosta argued self defense and defense of another. The State finished their case in chief and all their witnesses had testified. Mr. Acosta was going to start his case and his defense when the State’s Attorney approached Mr. Acosta and offered misdemeanors on both Defendants. This is all the Defendant’s wanted. This is what the defense was hoping for the whole time.
